Amadeus Annual Golf and Spa Event at Faithlegg House Hotel

Amadeus Annual Golf and Spa Event at Faithlegg House Hotel

The weather was very unkind to all the golfers who turned up for the annual Amadeus Golf and Spa event, held this year at Faithlegg House Hotel and Golf Resort, Co Waterford. Only the very brave or foolish completed the 18 holes in most inclement conditions and the lucky guests were the ones that enjoyed the spa.

Hospitality was the name of the game and Olwen McKinney, Siobhan Bosket and Stephen Brennan were all on hand to ensure that, once in out of the weather, all were well looked after.
