Southwest Ireland Golf Design
From Western Kerry to Southern Cork, this region has won the hearts of legends and designers alike for good reason. Eddie Hackett – considered by many in Ireland to be ‘the father of golf course design’ – architected the vast Waterville Golf Links and the challenging courses at Ring of Kerry. Furthermore, Adare Club and the world famous Ballybunion Club were beautifully devised by Robert Trent Sr.
The golf courses in Southern Ireland vary, and golfers are certainly well-catered for. Generous parkways like Fota Island sweep through mature woodland and evoke a feeling that the very land itself was made just to hold a golf course. At courses like Dingle, there are true traditional links layouts where rolling hills give way to the sea and breathtaking views unravel at every turn. There really is something for everybody here.
