Lahinch Golf Club
The first round at Lahinch Golf Club took place in 1892 and has since been regarded as one of the very best clubs in the world. Lahinch is made up of two magnificent courses, the Old Course and Castle Course. Both of these layouts provide a tremendous test of golf, set on a spectacular piece of property that Old Tom Morris described as “the finest natural course he had ever seen”.
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 a few courses across the world, each offering a 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 test.
Golf courses at Lahinch Golf Club
Lahinch Old Course
This magnificent course is laid out like a true links course, weaving in and out of gigantic sand dunes to create plenty of blind shots. Lahinch is an Irish gem and a truly enchanting place to play golf - with Liscannor Bay and stunning Clare countryside creating the perfect backdrop for your round of golf.
Situated on the opposite side of the road from the Old Course, the Castle Course, although a less formidable challenge, still presents its own brand of toughness with cleverly positioned bunkers and water hazards to trap the unsuspecting golfer.
