Lahinch Golf Club
Golf at Lahinch dates back to 1892, however, it was Old Tom Morris in 1894 that laid out the original 18 holes and then Alister MacKenzie redesigned in 1926. More recently in 1999, it was Martin Hawtree’s modernization of the Old Course that we enjoy today. Not a bad trio of world-renowned golf course architects, and it was Old Tom that said Lahinch was “the finest natural course he had ever seen”.
Lahinch is made up of two magnificent courses, the Old Course and Castle Course. The Championship Old Course weaves through spectacular dunes with undulating fairways, greens and run-off areas providing for a great test of golf.
The variety of holes is something you will find at few courses across the world, each offering a totally unique test. The impressive layout is set on a peninsula that provides great views of the Atlantic Ocean and means the wind is a huge factor for most rounds.
The Castle Course offers a slightly less dramatic test, set on much flatter ground, this course is perfect for those who are looking for an easier challenge.
Facilities at Lahinch are top class with a 5-acre short-game area plus a new indoor performance centre for a premium game improvement experience and custom club fitting.
