Golf Course/
Lahinch - Old

The beautiful links at Lahinch Golf Club in County Clare, Ireland have been testing and enthralling visiting golfers for over a century.

Way back in 1894, Old Tom Morris was commissioned to make full use of the natural terrain, especially the giant sand dunes at Lahinch. Old Tom believed that Lahinch was the finest natural course that he had seen.

Two of Morris’s creations were the famous Klondyke (4th) & Dell (5th) holes, these still remain today. They continue to be the most memorable talking points for first time visitors to Lahinch and are seen locally as fitting tributes to the great Scotsman.

More recently, Phil Mickelson has claimed Lahinch to be one of his all-time favourite links layouts – and he's not the only one. The course has received much attention and praise following its five-year restoration project, which ended in 2003.

The course ends with a lengthened par 5 that crosses through the fourth and fifth holes. There is no dull moment on this traditional links course, where the bunkers act as relentless traps and greens are not easily reached.

The Old Course's interesting setup and world-wide acclaim secure its spot as one of the finest links golf courses in the world.
