Originally identified by the Black Watch Regiment as the preferred site for their course in the 1890′s, it was overlooked in favor of Lahinch due to superior railroad access. Greg Norman has designed a magnificent links course, carved out of a landscape of grass covered dunes which border the Atlantic Ocean. Each of the holes offers wonderful panoramas of the ocean and the Irish countryside.

    Originally designed by Old Tom Morris and later modified by Dr. Alister MacKenzie and most recently Martin Hawtree, the course has a vast array of grass covered knolls and sweeping contours. Optimal use is made of the many natural sand dunes, notably at the par three 5th hole, “The Dell”, where the green is completely hidden from the tee. Lahinch is the permanent home to the South of Ireland Amateur Championship.

    Ireland’s most famous course and consistently rated amongst the world’s finest. Perched on a sandy cliff top, it makes its way through dunes and valleys with dramatic changes in elevation. The greens are often perched on mounds or carefully sheltered between sand dunes.

    Stay arrangement on your preference.

  • Day 5: Play at Tralee:

    This is the first Arnold Palmer designed course in Europe. Opened in 1984, this traditional links course has matured into a fine test of golf. The course works into the dunes and brings the exposed coastline into play, offering wonderful views from Barrow out to Fenit Island and the Atlantic.

  • Day 6: Play at Old Head:

    The course was opened for play in 1997, and its success story has gone from strength to strength. It is now one of the most talked-about courses in the world.
