A Dublin Golf Course Is Now Combining Golf With Hurling
They're calling it 'Poc Fada Golf'
You can now play golf with a hurley and sliotar at the world's first Poc Fada course at Howth Castle's Deer Park Golf Club.
The game closely follows the rules of a regular game of golf, only the choice of stick and ball have been altered. The use of various hurling skills have also been incorporated into the sport, such as striking from the hand and rising the sliotar.
Based on an idea by Julian Gaisford-St Lawrence, whose family built Howth Castle, the new sport is endorsed by the GAA and the National Poc Fada Committee, who had an active involvement in its development.
