At A Glance

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 sixth fairway is a bunker formerly used for training purposes.

Full Course Review

The 5th hole requires an accurate tee shot to a narrow fairway flanked by sandhills.

The 8th is a deceptively tough hole with risk and reward from the tee box to an elevated, contoured green.

The often drivable par-4 16th is guarded by seven pot bunkers.

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