Golf Course/
Connemara Golf Links

Connemara Golf Links blends the history of the game, the stunning natural and unique beauty of the western Irish landscape and the the skills of a great architect to create a memorable golfing experience.

Nestled between the scenic splendour of the 12 Bens mountain range and the rugged Atlantic ocean, this 7,229-yard course is a test from start to finish. The course opens with a testing dog leg hole and requires an increasing amount of attention throughout each round.

The back nine, in particular, have been acknowledged as the equal to any in the world. Tom Watson confirmed the greatness of the back nine, referring to these holes and their surrounding greens as "spectacular." World-renowned golf writer and commentator Peter Alliss said "if there were a course like this on the west coast of England, it would surely host the British Open."

A testament to the skill of its designer, Eddie Hackett deftly enhanced the rugged environment to create this dramatic championship course.

Situated between the Twelve Bens mountain range and the Atlantic Ocean, the 18 holes are every bit as challenging as they are beautiful, a point driven home by the twisting dog leg on the breathtaking 1st hole. There's also a newer course, which offers a game along the Atlantic for an exhilarating nine holes.
