Quality Assured Courses - Choose the Shamrock
We take golf standards seriously in Ireland. And no, we’re not talking about your handicap. We’re talking about the standard of your experience.
To guarantee that you have the best time possible golfing in Ireland, simply look for the Shamrock symbol, which signals that the course is Quality Assured. This is the only scheme of its kind in the world.
What this means for you is a first-rate experience – from booking your tee time by phone or on the web, right through to your well-earned refreshments in the 19th.
Courses with the Shamrock symbol will offer visitors a warm welcome on arrival. A staff member will show you the locker rooms, showers and where to find towels. If you need a caddy car, just ask. They will be available for hire and the course shop will be open for any last-minute bits or snacks for your round.
Staff will also try to answer all your questions about the course – from whether the greens are fast to which holes are the most challenging. You can even ask about the weather forecast – although as we all know, it never rains on the golf course.
The Shamrock symbol also guarantees that the course has been well maintained so you can concentrate on having the best round of your life on excellent greens, tees and fairways. The bunkers will be in good shape too – but we won’t even go there.
And when your game is over, don’t hesitate to ask for recommendations or directions to local hotels, restaurants and attractions.
There are approximately 100 Irish golf courses boasting the Shamrock symbol. Which will you choose?
