Golf Course Descriptions

Another of Ireland’s great west coast links where the sound of the Atlantic surf is a constant accompaniment to the golf round. Peter Dobereiner described it as “an undiscovered gem of a links in the North West, a course with some amazing holes”.
Co. Sligo, Links Course, Par 71. Length: 6,609 yards.
Founded in 1894, Rosses Point is one of the finest Links courses in Ireland or indeed the world. Peter Alliss described it as “a tremendous test for the highest quality player and great fun for the modern competitor”. The club has hosted most of Ireland’s major championships in its long and venerable history.
Royal Portrush Dunluce, Co. Antrim, (Founded 1881), Links Course, Par 72. Length: 6,641 yards.
The Dunluce Course, designed by the famous architect Harry S. Colt, is consistently rated among the world’s top courses.

Royal County Down, Co. Down, Links Course, Par 71. Length: 7,037 yards.
Laid out by Tom Morris in 1889 “where the Mountains of Mourne sweep down to the sea”. As well as being one of the world’s most beautiful courses, it is also one of the most demanding with several blind shots adding to the challenge. Royal County Down hosted the 2007 Walker Cup.
Portmarnock Old Golf Club, Co. Dublin, Links Course, Par 72. Length: 6,762 yards.
One of the outstanding and oldest golf links in Ireland or anywhere. Portmarnock has hosted the Irish Open Championship, The Walker Cup, The Canada Cup, The Dunlop Masters as well as many important national tournaments.
