Bill Murray’s epic Irish golf tour is becoming the stuff of legend and it would not have been complete without a visit to Lahinch. The Hollywood star could not resist hamming it up for the cameras in Co Clare and while Kyle Cannon, Operations Manager at Lahinch, did not roll out the red carpet, Bill was lavished with the usual top service that greets all visitors.
Murray and Co travelled the length and breadth of the country and played a host of course from Connemara Golf Links to Donegal, St Patrick’s Links at Rosapenna, Portsalon, Narin and Portnoo and Carne to Carton House, Enniscrone, Galway Bay, and Ballybunion.
The trip was organised by American writer Tom Coyne — the man who walked around Ireland a few years ago with his clubs on his back and penned the book, A Course Called Ireland.
He had help from Tom Kennedy’s Experience Ireland Golf & Travel company, as the trip is being filmed for Coyne’s Youtube series, The Links Life.
It was a family trip organised in place of Murray’s appearance in the JP McManus Pro-Am, which has been postponed for the past two years due to the pandemic.
