At A Glance

Royal Dublin Golf Club is Ireland's second oldest golf club.

The island where the course is located is a UNESCO biosphere site.

During 1914-1918 the British Army used the land as a rifle range. Off the 6th fairway is a bunker formerly used for training purposes.

Full Course Review

Royal Dublin Golf Club has four standout holes:

The 5th hole requires an accurate tee shot as the fairway narrows and is flanked by sandhills.

Following two holes later, the 8th is a deceptively tough, risk and reward hole to an elevated, contoured green.

The often drivable par-4 16th at Royal Dublin Golf Club is guarded by seven pot bunkers!

The 18th hole, known as 'The Garden', is a challenging dogleg par 4 that threatens wayward drives and aggressive approach shots.
