If you love golfing then you must play on this course, right in the middle of playing I found a patch of yellow wild daisies and decided to sit for a break. How fun.

No wonder this course is ranked so highly in all ratings worldwide. The quality of this links cannot be created elsewhere as it is a true unique experience. Playing off the Green markers can make it more enjoyable when the wind gets up. The sound of the Atlantic and the views of the bay and nearby Cliffs Of Moher creates... More

Lahinch is so unique it is one of the best in Ireland for me. It isn't pretentious, just a great golf course. Very different and unlike anything else you will play. A bucket list course for anyone.

Had a fabulous day on the links at Lahinch, which is one of the top-rated courses in the world. It's a beautiful old golf course with amazing vistas and unique golf shots. It was a very windy day, which made for some interesting golf. I hit enough good shots to make me want to come back and play again. Wish... More

I've been very fortunate to have played numerous courses around the world, and Lahinch just might top my list. Holes 3-12 could possibly the greatest stretch of holes in the entire world. A mix of challenging, interesting, and flat out perfect golf holes. I played on a day when the sun was shining but the wind was howling! (50+Mph). Hole... More

This was the best golf of my lifetime - not just because of the course, but because of the caddy. I am a 50 year old occasional golfer, tagging along on a golf trip with a bunch serios golfers. I want to enjoy the experience, and not drag them down. The solution, a caddy named Tom. He was the most... More

What struck our group of 12 driving up to Lahinch 2 hours after landing in Shannon from New York was the familiarity. With one side of the course set against one of the main roads in town, we were a bit miffed as to the claims of a world class course. The unassuming element of Lahinch is part of what... More

It's true links challenge with some quirkiness thrown in for good measure ensures that visitors never forget their time with us. We look forward to welcoming you and your colleagues... More

This was a very challenging course. It was so much fun for a linx course, I played it twice! Very challenging, you may want a caddie, so you know where you are going.I would highly recommend this course to anybody loves this sport.
