Travelport Hosts Trade to Golf and Spa away Day

Travelport invited their top agents to partake of a wonderful day out of the office as they hosted golfers to Concra Wood Golf Club in scenic Castleblayney, the challenging 18-hole course with a SSS of 74. The course opened in 2008 and was quite unique in having been designed by the father and nephew team of Christy O’Connor Senior and Junior. Sadly, Christy O’Connor Snr passed away this weekend.

The non-golfers were treated to a range of spa treatments in the idyllic Castle Leslie, nestled in the village of Glaslough,as the sun shone down.

All in all it was a totally relaxing day away from the office, and was enjoyed by all present.
