September 7, 2010

When one mentions golf, especially in the Newry and Mourne District the name of Pat Trainor, Warrenpoint is never far away from the conversation. Pat has been synonymous with golf development in the area as a player, team captain, coach, teacher and now his P&B Golf, 3 Springfield Road, Warrenpoint is at the forefront in golf aid techniques such as The Dream Swing and Six Ways to Better Golf presented by Michael Bannon.

Pat is father of back to back Ulster PGA winner Barrie who is also a member of the Europro Tour. It is the interest from others regarding the wellbeing and fortunes of how his son is doing that has prompted Pat to embark on his latest venture, the provision of a glossy Monthly golf magazine called The 19th Lounge

The free to take home Magazine will follow the 12 Irish Golfers on the main European Tour as well as those on the Challenge, Europro and our own Irish PGA tour.The top amateurs will also be featured as will the local results from around the clubs in Ulster.

If the quality and content of the first issue currently in circulation is anything to go by then the future of The 19th Lounge is already assured as there was something that every one connected or interested in golf could relate to.

As for the name of his publication Pat quips “sure it is the place where the best golf is played” Judging by the first issue it will form the part and bring about many a conversation in the 19 th Lounge throughout the golf courses of Ulster and beyond.
