Going green for St Patrick's Day

Stoke Park gets in on the action

Going green for St Patrick's Day

One of the world’s most iconic golf clubhouses has joined a select group of some of the globe’s most recognisable landmarks that have turned green this year to celebrate St Patrick’s Day. What on earth’s going on?

The clubhouse at Stoke Park Country Club, Spa & Hotel, the setting for the famous golf match in the classic 1964 James Bond film Goldfinger, was bathed in green to celebrate Ireland’s National Day.

Stuart Collier, director of golf at Stoke Park Country Club, Spa & Hotel, said: “We were delighted to be asked to take part in Tourism Ireland’s ‘Global Greening’ campaign and to join so many iconic landmarks in participating. It certainly caused quite a stir among our 800-plus members.”

Mine's a Guinness then Stuart, if you're asking?
