Lahinch founded in 1892 is one of the oldest golf clubs in Ireland and the Old Course is one of the most respected links courses in the world. It sits right on the Atlantic coastline on the South West Coast of Ireland in county Clare. Lahinch Golf Club has two courses the Castle Course and the Old Course. The Old Course is frequently referred to as the ‘Saint Andrews of Ireland’ as it looks out on the ever-changing Atlantic Ocean. It is a classic links course with rolling dunes and fairways and typical MacKenzie greens. There isn’t a mundane shot on the entire golf course, and your jaw will often drop at the views. Undulating fairways, heavily guarded greens and blind shots are among Lahinch’s challenges. “Lahinch will make the finest and most popular course that I, or I believe anyone else, ever constructed.” Dr. Alastair Mackenzie

Dromoland Golf Club
Dromoland Golf Club was founded in 1961 and is located in Newmarket-on-Fergus 6 miles Southeast of Ennis and 8 miles from Shannon International Airport. The Club is situated within the Dromoland Castle Estate and is a must play golf club on the west coast of Ireland. The golf course is a wonderful parkland challenge that meanders through the estate amongst fine trees and around many natural lakes. 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.” A challenging parkland course, amidst the peace and serenity of a beautiful location.” – Gary Player

Doonbeg Golf Club
Doonbeg Golf Club founded in 2002 is situated about 4 miles North of Doonbeg village and only 45 minutes drive from Shannon International Airport. 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. The par-72 layout features a single loop of nine holes out and nine back, playing 6,885 yards from the back tees. The speed and direction of the wind causes consistent variation in play – to allow for a range of conditions and abilities, most holes feature five or more tee locations. The most natural routing within the existing dunes resulted in an uncommon combination of five par 3’s and five par 5’s. With such unique attributes and stunning views of the Atlantic from 16 holes, it’s clear you’ll never play another course like it.
