Best Time of Year to Visit Ireland for Golf
Planning a golf getaway to Ireland?
One of the most important decisions you can make is deciding the best time of year to visit. While the Emerald Isle is known for mild weather and lush green landscapes, each season has its own unique benefits when it comes to playing golf.
Spring brings with it longer days, warmer temperatures, and fewer crowds which makes for very pleasant playing conditions. The fairways and greens are sure to be in perfect condition during this time of year, as most courses have received their first treatments for the season. The days may be a bit shorter but there’s still plenty of daylight hours available to get in some quality rounds at championship courses like Royal Portrush, Royal County Down, Portmarnock or Portstewart Golf Club.
For those who enjoy cooler weather while they play, fall provides mild temperatures and often wetter conditions that favour a more controlled game style. The air is crisper and usually quite refreshing which can really help focus your mental game. Fall also sees less visitors on the courses, so booking tee times won’t be such a hassle either!
No matter what time of year you decide to visit Ireland for golf, one thing is certain: you won’t be disappointed! With miles of stunning coastlines, friendly people and unforgettable courses spread out across the country – your guaranteed to have an unforgettable experience!
