We’re all here for Bill Murray’s golfing tour around Ireland

We’re all here for Bill Murray’s golfing tour around Ireland

The legendary Groundhog Day actor is visiting Ireland this week to film a new season of golf series The Links Life, and he's been snapped thoroughly enjoying himself. You love to see it.

He’s on our shores to hack his way through courses such as Druids Glen, Rosapenna, and Ballybunion for a YouTube series called The Links Life. And being the gent that he is, Tourism Ireland has reportedly confirmed that Murray and his family paid for the cost of the trip, and it is contributing towards the costs of two film crew who are filming him for the series.

And it’s not totally off base, the actor a history of being involved in golf: he worked as a caddy when he was in high school and launched the William Murray Golf line of sportswear in 2016. And remember when he starred in the golf comedy movie Caddyshack? He will also play the O’Meara course at Carton House, Carne Golf Links, Portsalon, the new St Patrick’s Links course at Rosapenna, Cruit Island, Narin and Portnoo, Enniscrone, Connemara, Galway Bay Golf Resort, and Ballybunion.

The 70-year-old can be seen well and truly mixing with the locals (hat and all), and just generally enjoying the Irish air. If ever Ireland needed someone to bat – or putt – for it, it’s nice to be left in the actor’s capable hands.

After his whistle-stop tour, he’ll next be seen in the next Wes Anderson film and will reprise his role as Peter Venkman for Ghostbusters: Afterlife.

Murray is the latest Hollywood star to arrive in Ireland in recent weeks to shoot various projects.

Black Widow star Florence Pugh is currently in the Irish Midlands making Netflix film The Wonder,  an adaptation of Emma Donoghue’s book of the same name, while the cast of Disenchanted recently departed Ireland after wrapping production on the Disney sequel.
