The story behind the show
It’s a conversation we all have in the clubhouse. “Where is your favourite course? Which is your favourite hole?” But it just so happened that this conversation was at Wentworth with former Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley. He’s played all over the world in some of the biggest tournaments and designed a few courses too. So, he should know!
So, he started plotting this golfing expedition and we had anywhere in the world to begin our journey but just like his career he wanted to start in the island of Ireland. And what a journey it turned out to be. From the most northern spot of the island of Ireland, Donegal, south to Kinsale, as far west as Belmullet and East as Downpatrick.
