Heroin courier got into €837k drugs deal to ‘pay golf fees’

“A man who was caught up in an €837,000 heroin deal told gardaí he got involved to make money to pay his golf fees.”

Now that’s commitment to the game haha

According to the Independent.ie “Michael Smallhorn (57) was to get paid €200 to act as a courier, Dublin Circuit Criminal Court heard.

A search of a Citroen car parked on the lane around the corner recovered 5.9 kilos of heroin.

After his arrest Smallhorn told gardaí that he was paid by an unidentified man to leave the keys for the Citroen on the wheel.

The man told him to go and have a cup of tea and in the meantime someone was going to come to the car, pop the boot and take something from it. He was told he would be paid €200 for this but he never got this money.

He said he wanted the money to pay his golf fees. Judge Pauline Codd said: “I’m having difficulty assessing his motivation in getting involved”.” – Irish Independent

Hidden Gem Of The Month | Charlesland Golf Club

DCIM106MEDIADJI_0039.JPG

Set in the shadow of the famous Wicklow Mountains, Charlesland Golf Club was designed by one of Ireland’s most celebrated and prolific course designers, Eddie Hackett, whose masterpieces include the legendary links courses Waterville, Connemara, Murvagh and Enniscrone.

Course Guide 

Charlesland has always been known as a challenging but fair test of golf, in a beautiful setting. Take a look at some of the feature holes below.

Hackett’s trademark was to keep his layouts sensitive to the natural terrain. He didn’t talk so much about designing golf holes as finding them, and he liked to say of his creations “it’s just as nature intended.”

Hackett’s courses tend to be long from the back tees, with clearly visible landing areas, large greens and spectacular elevated tees, and they have a maturity and grace. Such is the case with the par-72, 6,169-metre Charlesland course.

So why not test yourself from the back tees and see if you can come out on top. Charlesland

Charlesland have an amazing offer at the moment, Two green fees & a buggy for just €60. Buy the voucher now and use it anytime until August 2017.

More info

While the front nine hugs the Irish Sea and is links-like, the back nine is beautiful parkland with several outstanding holes including the par-3 13th from a lofty elevated tee 229 metres down to the green – and at the back of the short 17th there are birdies of another kind with a family of swans in residence.

The 18th is typical of Hackett’s vision – a double dogleg and a massive 562 metres from the championship tees with a sting in the tail. The green is well guarded and you have to negotiate water on both sides of the fairway before you reach the haven of the welcoming clubhouse.
