Founded in 1893 by a Scottish Regiment of British Army officers, this course is a perfect example of a true Irish links with its towering sand dunes, rolling fairways and greens.

This is just a great walk for a Golf Course. A few tricky holes but what you see is what you get. Incredible

Not the easiest but fun. A number of blind shots and the rough is a place to avoid big time. From the men's tees, there are several holes with a fair amount of carty to get over the rough and to the fairway. So, some...More

Tough but fair course if you keep it in play. Some great views from this course. Big elevation changes and a premium on accuracy over distance. We played 7 courses on our trip and I had this ranked 2nd.

Beautiful Course and we really lucked out with great weather. Bring/buy lots of balls as the fescue is very hungry. Taking a caddie is a MUST both for the experience and the great help that you'll receive.
