Southwest Ireland perhaps can’t be beaten. Each course finds its way onto World Top 100 lists and they all showcase the beauty of Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way seamlessly. Most memorable is probably the links at Old Head, where the coastal topography creates as dramatic a setting for golf as you will find anywhere in the world.
Old HeadDangling off of Ireland's southern coast atop a promontory that towers hundreds of feet above the Atlantic, the Links of Old Head occupies perhaps the most spectacular setting for golf on the planet. Enough said.
LahinchThe 2019 Irish Open host shares the same stretch of County Clare's coastline with the Cliffs of Moher so designer Alistair MacKenzie had a great canvas on which to work. So good in fact, that after completion MacKenzie, who worked on the likes of Cypress Point and Royal Melbourne, called Lahinch the finest course that he or anyone else ever constructed.
BallybunionTom Watson’s favorite golf course is regularly ranked as Ireland’s best course and it's not hard to see why. The design's great variety of holes are carved between massive sand dunes and the result is a visually challenging but stunning test.
WatervilleLocated at the end of the Ring of Kerry, Waterville effortlessly encapsulates the beauty and serenity of County Kerry's Macgillycuddy's Reeks Mountains and Atlantic shoreline. Don't be fooled though, as the course is as challenging as they come. In fact, member Tiger Woods has been known to fine-tune his game there in advance of the Open Championship.
TraleeTralee's layout plays across two distinctly different nines. The front is more subdued, although it has a fun mix of holes with the standout par 3 third playing towards castle ruins. The back, though, is pure magic and may be Ireland's best nine holes. With elevated views across miles of Atlantic coastline, the setting inspired designer Arnold Palmer to proclaim: “I designed the front 9 and god designed the back."
DoonbegThe seaside village of Doonbeg is home to Greg Norman's only course in the British Isles and upon seeing the property's mountainous dunes and location alongside Doughmore Bay, Norman proclaimed he was the luckiest designer in the world. Situated between the likes of Lahinch and Ballybunion, and voted among Golf Digest’s World Top 100, the Shark's work should not be missed.
