With new look the Old County is among best in the country

THE new Old County is the talk of the town.

You could call it the Kimmage Manor or the Crumlin Cathedral.

In any language, Old County is one of the delights of the pitch and putt circuit.

It held it's Open last week. Those that teed off were most impressed with the surroundings.

All winter the faithful had been toiling away improving the venue, on and off the course.


There are three new greens. The opening hole got a facelift. The clubhouse has never looked better. And there will always be something cooking in the brand new kitchen.

"It's wonderful to see the changes that have been made," states Dublin PRO Keith Redmond.

Old County nestles in alongside the famous O'Toole Park. Often, pitch and putt folk would take a peep at the action unfolding over the fence.

Their own location certainly presents a course with a view. It's enhanced with elegant flower beds -- these days it's smelling of roses.
