William Kirby, GM Mount Juliet added “Mount Juliet is delighted to host the Kilkenny Chamber Inter Company Golf Challenge again this year. The Jack Nicklaus designed Mount Juliet course, currently ranked the No. 1 Parkland Course in Ireland by Backspin Magazine. Mount Juliet has been the venue for the Irish Open in ’93, ’94 and 1995. Also two WGC Amex events were held here in 2002 and 2004. We hope the above has set the scene for the Golf Day here at Mount Juliet and we look forward to seeing you on the 12th June at 2.30pm.”

Team work is very important in business today and what better way to enhance team relationships or invite your clients to enjoy the wonderful surroundings of Mount Juliet. It also offers an opportunity to bring additional guests to the BBQ”.
