Tranquil overlook of the Eagle's Nest mountain and waters of the Long Range that connects the Killarney lakes.

Missed out on traditional Ireland golf conditions last week so had them at @TheGlenClub this morning: 44* and 22 mph. ๐Ÿ’จ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช

Next trip to Ireland: Spending a half-day watching Americans contemplate the tee shot on Lahinch's famed Dell hole. โ›ณ๏ธโ›ฐ๐ŸŒ๏ธ

"Ballybunion *really* doesn't start until the 6th hole," said my caddie. ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿ’จ

Happy National Golf Day! โ›ณ๏ธ May your days be filled with fescue fairways ๐ŸŒพ, hickory clubs ๐ŸŒณ and nine-somes ๐ŸŒ๏ธ

Lionel Hewson and Tom Simpson were given an ideal canvas at Ballybunion and couldn't miss, routing holes 2 (pictured here), 11 and 16 to feature approach shots through gaps in the dunes. โ›ฐ๐ŸŒ๏ธโ›ฐ

Lahinch is fittingly surrounded by the dunes, sea and the community. They welcome you in as if you're a local.

A final walkabout St. Stephen's Green before heading home. Thanks for a great trip, Ireland. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฎ

Looking back down the 11th hole, where the approach shot is played from a terraced fairway through a gap in the dunes to a green that sits up abruptly.

"In Dublin old city
Where the (doors) are so pretty...." ๐ŸŽถโ˜˜๏ธ

At the Merrion's classic No. 23 bar, the signature drink is 'The Big Fella,' a twist on the Old Fashioned as it's made with a lightly peated Talisker 10, Mouchao Licorosco fortified wine & hazelnut syrup. ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Herbert Warren Wind, the doyen of American golf writers, on first viewing the Ballybunion links back in 1967, described it as "nothing less than the finest seaside course I have ever seen." The iconic 11th hole is certainly ๐Ÿ’ฏ.
