These are a sample of the feedback the Louisiana Golf Association received from those who attended the 2018 trip to Southwest Ireland:

"Love playing with experienced caddies because it just isn't something we ever get to do here and made it such an authentic Irish golf experience and a treat.  I liked John (Bus Driver for the Trip) telling us the history of the course and antidotal information on our way so we would gain insights into the property. I like that we played different pairings and different competition formats each day.  I also appreciated that golf had been played on half of the properties since the 1890's and half of the properties were a more modern layout.  Really had a great time and enjoyed the trip! " - LGA Member/ '18 SW Ireland Trip Attendee

"The entire experience playing Old Head Golf Links and the beautiful weather made the trip for me.  It was awesome.  .....Having a riding cart that day the caddies didn't show up was great.  I probably missed it, but make sure folks know that is an option at some of the courses." - LGA Member/Senior Golfer/ '18 SW Ireland Trip Attendee
