Ardglass

Castle Pl
Co Down, , BT30 7TP GB
Par 70, yardage 6,065. Ardglass is a spectacular 18-hole seaside course with championship standard greens. The first five holes meander along cliff tops, with spectacular views across the Irish sea from every hole. With the first five holes along the Irish Sea and cliffs tight to the left, the holes should be treated with respect. Anything resembling a hook will meet disaster. The second hole is a daunting par-three where the tee shot must carry a cliff and a canyon, and that's the easy part of the hole. While on this tee box, a superb view of the mountains of Mourne should not be missed.

Carne Links

Par 72, yardage 6,669. The towering sand dunes of the Atlantic coast of Mayo are the unique setting for this championship links course. Carne Links (Belmullet) was featured in the Top Ten of new developments in the British Isles by Golf World in November 1994. The ubiquitous Atlantic wind makes the second nine a real challenge on the 11th, 14th and 17th in particular - a gem of a links well worthy of a visit despite its geographical isolation. Carne was the last links course to be designed by the late Eddie Hackett and is now believed by many who have played here to be his greatest challenge. Carne lies in the splendid sand dunes overlooking Blacksod Bay, the legendary Inis Geidhe and Inis Gluaire islands and dramatic Achill.

Connemara Championship Golf Links

Par 72, yardage 7,229. The par 72 is rarely achieved on this most challenging Atlantic links. This could be influenced by the invigorating air and breathtaking scenery, but more probably due to the vastness of the last six holes. Greens set high in the hillside on the 14th and 15th can be unnerving, particularly after playing the most testing short 13th! Take time, however, to marvel at the splendid scenic backdrop of the Twelve Bens, etched against the skyline, or Ballyconneely Bay, dusted with pure, white sand. James W. Finnegan wrote: "The Course is a perfect reflection of the austere beauty that is the world of Connemara".

Enniscrone Golf Club

Enniscrone, Co. Sligo, Ireland
Par 72, yardage 6,720. Designed by Eddie Hackett, Enniscrone is a traditional championship links course on the shores of Killala Bay, with inspiring views in almost every direction. It is as traditional a links course as they come, featuring tight fairways, high dunes, deep bunkers and superb greens. As with any great links course, you will need the use of all the clubs in the bag, so don't think you'll get it easy - there are no shortcuts round here. The course was founded back in 1918 and was extended to 18 holes in 1974 by Hackett. As you walk on the fast draining fairway turf, where you never get less than a perfect lie, you experience a feeling of lightness that makes two rounds seem more like one.

Harry Colt's original design has barely been touched, although Donald Steel did make some slight renovations in 1988.

Royal County Down

36 Golf Links Rd
Co Down, , BT33 0AN GB
Par 71, yardage 7,037. Old Tom Morris, the man who sculpted the original outline of the Old Course at St. Andrews, was paid just four guineas to produce this links masterpiece in 1889. It was improved upon in 1908 by Harry Vardon, though it was not altered dramatically. This is one of the world's greatest links courses. It has all the classic elements: imposing sand dunes; tight, rolling fairways; small undulating greens and countless blind shots. An American golf magazine was so enamored by the experience of a round at Royal County Down, that it rated it third best in the world behind Muirfield and Pebble Beach. This course is not available to play Wednesday or Saturday.

Royal Portrush - Dunluce Links

Dunluce Rd
Coleraine, , GB
Par 72, yardage 6,818. Royal Portrush has a special place in the history of Irish golf, since it is the only golf course outside Great Britain to host the Open Championship (in 1951 when Max Faulkner was victorious). In 2003, it hosted the Ladies' British Open Amateur Stroke Play Championship and in July each year it hosts the North of Ireland Amateur Open Championship. Its Dunluce Links is a wonderful test of links golf but can also be extremely ferocious. It was once famously described as a "spectacular monster". If you don't believe it, just look at some of the hole names: 'Purgatory', 'Giant's Cave', 'Himalayas' and 'Calamity Corner'.
