Matt Ginella’s Journey to Ireland

On August 12th this year I was sitting in the Oakfield clubhouse, while Graham was out on the course, and saw the Golf Channel broadcast an interview with Matt Ginella about his recent trip to southwest Ireland.  Ginella is a travel writer for the Golf Channel, Golf Digest and Golf World.  Sounds like a tough gig!

The interview segment was about his “Top 5” courses in SW Ireland.  All 5 courses are on our Itinerary.

The “Top 5” in order from 1 to 5, in his opinion, are:  Waterville, Lahinch, Ballybunion Old, Tralee, and Old Head.

The remarkable thing about Matt Ginella’s trip was that he played the exact same six courses that we are going to play (barring any changes), in the same order!

Here is the video of Matt’s trip to Ireland.  If this doesn’t get you pumped for the trip, well……
