Lahinch Golf Club

Lahinch, Ireland

 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.
