Probably the best kept secret in Ireland, The Island GC is a true links and a cult favorite of “in the know” golfers and lovers of clubs off the beaten track. Surrounded on three sides by the sea, The Island a true links course with an easier front nine and demanding back nine. The 1st, 3rd and 7th are probably the best holes on the outward nine but the most spectacular are to be found on the inward half. The 12th needs an excellent drive while the 13th is a superb par 3 of 210 yards, requiring a long iron or wood shot to reach a naturally well protected green. The par 4, 18th offers an excellent challenge with imposing sandhills on both sides.
