Their action-packed itinerary will include some of our top golf courses – including The K Club, Lahinch, Dromoland Castle, Mount Juliet and Druids Heath. They will visit the Cliffs of Moher, House of Waterford Crystal and Powerscourt Distillery and will enjoy a walk on the Medieval Mile in Kilkenny.

Our aim is to remind them that Ireland offers some of the very best golf in the world and has something for everyone, from beginner to pro.”
