Tulfarris Hotel and Golf Resort
Tulfarris Hotel and Golf Resort, Blessington, Co. Wicklow has something for all the family this Halloween.
The stunning hotel and golf resort which is set on the shores of the Blessington Lakes will hold a child friendly, residential Ghostly Golf Camp which includes golf tuition for children and lots of family fun activities.
The two-night golf camp is suitable for boys and girls staying with their parents aged between 7 and 14 years of age and runs from the 28th – 30th October. Each morning children will be given golf tuition with the resident Tulfarris Club Professional, Tom O’Neill.
The camp is suitable for first time golfers and improvers and will include three hours of tuition each day from 9.30am – 12.30pm. The children will learn the fundamentals of the game and will be tutored on all aspects including short and long game skills. On the morning of the 30th of October, Simon Thornton, Tulfarris Hotel and Golf Resort’s Touring Pro will also hold a golf clinic for adults.
Tom O’Neill said, “if you have a child who is interested in golf, wants to learn or wants to improve this is the camp for them. Although the children will be learning some great skills and techniques it will all happen in a fun environment. We want the kids to enjoy themselves and perhaps even be inspired to take up golf themselves. All the equipment will be provided so the only thing the children need to bring is themselves!”
The Ghostly Golf Camp is priced from €109 per adult sharing in a Deluxe Family Room (total price for 2 adults and 2 children is €488). It includes two mornings of golf tuition for the children, one evening meal, afternoon family fun activities and a late checkout. On arrival, adults will enjoy a Halloween cocktail while the children will be served a ‘Monstrous Mocktail’.
On the first day, and following a busy morning of golf, all the family will take a 10-minute drive over to CP Adventures in Russborough House for 2 hours of fun including zipline, abseiling, archery, bungie trampoline and more. On either evening guests can enjoy a family meal in the award-winning AA Rosette Lime Tree Restaurant. Later, a children’s spooky film will be screened where the children will be served popcorn and drinks, leaving the parents with a few hours of ‘me time’!
Set across three peninsulas the stunning 18-hole championship golf course was designed by celebrated course architect Patrick J. Merrigan.
