2015

The Kildare Club Golf Resort (abbreviated The K Club) is situated approximately forty minutes from Dublin City, the K Club’s two golf courses are considered to be two of Europe’s finest Championship Courses and both The Palmer Ryder Cup Course and The Palmer Smurfit Course were designed by Arnold Palmer and is where the 2006 Ryder Cup was held which adds a unique statement to the event.

The Ryder Cup Gallery in The Palmer Clubhouse relives that special day in 2006 and is where you can spot the USA Presidents and Sports Stars on show.

Tom Tom Golfer

Nov 26th
2015

You might rely on a TomTom device to get you to the course but now you could be calling on them to navigate you round the course too, thanks to the launch of the TomTom Golfer GPS watch. It’s one of only a few wrist GPS devices to offer hazard distances, pin distances and lay-up points as well as your usual front, middle and back yardages.

Weighing in at just 53g and 11.5mm thick, the watch is discreet and easy navigation is enhanced thanks to the use of a four-way navigation button located beneath the screen – a feature that can be found on TomTom’s other Sport GPS devices. The position of this button makes it easier to use and scroll through the various functions.

“Understanding the challenges ahead will help golfers to improve their score,” Corinne Vigreux, TomTom’s Managing Director, told TG. “The TomTom Golfer provides at-a-glance graphics to critical course data, helping golfers to make smarter decisions.”

There’s detailed data on more than 34,000 global golf courses, and it can be wirelessly synced to a dedicated smart-phone app to ensure up-to-date course data is always at hand. You should easily be able to get two rounds out of it with a 10-hour battery lifespan in GPS mode.

As well as offering precise yardages, the TomTom Golfer will allow users to track their round scores. Shot distances and round times can also be logged.

Golf Books #210 (Tales from Q School: Inside Golf’s Fifth Major)

Nov 24th
2015

75635It is the tournament that separates champions from mortals. It is the starting point for the careers of future legends and can be the final stop on the down escalator for fading stars. The annual PGA Tour Qualifying Tournament is one of the most grueling competitions in any sport. Every fall, veterans and talented hopefuls sweat through six rounds of hell at Q school, as the tournament is universally known, to get a shot at the PGA Tour, vying for the 30 slots available. The grim reality: If you don’t make it through Q school, you’re not on the PGA tour. You’re out. And those who make it to the sixday finals are the lucky ones: hundreds more players fail to get through the equally grueling first two stages of the event. John Feinstein tells the story of the players who compete for these coveted positions in the 2005 Q school as only he can. With arresting accounts from the players, established winners, rising stars, the defeated, and the endlessly hopeful, America’s favorite sportswriter unearths the inside story behind the PGA Tour’s brutal all-ornothing competition.

Makai Golf Club, Hawaii (USA)

Nov 23rd
2015

Situated along the north shores of Kauai, Makai Golf Club was the first resort course on Kauai and one of only two 27-hole layouts in Hawaii. Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed the course, which opened in 1971 and he redesigned it in 2009. The renovation made the course even more challenging by reconfiguring the green complexes, adding length to some holes, and reshaping the bunkers.

Carved into a sloping hillside, perched high above the Pacific overlooking the beautiful Hanalei Bay the now known as The Prince Course is now 18 distinct holes comprised of the former “Ocean’ and ‘Lakes’ nines. The remaining nine holes, known as ‘Woods’ is now a nine-hole course which appeals to new golfers, novice golfers, families and those who play the game on a more casual basis. But wait, there’s more…
