In April of 2009, six time European Tour winner and 2006 Ryder Cup co-captain Anders Forsbrand played host to the first ever FCA Golf Camp outside of the United States in partnership with Operation Mobilization of Ireland. Tom and Breda Reid, owners of the beautiful Glasson Hotel and Golf Club, welcomed the two organizations and over fifty campers to their championship facility.
The Glasson Hotel and Golf Club is a 4 star golf hotel located close to Athlone in Westmeath Ireland. Situated just outside the quaint village of Glasson (Goldsmiths ‘village of the roses’), and nestled on the tranquil shores of Lough Ree, Glasson is the ideal host for the Anders Forsbrand Junior Golf Camp. Glasson Hotel and Golf Club has justifiably earned an International reputation as one of the most challenging and scenic golf courses in Ireland. Designed by Ryder Cup star, Christy O’Connor Jnr., the enjoyment of the golfer has always been the undertaking. No matter what your level of golf expertise, the course is cleverly crafted, so you can tee off for a relaxing round while soaking up the Glasson atmosphere, or test your game to championship level.
The course plays up to 7,215 yards from the back of the championship tees. Since it’s inception in 1993, Glasson Golf course has hosted a range of regional & international championship finals. Glasson was the proud host to the European Challenge Tour in August 2007 & 2008, highlighting the caliber of the course.
If you are ever in Westmeath we encourage you to stop in and see Tom & Breda! Say hi to them from the FCA Staff and enjoy their spectacular property.
