At A Glance

Tom Doak recommends golf architecture students pay special attention to the routing at Portmarnock Golf Club.

The first 9 was laid out in 1894 with Mungo Park overseeing work. It was extended to 18 holes two years later in 1896. Fred Hawtree added the third set of 9 in 1971. The 3 Nines are known as the Yellow, Blue and Red. The Blue and Red make up the Championship Course.

For the 2003 Irish Open, Martin Hawtree introduced the par 3 12th, refined the greens on 2, 3, 4, 8, 9 and 14. Tees were added on 12, 15 and 18.

The Portmarnock Golf Club is a male only members club but women are welcome and able to use all of the facilities on hand.
