Annual Retailer Golf Event 2018

This year we returned to the stunning coastal location of Portmarnock Hotel and Golf Links for our annual two day retailer golf event.



After arrival and brunch at the Jameson Bar, day one was used for settling in and practicing that all important swing.



Once our guests had brushed up on techniques and discussed tactics, they joined together to enjoy a BBQ and drinks in the Secret Garden and Links Suite before retiring for an early night in preparation for the big day ahead.




After breakfast in The 1780 Restaurant the forty strong team of golfers set out. Feeling refreshed on the beautiful sunny morning of day two, all hoped they would be in with a chance of winning the competition.


The itinerary for the day included...

Longest drive on the 6th, BBQ with gourmet burgers and beers on the 10th tee

Nearest the pin on the 11th and a refreshment stop on the 14th to re-energise for the final 5 holes, before tackling the very long 19th at "The Snug"! 

The course was demanding but the breath taking views of the famous five-mile "Velvet Strand" made it that much more enjoyable.


Take a look at the photos from day two.







After an enjoyable day out on the course the group celebrated with a prize giving dinner in the Links Suite.
