I have to say that I love playing this particular golf links. The views of the Atlantic and surrounding countryside and coast are absolutely beautiful.
Although I also enjoy links golf that takes you through tight fairways, winding through the sand dunes, Connemara offers quite a different and more relaxed experience.
Holes on the front nine are quite open, with the wind being the most severe element that you will have to contend with.
The back nine is much more interesting, with the long par three thirteenth that tees off over a valley to an elevated green. Depending on wind direction, driver will be the club of choice for most golfers on this hole. The next hole (a par 5) offers absolutely fabulous views of the Atlantic Ocean from another elevated tee.
The well appointed modern clubhouse has an excellent bar-food menu and excellent views of the surrounding area.
This course is well worth including on an itinerary of golf links on Ireland's west coast and will continue to be a favourite venue for our Dublin based golf group.
