    Ballybunion Cashen Golf Club

    “Ballybunion Golf Course is a course on which many golf architects should live and play before they build courses. I consider it a true test of golf.“ Tom Watson
    A Breathtaking Challenge - The legendary Tom Watson described the glorious links at Ballybunion Golf Club as the best in the world. High praise indeed for this magnificent test of golf which meanders menacingly through massive dunes on the shores of the Atlantic. Ballybunion Golf Club actually boasts two separate courses. The Old Course (Par 71, 6,598 yards) and the Cashen Course (Par 72, 6,306 yards), which was created by golf architect, Robert Trent Jones Senior. The Cashen Golf Course, with its succession of formidable par fives and breathtaking beauty, amply qualifies as one of the world's masterpieces.

The Old Golf Course, consistently ranked as one of the world's top ten golf courses, features a graveyard by the first tee, which some say is a warning to golfers who breeze through the first five holes only to come face to face with the ever challenging 6th, the fiendish 8th, the daunting par four 11th and the devilishly tricky 15th.

    Cork Golf Club

    Ranked 37 in Ireland‘s Top 100 Golf Courses 2009, and 16 in Parkland Courses in Ireland‘s Top 100 courses - Ireland Golf Digest
    Scenically situated in Cork Harbour, the club has played host to major Amateur and Professional Championships over the years, including the Irish Open, Irish Professional Championships, Irish Close Championships and the National Finals. This championship parkland course is as graceful and mature as its age would suggest. Cork Golf Club was founded in 1888 and in 1927 the club were fortunate to secure the services of MacKenzie to re-design their existing course and under the critical eye of his assistant Jack Fleming, MacKenzie drew up a design which made full use of the dramatic terrain which is unique to Cork Golf Club. The large undulating greens are fast and true. Getting tee shots into position to approach them is a large part of the challenge - there are several long carries from the tees. Cork is truly one of the finest challenges in Ireland. The scenery and variety are an added bonus and they all combine to make Cork Golf Club a true golf discovery. Cork Golf Club is proud of its associations with the many famous and dedicated people who have contributed towards its success and its ranking among the famous golf clubs of the world.

    dooks-golf-club

    “Dooks is maybe the loveliest little golf club in the world. Certainly I have never been more totally surrounded by superb scenery than at Dook“ David Davies “The Guardian“
    A Truly Traditional Experience - Golf has been played in Dooks since 1889 and so is the oldest Golf Club in Kerry and one of the oldest in Ireland. Dooks Golf Club was a nine hole course until 1970, when the members voluntarily constructed a second nine. In 2002 Dooks Golf Club engaged the services of renowned links architect Mr. Martin Hawtree to enhance the layout of this visually stunning seaside gem. Hawtree truly lived up to his reputation and today, Dooks Golf Club, with its gentle rolling sandy fairways looking out at breathtaking views of Dingle and overlooked by the magnificent highest mountains in Ireland, the McGillycuddy Reeks, is a golf experience not to be missed. For a golfer who wants a real taste of traditional links golf at its very best, Dooks presents a convincing case.

    Dromoland Castle Golf Club

    The Course of Kings - What more dramatic a backdrop could be to this most challenging and enjoyable course than the world renowned five star Dromoland Castle. In 2003, the Dromoland golf course was redesigned to the highest standards by Joe Carr and Ron Kirby. It is situated on 400 unspoilt acres of lush wooded parkland enhanced by the gently flowing River Rine which becomes a feature for three of the many beautiful holes on the course. The natural terrain of the landscape at Dromoland Golf Club poses a considerable challenge to even the lowest handicap, with a profusion of yawning water hazards and concealed bunkers. Dromoland Castle is rapidly earning an enviable reputation both for quality of golf at Dromoland Golf Club and for the splendidly refurbished Castle Hotel. Its restaurant, “The Earl of Thomond“, is rated as one of Ireland‘s outstanding restaurants. The Clubhouse is equipped with leisure centre and swimming pool. “A challenging parkland course, amidst the peace and serenity of a beautiful location.“ - Gary

    Lahinch Golf Club (Castle Course)

    A Legendary Links - Frequently referred to as the St. Andrews of Ireland, Lahinch Golf Club looks out on the ever changing Atlantic Ocean, and is subject to all her mood swings. However, comparisons between the two famous courses go much further as their respective citizens share a common love and enthusiasm for the game of golf. The two courses at Lahinch Golf Club were actually first planned by officers of a Scottish Regiment, who considered this rugged and uncompromising countryside of Co. Clare perfect terrain for golf. The original layout for the course was the brainchild of Old Tom Morris, himself a four times British Open champion. Subsequent alterations were put in the capable hands of Scottish architect Dr. Alastair MacKenzie, who has also worked on Augusta, Pebble Beach and Cypress Point. The main championship links at Lahinch Golf Club (Par 72, 6,950 yards) is justifiably proud of the reputation it has gathered as a stern challenge to even the most gifted of golfers. The notorious Klondyke par five, 4th hole forces the golfer to play over an intimidating dune wall to a 'blind' green. Of the twin courses at Lahinch Golf Club, the Castle Course (Par 70, 5,653 yards) presents golfers with a slightly less formidable, though equally interesting prospect. “Lahinch will make the finest and most popular course that I, or I believe anyone else, ever constructed.“ Dr. Alastair Mackenzie

    Tralee Golf Club

    Built by Palmer - Created by Nature. A sensational Arnold Palmer designed links course alongside a beautiful rugged coastline where one can see the ocean from every hole and a seascape, which was described by Peter Dobereiner as being ‘in a different class even to California‘s Monterey Peninsula.‘ Exhilarating golf with cliff top greens and tees offer magnificent views of the Atlantic Ocean, dingle Peninsula and Kerryhead. Like the terrain the region is steeped in history with St Brendan having been born nearby in 484AD. The magnificent beach and surrounds featured prominently in the epic film Ryan‘s daughter on the gentler outward nine you will negotiate the 6th, 7th and 8th known locally as Palmer‘s loop. The back nine is a world of extraordinarily wild and massive dunes. The 12th hole is probably the most examining 2nd shot hole in golf where you are faced with a second shot to an elevated green with a deep ravine protecting the green. From the 14th tee there is a breathtaking view of Banna Strand which is renowned in song and story. The downhill par three 16th and the doglegged 17th are two more outstanding holes. On reaching the sanctuary of the clubhouse you can sit with your friends for a pint and scan the extraordinary golf course you have just played and to which you will want to return time and time again. “I have never come across a piece of land so ideally suited for the building of a golf course. I am happy we have one of the world‘s great links.“ Arnold Palmer

    Trump International Doonbeg Golf Club

    “Located 40 miles west of Shannon airport and midway between two Irish shrines, Lahinch and Ballybunion, Doonbeg is poised to become one itself.“ GOLF Magazine
    The last great piece of linksland on the Irish coast - Set along 1.5 miles of crescent-shaped beach and dunes on Irelands southwest coast, Doonbeg Golf Club designed by two-time British Open champion Greg Norman is a thinking man‘s course, with premium on accuracy over power. The majestic dunes, centuries old, reach almost 100 feet. Norman‘s philosophy of least disturbance has produced a course created by nature and laid out by man. 14 of Doonbeg‘s greens and 12 of its fairways were simply mowed. The par-72 layout of features a singles loop of nine holes out and nine back. Variations in wind speed and direction ensure the course plays differently almost every day. The Dongbeg Golf Course officially opened on July 9, 2002, with an exhibition match between Norman and Padraig Harrington.

    Waterville Golf Links

    Championship Links, beautiful yet pure - a mystical experience - Links land is a geological rarity. Less than one percent of all courses in Europe are championship links. Waterville Golf Links is honoured to be included among the very best of these in a prestigious Golf World survey. It is one of the oldest Irish Clubs, having been founded in 1889 with the arrival of the trans-Atlantic telegraph cable from the United States. After 80 years of play, the original nine hole course was redesigned by the famous Irish golf architect, Eddie Hackett and the late owner, John A. Mulcahy. Today Waterville is truly mystical. The course gradually introduces the player to its special tempo and rhythm and concludes with a symphony of links beauty. From Henry Cotton to Mark O‘Meara and Tiger Woods, all have praised its perfection.
