Designed by the legendary Harry Colt, and updated about a decade ago by celebrated course architect Martin Hawtree, this championship course has adapted to challenge golfers with its 6,580-metre stretch. Hawtree made several significant changes. Aside from adding 360 metres to the length, he raised and introduced significant contouring to all of the greens. Founded in 1885, the Royal Dublin is also Ireland’s second oldest golf club.The Royal Dublin is considered one of the best links courses in the world and is always striving to improve its already impressive ranking and reputation.
The links of The European Club was designed by Pat Ruddy a renowned golf-writer and golf course designer whose work will be found also at such highly regarded venues as Ballyliffin (Glashedy), Druids Glen, Rosapenna, Port Salon, St. Margaret’s, Donegal (Murvagh) and Montreal Island Golf Club. The links features 20-holes (two extra holes are in play most days) of exciting links golf through tumbling dunes with dramatic views of the Irish Sea from no fewer than sixteen of the holes! Some of the holes play along the beach!
Universally acknowledged as one of the truly great links courses, Portmarnock is situated to the north side of Dublin, about 12 miles from the city centre. Its quality and location have made it a splendid venue for some of the game’s great events, from the British Amateur Championship of 1949, to the Canada Cup in 1960, quite apart from the 1991 Walker Cup and 12 stagings of the Irish Open. Has been rated No 1 in Ireland by Golf Digest regularly.
