Here is the entry to the Kippure Estate, where I drove after passing through Dublin from the north of Ireland Sunday the 30th of Aug.
The Facebook page, lists an address and number in Dublin, and luckily I found signs on the back roads going to Sally gap in the Wicklows, that led me to this location. For others to find this on a pilgrimage, the learning for me, is to find a personal guide! No one was about that I could find in the Kippure estate, and they seemed to be involved in wedding prep that day I arrived -
Fortunately I notice this sign and a car parked there. I was thinking of beeping my horn as I did not know the course was down the road and across the road.
er venue....walking back to the parking lot, I noticed a man in his car then, and voila I was introduced to Kavaja Erno from Finland, who then led me to the course.
Kavaja had come to Dublin for a craft beer gathering and had already done 18 holes and was kind enough to be my guide. Thanks Kavaja!

Here is Tee # 1, with the view of the hills.

The basket here is up through the trees. Happy to have made par with a 4, as the par has change from 3 on the sign to 4 on the score card!
