Lahinch Golf Club Old Course
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.
Ballybunion Golf Club Old Course
Ballybunion Old Course is a links course founded in 1893. It is situated on Sandhill road just south of the seaside town of Ballybunion in North Kerry. Ballybunion Old is now a legend, receiving almost as many visitors as St Andrews Golf Club in Scotland. The Old Course, consistently ranked as one of the world's top ten 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. The attractions of Ballybunion are found entirely on the links, as it is the way the links fit so superbly into what nature has provided.
Killarney Golf & Fishing Club Killeen Course
Killarney Killeen is one of three parkland courses at Killarney Golf & Fishing Club, located 3 miles west of Killarney Town. It is nestled amidst the splendour of the famous Killarney lakes with the spectacular backdrop of the Macgillycuddy Reeks, the highest mountain range in Ireland. The Killeen Course is the jewel in the crown, offering spectacular lakeside scenery but is the most challenging of the three. It is consistently rated amongst the world's top courses. At 6564 metres it will challenge long hitters with accuracy being vital as there is water on virtually every hole.Killeen was the host venue of the 2010 and 2011 Irish Open with England's Ross Fisher and Simon Dyson emerging the respective winners.
Tralee Golf Club
Tralee Golf Club founded in 1980 is located 8 miles Northwest of Tralee town on the Barrow Peninsula. A sensational Arnold Palmer designed links course alongside a beautiful rugged coastline where one can see the ocean from every hole and a seascape. It lies on the Southwest coast of Ireland at the gateway to the Dingle and Fenit Peninsulas and is one of the world's most scenic and spectacular true links golf courses. 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.
Waterville Golf Links
Waterville Golf Club founded in 1889 is located on the Ring of Kerry, approximately 1 mile from the village of Waterville and 50 miles from Killarney. Links land is a geological rarity, less than one percent of all the courses in Ireland and the British Isles are championship links, Waterville is one of these. 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. Each hole at Waterville is a wonderful experience, with the 2nd and 3rd holes, both par fours, being particularly impressive. The par three, 17th is probably Waterville's feature hole. Waterville is one of the finest links golf courses in the world, never mind Ireland.
