Golf’s Greatest Holes

Alison Metcalfe, Tourism Ireland’s Head of North America, said: “Tourism Ireland was delighted to support the production of ‘Golf’s Greatest Holes’, hosted by Paul McGinley and Chris Hollins. With many people across the United States set to watch the series on NBC’s GolfPass – and subsequently with a huge audience set to watch elsewhere around the world – it’s a great way to shine a spotlight on our world-class golf. It will highlight the fact that Ireland offers golfers the complete package – with some of the very best golf in the world, stunning scenery and the warmest of welcomes. Our message is that Ireland is open for business again and we cannot wait to welcome back our American golf visitors.”

Speaking about Golf’s Greatest Holes, Paul McGinley said: “I’m so pleased Chris and I have had a chance to share our incredible golfing journey with an American audience. We had so much fun making the series, and while we managed to play at some of the most famous courses in the world, we were also lucky enough to visit some truly memorable golf holes slightly off the beaten track, that any American golfer should be sure to include on a future golf tour.”
