You know it's a good idea when your first reaction upon hearing the news is "Why wasn't that already a thing!?", and that was our exact reaction after hearing about the launch of the World's first ever Poc Fada golf course.
Deer Park Golf at Howth Castle in North Co.Dublin is launching the new course on the back of it's successful footgolf course, and we see so reason why this won't be a big hit as well.
Former Dublin hurling manager and chairman of the National Poc Fada Committee Humphrey Kelleher told of his excitement at this new game speaking to Businessandleadership.com:
It’s a fun game that incorporates a number of hurling skills including striking from the hand, lifting and striking from the ground and the art of sideline pucks. I have no doubt that this game will go from strength to strength.
The rules are straight forward, a golf scoring system where you try to smack a sliotar into the hole in as few shots as possible.
Take a look at the photos from the launch event and prepare to want to give it a go:
A great idea, we can't wait to get involved!
