Ireland Golf Vacations

By Jim & Barbara Nicol

The Irish courses you read about are unmistakably scenic. The fact is, in Ireland the best golf course designer is nature herself. Into this scene come hordes of golfers from all over the world, especially Americans, hungering for true links-style golf.

World class courses and spectacular scenery are found throughout the Emerald Isle, but the west and southwest - home to famed Ballybunion and Lahinch - is uniquely enchanting and beautiful. It is rugged along the jagged coastline and idyllically serene in the hills and on the grassy plains that seem to stretch forever. No wonder this land has inspired poets and mystics.

Put Ireland on your must-play list. Golf just doesn't get much better than this. And be sure to bring a camera as you will find many Kodak moments. *

Pitching and Chipping Pitching and chipping is just a smaller version of the full swing. Maintain your triangle you create a set up and allow for some body movement
Slice Cause: Steep Swing Taking practice swings holding the club at waist lever, allowing yourself to feel the rotation of your shoulders, arms and the clubface
One-Plane Backswing Make sure to keep your right elbow behind your body during the backswing so that the left arm can continue to cross your chest and stay on the same plane as your shoulders.
