Story Submitted by Jeff Blind, account manager, Cleveland East CLS Although Ireland is known for its beautiful rolling green landscape, not many people think of this small-scale country as a golf destination. Jeff Blind, account manager for Cleveland East CLS office, would beg to differ after Blind and his MyDavey Bulletin took a week-long golf trip to the glorious Emerald Isle. "Ireland is home to some of the greatest courses in the world," Blind says. "Hands down." THE MYDAVEY BULLETIN HITS THE GREEN Blind was accompanied on the green by his two brothers John and George, his cousin, Bill, and their golf caddy Kevin O'Loughlin. Together, with The MyDavey Bulletin in hand, they snapped a commemorative photo at the first tee of The Lahinch Golf Club. While Jeff's Bulletin made the trip, the photo was too small to print. Blind knew The Lahinch Golf Club was going to be his favorite course because of its rich history and es- tablished designers. The course was designed in 1894 by "Old" Tom Morris and then slightly re-designed in 1926 by Alistair MacKenzie, who then sailed back to the United States to design Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia. Blind will never forget his moments on the greens of Ireland, golfing by day and roaming the famous Ireland pubs by night. "Truly the trip of a lifetime," Blind says. "Eight straight days of golf on the greatest links courses in the world." WORLD DAVEY AROUND THE The Davey Tree Expert Company P.O. Box 5193 Kent, Ohio 44240-5193 FUN FACT: Many of Ireland's golf courses were designed in the 1850s, with the help of small hooves. Sheep engineered the golf- ing greens by nipping away native grasses on flat lands and burrowing into the land to hide from the wind, creating sand bunkers.
