At A Glance

One of the premier links courses in the world, the golf course is built on classic links land surrounded by the sea and impressive sand dunes. The golf club recently completed a clubhouse upgrade and has a distinctive Irish American feel. Situated in South West Ireland, this Eddie Hackett and Tom Fazio designed was once captained by Payne Stewart.
