Did you know that we have a 400 year old“Monterey Cypress” tree – our “Macracarpa” proudly standing over 45 meters tallin the middle of the 18thfairway at Dromoland Castle Golf Club ?
At first sight, it seems strange that trees normally only found on the Monterey Peninsula in California, a place of hot,dry summer, should grow in cool damp Ireland.
But as they say, “the proof is in the pudding”and over the centuries our tall, imposing tree has survived many battles,raging storms and bolts of lightning. However, today it has another battle on its “branches” as it once again becomes the nemesis for many of our golfers asthey take on the 18th green and return to our rich fairways.
Over the last four months, we have spread over 1,000 tonnes of sand on our course and more than 5,500 hours of hard work hasgone in to pruning, hollow coring and improving our course in preparation forthis very day, to swing back our Castle gates and welcome back our golfers.
We are counting down the days until we can welcomeyou, our Dromoland friends and family back to experience our magical Castle,but until then take care of each other and stay safe.
