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.

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.
