Race to the Emerald Isle
PGA Assistant Players of the Year 2021

After reaching the top four PGA Assistant players of the year for 2021, Scott Ford and Dylan Newman won a complimentary trip to Ireland to play some of the best courses Ireland has to offer – Royal Co. Down, Portmarnock Golf Club, The Island and Royal Dublin.

As proud sponsors of the PGA Met Section for over five years, Travelling the Fairways hosted the winners in Dublin last week who brought along their wives Susan and Carly to share in the experience. The weather forecast for the trip looked ominous but as the luck of the Irish would have it, the clouds cleared, and the stunning views were complimented with clear blue skies.

Stay tuned for more!
