Ireland… The “Emerald Isle”. With over 300 golf courses, is it any wonder that Ireland is emerald green? World renowned courses dot the map of this remarkable country, but it is the informal and friendly manner in which the game is played that makes Irish golf a unique experience.
The 2006 Ryder Cup was played on the K-Club Palmer Course, just outside of Dublin. Ireland’s largest city, Dublin, includes such nearby gems as The Island Golf Club and Portmarnock. Northern Ireland boasts a plethora of great courses, including Royal County Down and Portstewart. The site of Ireland’s only Open Championship, Royal Portrush, was the childhood home of US Open winner Graeme McDowell and a must play on any golfer’s “bucket list.”
Perhaps most famous is Ireland’s Southwest. Among wonderful Irish towns and farming villages are the legendary golf courses of Doonbeg, Ballybunion Old, Waterville Golf Links, The Old Head and Tralee Golf Club. Make your base in Killarney, and your evenings will be full of wonderful music in the many pubs that dot the landscape.
