East Coast & Dublin

The east coast of Ireland and indeed Dublin boasts some of the country’s finest links and parkland courses. In Dublin alone, you have three world-renowned courses (Portmarnock Golf Club, The Royal Dublin Golf Club and The Island) all within a 20-minute drive of one another.

To the south of Dublin, you will find the famous Pat Ruddy designed European Club where Tiger Woods holds the course record, shooting a spectacular 67. The European Club was also the venue for two of Padraig Harrington's Irish PGA victories in 2007 and 2008. Both coming mere weeks before going on to win The Open Championship at Carnoustie in 2007 and Royal Birkdale in 2008.

Just north you will find County Louth Golf Club just outside the town of Drogheda in Co. Louth. County Louth Golf Club or Baltray as it is sometimes known hosts the annual East of Ireland Amateur Championship. The East of Ireland is one of the major amateur events on the island of Ireland.

To the west lies the famous K Club, host to the 2006 Ryder Cup as well as several European Opens and Irish Opens. The 2006 European Ryder Cup team managed to emerge victorious by a then record-equaling margin of victory. Swedish rookie Henrik Stenson sank the winning putt sparking the kind of celebrations that can only take place in Ireland.
