Macreddin Golf Club named best hidden gem


The team at Macreddin Golf Club in Aughrim are celebrating this week after the club was named as the 'Best Hidden Gem in Leinster' at the recent Golfer's Guide to Ireland Awards.

The results of the 2015 Golfers Guide to Ireland Awards were announced at a special event in Druid's Glen Golf Club last week, which was attended by over 100 golf clubs and golf sector companies.

The awards which recognise the top Irish Golf Clubs and associated golf interests in Ireland are the result of an all-Ireland poll undertaken from within the golf and golf related business community.

The Paul McGinley designed course which is adjacant to the Brooklodge Hotel beat off stiff competition from within County Wicklow and the wider Leinster area to take the award.

Speaking after the win Aindriú Jackson, General Manager of Macreddin Golf Club, said 'we are honoured to receive this award and delighted that all the hard work that has gone into Macreddin in recent years has now been recognised'.

There was further Wicklow success when host venue Druid's Glen emerged as the overall winner in the Best Resort category.

'With so many positives coming on stream at all levels it was a privilege to recognise individual achievement by those involved in the grass roots of our industry,' said Paddy McCarthy of Golfer's Guide to Ireland Magazine.
