  1. Hello to everyone here on the My Golf Spy Forums! I've been following @MyGolfSpy for a while now and am very impressed with the content so I've dove in at the deep end and joined the forums here. Of course hoping against hope that one day I might be chosen as a reviewer too! If you don't know already, I'm an active youtuber. I post videos of my practice & golfing trips. If your interested, follow the link or just pop Paddy Golf into youtube and you should find me no problem. Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZ0csQhwtccbAh-NGSIhaag? I will do my best to be active here on the MyGolfSpy forums but you can find me on the Twitter & Instagram machines @Paddy_Golf Ireland. Feel free to get in touch! Yours in golf, Paddy.

  2. Which is the best destination for a Golf trip? Scotland or Ireland? You may have read MyGolfSpy's recent blog, where we asked two respective authorities of Scottish and Irish golf to go head to head and describe the perfect golf trip to their homeland... and the then say why their itinerary (over the other) deserved the mantle of the best golf trip ever! The article can be read here For those wanting to cut to the chase, the summary is as follows.... Kieran selected the line up below for the "Best Ever Scottish Trip": 1.Old Course, St. Andrews 2.Kingsbarns 3.New Course, St. Andrews 4.Championship Course at Carnoustie 5.West Links at North Berwick 6.Muirfield 7.Gleneagles Kings Not bad! However, when you put it up against Kevin's picks for "Ireland's Best Ever Trip", it's a tough call to decide which is the best... 1.Ballybunion Old 2.Ballybunion Cashen 3.Tralee 4.Waterville 5.Dooks 6.Old Head 7.Killarney What are your views? Which trip would you take? And are you lucky enough to have played any of these courses? Or, do you disagree with their choices? And if so which Scottish or Irish courses would you place in your ultimate trip itinerary? Thanks, Guy

  6. You may have read our recent front page article on “How to Organize the Perfect Golf Trip to the UK or Ireland”… If you haven't then you can view it here. Anyway, I'd love to know any additional tips that you might have for organizing golf vacations (either to the US, UK or Internationally), so please post them below. Personally, one of the hardest things that I find when organizing a trip is to get friends (especially guys) to commit to coming, and not having them drop out at the last minute – which can cause a lot of pain. I find that the solution to that is to get the trip dates in everyone's diaries months in advance… and then get a deposit upfront from them as soon as you can (…you soon get their commitment once they've handed over hard cash!) Another top tip is; if one of your buddies snores loudly…. Then make sure that you put them a single room! (Or have a few whiskey's each the evening so that you sleep through it!) Let me know your top tips... Thanks Guy
  7. Hello MyGolfSpy My name is Guy, Director of Golfbreaks.com. We've just joined MyGolfSpy as a sponsor and I'd like to take the opportunity to introduce myself and the company to you. We're a specialist golf tour operator based out of Windsor, UK with offices in Charleston, SC and Copenhagen, Denmark. We have been providing golf vacations, to mainly European golfers, since 1998. Currently we sell over 2000 golf destinations worldwide and this year will send over 220,000 golfers on golf trips. In 2013 my co-Director Daniel Grave set up our USA office to expand our American operations and bring our bespoke service (and great value vacations!) to golfers Stateside. Our aim is to enthuse about the wonders of UK and Irish golf and encourage as many of you as possible to take a trip this side of the pond and play some iconic courses. The golf truly is great, and it is not as expensive as you might think; there are hundreds of hidden gems amongst the better known signature courses! You can find more details about our UK and Irish tours service on our USA website at: http://usa.golfbreaks.com If anyone needs any advice on golf or places to stay in Scotland, Ireland, England or Wales or is planning a golf trip to Europe then we would love to hear about it. In the meanwhile, play well! Guy
  8. Thought I share the below trip with you guys… We were 8 guys who went to Ireland for a week to celebrate my 50th and played 5 courses. Normal fines were the order of the day like: 1 Tequila: on-course swearing | club throwing | 2 shots getting out of bunker | late for breakfast 2 Tequilas: go to bed before 2am | more than 2 shots out of the bunker (there were more) The results Day 1: 93 Tequilas Day 2: 2 Tequilas Day 3: 18 Tequilas (1 guy had 11 – only took 5 and the rest the next morning before breakfast) Day 4: 33 Tequilas Day 5: All fines were cancelled – could not handle anymore! What's the lesson we learned? The fines-master is your best and only friend, treat him with respect. Don't get too friendly with the gay barman after a round of golf and lock your door of your hotel room when you go to bed. The barman will use your toilet while you are sleeping, get undressed and jump into bed with you! Never visit a local pub after your golf round and try drinking Guinness Beer with the locals. Do not mix Guinness with Tequila. Your “new friend” will take you to his home and you will miss the next day's golf. Can you image how your friends will look for you in the morning, especially when they have no idea how they got to their hotel? Don't be surprised if most the caddies at some courses are over 60 years of age and carry two bags. If you go to bed at 4am, take 6 tequilas before breakfast and tee up at 8am, you will not break 120 even if you are a 7 handicap. It is also not a good idea to play skins worth $10 per skin. When you can't run fast (very fast), I will not advise you to start a conversation with a father of a lovely lady. To approach a total unfamiliar person, just because you saw him chatting to a girl, you can certainly not tell the guy how much you like the lady at the bar, how well she is build and have the courage to explain in detail what you will do with her. Yes, the guy will also “chip in” with some thoughts of his own, but once he realized that you two are talking about two different girls and the one you like is his 22 year old daughter – then you run and rely on your friends to apologize on your behalf. Not a regular alcohol consumer: It's not a good idea to play golf with 7 buddies if it's your 50th birthday and don't win the competition - not even if you are thousand miles away from home and your family (yes, including your wife). You will have 7 guys complaining about your mom giving birth 50 years ago, question why you are not a girl (just because they will have more “fun” with you) and please do not try playing 18 holes the next day. You might just look down the first fairway after you're first shot and find the ball is still on the tee. Keep golfing ......
  9. Hello everyone, I moved from Ireland to Chicago and I am looking forward to playing a few courses in the Chicago area, any recommendations?
