Experience Ireland Golf & Travel Invitational 2017

Experience Ireland Golf & Travel (EIGT), hosted its Inaugural EIGT Invitational Day at Killarney Golf & Fishing Club on Friday 3rd November 2017.

Nearly 80 golfers, from all over the Irish Tourism Industry and further afield, took part on the day, in glorious sunshine beside the beautiful lakes of Killarney. A 12pm Shotgun Start got all the golfers on the course at the same time and many of them made the most of the fantastic weather and great condition of the Killeen Course at Killarney Golf & Fishing Club in posting some superb scores on the day.

Following the golf, there was a Craft Beer Tasting with Carlow Brewing Company while Halewood Wines & Spirits were on hand to give the attendees some of the finest whiskeys & gins to sample. Dinner was provided by the new caterers at Killarney Golf & Fishing Club – Geraldine, David & Team – which went down a treat after a great day’s golf. The Inaugural Winners of The EIGT Invitational were representing Killeen House Hotel, in the form of Stephen Foley & Derek Kelly who shot 47 points on the day. They went away with a Motocaddy Golf Bag each plus The Invitational Shield and hats from The Caddy Guy Ireland – a fantastic haul!

The Carlow Brewing team came 2nd on 44 pts, on the countback from Mount Wolseley (Eamonn O’Donnell & Michael White) who finished 3rd on the same score. The 43s were next – Trump Doonbeg (Kevin Kenny & Michael) were 4th while the Killarney Golf & Fishing Club team consisting of Lady Captain Sheila Crowley and outgoing President Breda Duggan. Derek Kelly also picked up the Nearest the Pin prize while Jason O’Leary from Dromoland claimed the Longest Drive with one of the final tee shots of the day on Killeen’s 18th Hole.

The feedback was fantastic from the golfers, both about the condition of the golf course and also the meal served afterwards. Of course, Experience Ireland Golf & Travel were also commended on somehow organising a summer’s day in November!!

Alice Thompson and Tom Kennedy of EIGT both spoke about the company and its plan for the future, including its 2018 Tournaments of which there are 4 – The Social Media Open in April, Social Media Parkland Championship in June, Social Media Open North in July and Social Media Links Challenge in August.

We hope to make it an Annual Tournament in the future!
