Golf Course/
Doonbeg

Chosen for his “least disturbance philosophy,” the Doonbeg Golf Course site on the grounds of this five star resort was designed by two-time British Open Champion Greg Norman. In fact, the course opened on July 9, 2002, when Norman defeated Padraig Harrington 2 to 1 in an exhibition match.

Spanning 1.5 miles of crescent shaped beach and century-old sand dunes, the course offers views across the Atlantic from the green, the fairway, or tee of 16 of the 18 holes.

The Par-72 layout features a single loop of nine holes out and nine back, playing 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.

Wind direction and speed determines consistent variation in play. 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.

The average time for a round of golf at Doonbeg is four hours and thirty minutes.
