Lahinch Golf Club
The “St. Andrews” of Ireland is a quirky masterpiece
Look at Lahinch from above. Hole are entangled like spaghetti. Zoom in. Holes play through, over and around sizable dunes. The course is hemmed in by Inagh River, Atlantic Ocean and the town of Lahinch itself. This is wild, classic links golf. Yes, it’s quirky in ways unlike any modern course and that’s partly why its so interesting. But that’s not why you should play Lahinch. Play it because it’s and exhilaratingly fun course, and one of the world’s undeniably great links.
W hy is Lahinch on the top 100 list? It’s hard to articulate, but it should be there. Like the Old Course at St. Andrews, Lahinch takes time to appreciate…Despite all its shortcomings, Lahinch has an intangible quality that is unmistakably Irish. It is a cult course in the same vein as a Cruden Bay, North Berwick or Prestwick. Love it or hate it, but play Lahinch once and you will always remember it.Playing the Top 100
