Freedom of the Fairway

Posted to Wanderlustings by Daniel on 19th August 2019

Escaping the electric pace of the everyday world around us is something that we all crave, allowing us to take a step back and refresh. The historic game of golf has been a soothing tool utilised by many for generations and has become an aspect of everyday life for millions across the world. The United Kingdom is blessed with the most enviable of landscapes and a varied range of courses embrace this charm.

Ireland

Known for never-ending landscapes accompanied by edge of the world views and thick melodic tones, the Emerald Isle is not something to be missed by any keen golfer. Despite its size, Ireland has a fierce reputation of producing some of the best players to ever grace the sport, whilst also flaunting some of the most awe-inspiring courses on the planet.
