Costa del Sol Golf Day at Powerscourt

Costa del Sol Golf Day at Powerscourt

The scenic course at Powerscourt, in the garden of Ireland, Co Wicklow, was the venue for this year’s ‘Sol Cup’ sponsored by Costa del Sol Tourism – although the weather was not synonymous with the sunny greens of the Costa del Sol!

John Spollen, Joe Tully, Clem Walshe and Michael Doorley were at Powerscourt Golf Club

There were a few ‘fair weather golfers’ who failed to make the first tee box, but those who played had a great day of golf and thereafter enjoyed the hospitality of the Costa del Sol hosts at the 18th.
