Day 1:
Depart USA for Shannon, Ireland.

Day 2:
Upon your arrival in Shannon you will be met by a SGH Golf you will be met by your SGH Golf tour manager driver, who will assist you with your luggage and show you to your waiting motor coach. You will then transfer to Killarney and your Designated Hotel.

The rest of the day is free to relax and unpack or optional golf is available.

Day 3:
Today after breakfast golf will be arranged at Old Head Kinsale.Old Head Golf Links is built on a 220-acre diamond of land, jutting out over two miles into the Atlantic Ocean. The promontory is almost an island with numerous caves running beneath your feet as you play the course. The links and practice area occupy 180 acres and the remaining 40 acres of unspoilt cliff (rising in places to over 300 feet) frame the course. Non golfers may like to tour the town of Kinsale.

Day 4:
This morning golf will be arranged at Tralee Golf Club. Designed and built by Arnold Palmer, this stunning setting represents a true paradise for those willing to challenge what is widely acclaimed as one of the finest links courses in the world. Smitten at first sight, Palmer would later go on record with this memorable quote: "I may have designed the first nine, but surely God designed the back nine". It comes as no surprise to learn that, due to the majestic beauty of this setting, Palmer choose it to be his first and, arguably, his finest golf course in Europe. Non golfers may like to spend the day in the Dingle Peninsula.

Day 5:
Today golf has been arranged at Waterville Golf Links. Make no mistake about it; Waterville Golf Links in Kerry is one of the finest links golf courses in the world, never mind Ireland. Located on the Ring of Kerry, the surrounding scenery and quality of golf holes is breathtaking to say the least. The front nine holes, which were designed to contrast with the more rugged and exposed closing stretch, begin with the chillingly named "Last Easy", a fairly ironic name given the fact that it's not really that simple. Each hole at Waterville is a wonderful experience, with the 2nd and 3rd holes, both par fours, being particularly impressive. Non golfers may like to tour the Ring of Kerry.

Day 6:
This morning after breakfast golf will be arranged on the Ballybunion Old Course. After playing Ballybunion for the first time, you would think that the game of golf originated there. Located on the Shannon estuary, it is a true seaside links course, virtually treeless and a course of sharp contours throughout. It looks like a course laid out on land back in the 10th century. While there would appear to be a lot of blind shots, there aren't. It is a course that will test your patience. After golf you will transfer to Lahinch and your Designated Hotel.

Day 7:
After a full Irish breakfast, the great Lahinch Golf Course will test your golfing skills today. Known as the St. Andrews of Ireland, the Old Course was originally laid out by Old Tom Morris. It is a classic Irish Links in every sense with plenty of blind shots, cavernous bunkers, and large, sweeping sand dunes. Holes number 4 and 5 (The Klondyke and The Dell) propose that you play completely blind to your target area, the latter with a volcanic-like green setting. A visit to Lahinch is a must for any student of the game. Non golfers may like to view the Cliffs of Moher.

Day 8:
Today after breakfast you will depart Shannon for home.

All golf and hotels are subject to availability.
