Portmarnock Golf Club, Co Dublin
Universally acknowledged as one of the truly great links courses, Portmarnock is situated to the north side of Dublin, about 12 miles from the city centre. Its quality and location have made it a splendid venue for some of the game’s great events, including the British Amateur Championship of 1949 and The Irish Open. Founded in 1894, the championship course offers a classic, traditional challenge. There are no tricks or nasty surprises, only an honest, albeit searching test of shot-making skills. Invariably rated as Ireland’s best course, Portmarnock takes justifiable pride in its 27 holes, which are maintained to the highest standards. Within the curve of the coastline formed by Howth peninsula, it offers stunning views of Ireland’s Eye and Lambay Island, rising sharply from deep waters. But above all, there is the charm of its delightful turf, the wildness, the solitude of the sand hills and the sea, and the ever-present challenge of the wind.
