Golf Course/
The European Club

Nestled on the coast of County Wicklow, the world-renowned European Club sits isolated and preserved as a monument to both the inherent beauty of Ireland's coastline and to the talent of its owner and creator, Pat Ruddy.

Remarkably unpretentious considering its reputation, this 20-hole course is as challenging as it is ultimately rewarding. Carved dunes, notoriously unforgiving rough, blustering winds and cutting greens define the course. Fairways, unlike many found at other links courses, are quite generous and rewarding of good shots.

The 12th, 13th, and 15th holes play alongside the beach, and the Par-4 seventh hole is ranked among the top 100 holes in the world. Golf's most well-known and admired champions have played the course at the European Club, with Tiger Woods holding the current record of 67. The Club also hosted the Irish PGA Championship in 2007 and 2008.

The course's location was discovered by Ruddy, who had been surveying Ireland’s coastline in search for a classic links site. The amount of thought and consideration that went into the location of the course translates quite tangibly to the high calibre design and rhythm of the holes.

Few courses are packed with the abundance of excitement and adventure that is found at the European Club.
