You can say many things about the Irish but you cannot accuse them of resting on their laurels in terms of their golf courses. The past few years have witnessed many changes to existing layouts and many additions to an already mighty array of world-class golf courses. And though it’s hard to pick particular courses worth of special mention, it must be said that the developments at Waterville Golf Links in Kerry and the addition of The Heritage Golf Club in Laois are just two examples of the constant improvement in the Irish golfing product.
If you had played Waterville three years ago, you would have thought there was no way you could make it better but that is just what the renowned US golf course architect, Tom Fazio, has succeeded in doing. Beginning with a few minor tweaks, the work was tackled in phases over three years and has resulted in the radical redesign of five existing holes, along with the addition of two completely new holes – the downhill 194-yard 6th and the superb 424-yard 7th, which plays along a rising fairway edged on the right by a deep burn. Of the other alterations, the changes to the 1st and the 16th are probably the most dramatic and must be seen to be believed. In short, what was always magnificent; is now breathtaking!
In a country that has seen the opening of many excellent new courses recently, it speaks volumes that The Heritage is being hailed as one of the very best. Co-designed by Seve Ballesteros and Jeff Howes Golf Design, The Heritage is a different type of course that neither fits the “parkland” or “links” tag exclusively; and this is central to it charm. Situated about 40 miles from Dublin just off the M7 Route, The Heritage can be played from a Dublin base or is ideally located to play on the way to the Cork or Kerry region from Dublin. The clubhouse is truly magnificent and overlooks both the 9th and 18th greens, while a luxury hotel, conference centre and leisure club is set to open later in 2005.

Car trade-in deals
Personal Auto Brokers knows the true value of your car so we will negotiate a fair
price for you and you will get the best car trade-in deals. Most times what we get the
dealer to pay for your used car is $400-$3000 more than what you would have
received on your own.
Mileage, upkeep and overall condition are the 3 major components that determine
the worth of your used car. When determining the value of your used car, the lowest
estimate will probably be from the dealer. In the majority of dealerships nationwide,
the average gross profit on a used car is higher than that on a new car, even though
the selling price is less. Why? Because dealerships make it a point to get trade-ins
at the lowest possible price to ensure a higher gross profit when sold.
Don’t let this happen to you! Let Personal Auto Brokers get you the full value of your
