Doonbeg Golf Club, Co Claire
The par-72 layout features a single loop of nine holes out and nine back and plays 6,885 yards from the back tees. The most natural routing within the existing dunes resulted in an uncommon combination of five par-3s and five par-5s. Variations in wind speed and direction ensure the course plays differently almost every day; for example, the average golfer will play from a sand wedge to a 5-iron on the 111-yard 14th. To allow for a range of conditions and abilities, most holes feature five or more tee locations. Like many traditional Irish links, Doonbeg Golf Club is a private club with some public play. There also is a local club component for Doonbeg-area residents. The course officially opened on July 9, 2002, when Greg Norman defeated Irish Ryder Cup star Padraig Harrington 2 and 1 in an exhibition match.
