The Reciprocal with Old Head has been great. I can visit by myself and be paired with either a member or another “visitor”, bring guests of my own and avail of the guest fee rather than the full fee. The course is wonderful, the staff very friendly and Kinsale is a fabulous Irish village. ~Bill Acton
Pictures speak louder than words— My experience at Old Head was amazing. My first solo trip to Ireland, and I loved every minute. The Lodging, Food, Friendship and meeting fantastic people from around the world. See photo of Paddy and Shane. ~Moe Carruthers
My family has had the pleasure of going to Martha’s Vineyard in the summer and utilizing The Boathouse and The Field Club. The facilities and the service are excellent. We used the gym at The Field Club almost every day and while we were there had some great meals in Edgartown at The Boat House. ~Jim Hornung
Pine Creek – Absolutely fantastic and top notch service! The team there made you feel like the most important group ever visiting. The “cottages” while looking rustic on the outside, are quite the opposite on the inside. The clay shooting was tremendous fun, even for those of us who were first timers at such. The gentlemen they had work with us I understand is a two time world champion (not that you would know from his humbleness!), and he was able to dial us in on the targets in no time. As far as the dinner at the main lodge, don’t even know what to say; the chef literally asked us what we wanted to eat and when. They gave us a tour of the kitchen and wine room, and then sent us to the outdoor stone fireplace for a cocktail and some pheasant while they prepared a wonderful dinner. Will definitely plan to go back. ~Paul Chance
Spanish Peaks – made us feel right at home like they would any member of the club. Unfortunately for me and my son, we only had 24 hours at the property, and believe it or not, on July 30th they had a freak storm come through (okay, they said not completely uncommon even in height of summer) and the temperature dropped from 57 to 36 degrees in a matter of minutes as we were driving up the mountain. Hail came down and absolutely covered the ground, so we were on a “hail delay” (yes, July 30th!). The club took good care of us while we waited it out enjoying their “Montana Mule” and they felt so bad for the Florida guys that they let us go out late in the day regardless of the continued weather delay. Course was in fantastic condition, and the views were truly amazing. We only got in four holes as the temperature hovered at 41 degrees, and the wind picked up with light rain – more that this Florida duo could handle! My son very much wants to go back to try to get a round in, and I am sure we will get that trip on the agenda in the near term. ~Paul Chance
Joe, I wanted to thank you for creating our affiliated clubs program. Valerie and I are with The Epperts in Old Head, Ireland. Wow! This place is spectacular. It is honestly the most impressive place I’ve ever played. The staff could not be any nicer, the suites are perfect and the golf course and the views are over the top!
Having the chance to play Spanish Peaks last year and now Old Head this year are such added extra perks of belonging to our great home club, The Dye Preserve. Thank you! By the way, met a member of Old Head last night and he was raving about what a special deal it is for him as well, he loves getting to play The Dye and mentioned how great the Dye staff is especially Matt and Hiroshi! ~Pat Horan
Last March Lillian and I took two other couples to the Pine Creek Sporting Club for a weekend. We are all avid bird hunters. The accommodations were fantastic. Cottages very well done. Arrived Friday night and had a spectacular dinner. On Saturday, we did a walking pheasant hunt, which was great. That afternoon we did a tower shoot. Our wives did a horse ride which was also very nice. Would recommend to any members. ~Jay Swanson
We had heard a lot of high praise about Old Head prior to going. All the praise was quite “spot on”. The golf course is immaculate. The views are spectacular. The accommodations are all anyone would even imagine and more. All could not be possible without the kind and attentive staff.
Looking forward to returning in the near future. ~Ron and Diane Eppert
