The European Club is legendary architect Pat Ruddy’s creation from scratch and he and his family have overseen the entire operation since inception. Opened for play in 1993, this is a unique experience, a 20-hole links set amongst rugged dunes. It is a modern take on the classic links style and has earned its reputation as a top 100 course in the world.
The conditioning at The European Club is immaculate, with perhaps the best greens in Ireland. At the drop of a hat the course could be ready to host any major championship.
This is an absolute must-play gem of a golf course and quite likely one of the last links courses to be built in Ireland.
