A special thank you was included in the European Tour's closing speech on Sunday at the prize giving on the 18th tee for Lucas Herbert, winner of the DDF Irish Open 2021. It went to Head Greenkeeper Martin Lehane, his team and all the volunteers.
"Gentlemen you should be commended for your work, it is truly fantastic what you did for us this week. Comments from the players have been great and it's a testament of all your hard work, from the volunteer greenkeepers to the permanent staff. Well done to Martin Lehane and his team on presenting this course to the world this week."
Looks like all those 4.30am starts were worth it!
