I'm planning a trip to Ireland for the first time in April for roughly a month. Its primarily going to be for golfing, but I don't want to spend a lot of money. So my rough plan is to stay in hostels and go from place to place to golf. I've read that the southwest has the most prestigious courses but also by far the most expensive. I'm a guy that would prefer a course similar without the bragging rights and 1/3 of the cost. So I heard the North and Northwest golfing is a good place to go. My question is, would traveling through hostels, renting a car and setting tee times by myself be worth while comparing to spending a lot more money to plan through a Golf Travel company and stay in hotels. I'm not looking to spend more than 3-4k for the month on everything there everything included if that's possible.
