About the Founder

First of all, thank you for taking the time to visit our Website.

Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Joe Lyons and I have been a Golf Fanatic all my life. From the age of nine, when I first picked up a club, to this day, the game of golf has seduced, intrigued, beguiled but most of all frustrated me. The Game of Golf has been extraordinarily good to me and in many ways has been my redemption. Growing up in Ireland surrounded by some of the most fantastic courses on the planet nurtured my love of the game. Indeed the tales of all the great battles between our leading amateurs at venues such as Lahinch, Rosses Point, Royal Portrush and County Louth added to the legend of these Great Old Links. These tales were relayed through my Dad and his golfing buddies. They were all the more real when every now and then one of our local members took a scalp at a West or South of Ireland Championship. My Dad was the real inspiration behind my golf and without his encouragement, I would not have had such love and respect for the game. With the passion instilled, I went on to compete and win a number of championships across the UK and Ireland.

Visiting and competing at the best links venues on the planet, over three decades, has been a privilege. Competing has provided me with an in-depth knowledge of the best seaside golf destinations in Ireland, Scotland, and England. I should also advise that there are some exceptional parkland destinations here too. Having visited these venues and localities over such a lengthy period, I have a build up a vast number of friends and contacts in the Golf Industry.

After working as Social Care Worker for twenty years, I developed a Facebook group and website called Irish Golf Noticeboard, which is thriving to this day. I am instantly recognizable and traceable through this network, which offers clients an opportunity to evaluate my standing in Irish Golf.

After twenty years of caring for the more vulnerable in Society, I made a career move to the Golf Industry. I now care for clients and no stone is left unturned to ensure Golfers coming to experience our majestic links are cared for in a manner second to none. Having assisted golfers for several years now and surrounding myself with a team of Travel Professionals with over thirty years experience, it is Lyons Links mission to offer the most authentic and luxurious Golf Trips to the UK and Ireland. We provide trips to Ireland, Scotland, and England, however, if you require a specific trip or destination not listed on our site, please email me at joe@lyonslinks.com and I will endeavor to make your dream trip a reality.

Thank you once again for your time considering our services.
