Golf Course/
Royal Dublin

Located on Dublin's famous Bull Island Natural Reserve and only a few minutes from the capital’s centre, the Royal Dublin Golf Club is worlds apart from the nearby metropolis.

The island itself has been called a “gift from the sea”, having arisen unexpectedly from the Irish Sea after the construction of the Great North Wall in 1823.

Designed by the legendary Harry Colt, and updated about a decade ago by celebrated course architect Martin Hawtree, this championship course has adapted to challenge golfers with its 6,580-metre stretch. Hawtree made several significant changes. Aside from adding 360 metres to the length, he raised and introduced significant contouring to all of the greens. Founded in 1885, the Royal Dublin is also Ireland's second oldest golf club.

Few courses anywhere can match the Royal Dublin for its star-studded member’s list. From Christy O’Connor Sr and Jack Nicklaus to the everyday links lover, this course’s excellent location and its proven quality draws players both great and small to it sandy shores.

The Royal Dublin is considered one of the best links courses in the world and is always striving to improve its already impressive ranking and reputation. It is the permanent home of the John Lumsden Memorial Cup.
