A Journal, with Pictures


by on Aug.29, 2013, under Happenings

On Wednes­day the plan was to stop on our way to Lahinch and play Doon­beg. It was rain­ing and the wind was blow­ing so we decid­ed to take the day off from golf. We drove to Lahinch and checked into the Lahinch lodge which is almost with­in walk­ing dis­tance of the golf course. We did some tour­ing and vis­it­ed the local woolen shop, pur­chased some sweaters. We have lunch, then a lit­tle relax­ation, then din­ner at a very pop­u­lar seafood restau­rant along the coast. We are ready for golf on Thurs­day. Over the next three days we enjoy the beau­ti­ful Lahinch golf course, which is a clas­sic Irish links course. Every hole is unique and chal­leng­ing. Adding to the charm is a mix­ture of sun, clouds, wind and rain usu­al­ly occur­ring dur­ing the same round. In the evenings we dine at a dif­fer­ent restau­rant and then have a night cap at the 19th hole a local pub with music and plen­ty hap­pen­ing. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, Paul has a fam­i­ly med­ical emer­gency and has to leave after the first day of golf in Lahinch. The rest of us fin­ish the trip, enjoy­ing the golf and Ire­land. Sun­day its up ear­ly for the one hour dri­ve to Shan­non, then our flight on to Newark and then my flight to Cincin­nati. It turns out to be a long day for me due to a flight delay in Newark, but as always great to get home. It was a great trip with golf on two great cours­es, lots of laughs with fun peo­ple and a chance to soak up the unique Irish coun­try­side and charm of the people.
