There are so many exceptional links layouts in Ireland the clubs are like good wine. You’ll recognize more than a few but there are always new ones to discover. We are pleased to present such a find in “The Links & Luxury of West Ireland 2016” which promises an extraordinary experience that belies its cost.

World #40 Lahinch is certainly no stranger, the Old Tom Morris original re-designed by the great Dr. Alister MacKenzie in 1927 and modernized in 1999 by Martin Hawtree. Doonbeg was recently acquired by Trump Golf whose CEO has demonstrated his eye for elite class golf.

Some of the grandest dunes systems on earth are found along Ireland’s west coast which you’ll continue to see in County Mayo. Here you’ll get to play Enniscrone, one of famous Irish architect Eddie Hackett’s most respected designs. Says designer Donald Steele, “I challenge anybody to name holes, including those at Ballybunion, where the dunes are more of a feature than at Enniscrone.” It’s a tall order but Carne Golf Links, another Hackett design which many consider to be his finest, might beg to differ. The man was beyond compare at finding natural golf holes on natural golf land which he did in spectacular fashion on the Belmullet Peninsula.

This PerryGolf vacation is all the more enjoyable because of its outstanding accommodations.The Lodge at Doonbeg and theMount Falcon Estate Hotel represent the highest levels of luxury and service impressively presented in delightfully different themes.

Doonbeg Golf Course

Day 3

Today play Doonbeg (tbc). The newest addition to Ireland's collection of storied links courses having opened in 2002. The course is located between Lahinch and Ballybunion on the west coast. Originally identified by the Black Watch Regiment as the preferred site for their course in the 1890's, it was overlooked in favor of Lahinch due to superior railroad access. Greg Norman has designed a magnificent links course, carved out of a landscape of grass covered dunes which border the Atlantic Ocean. Each of the holes offers wonderful panoramas of the ocean and the Irish countryside.

Day 4

Play Lahinch (tbc). Originally designed by Old Tom Morris and later modified by Dr. Alister MacKenzie and most recently Martin Hawtree, the course has a vast array of grass covered knolls and sweeping contours. Optimal use is made of the many natural sand dunes, notably at the par three 5th hole, "The Dell", where the green is completely hidden from the tee. Lahinch is the permanent home to the South of Ireland Amateur Championship.

Day 6

Golf today on the Carne Golf Links (tbc) at Belmullet. Carne was the last links course to be designed by the late Eddie Hackett and is now believed by many who have played there to be his greatest challenge. Carne lies in splendid isolation overlooking Blacksod Bay, affording little disturbance to the natural and unspoilt environment that surrounds it. Please note a very limited supply of golf carts are available for hire. Certain restrictions may apply, please advise your Golf Travel Expert.
