Portmarnock Golf Club is situated on its own sandy peninsula, approximately two miles long and covering some 500 acres. It is a very natural links course that has a reputation for being one of the fairest courses in the UK, and consequently is a favourite amongst touring pros.
With water on three sides, the course is at the mercy of the wind. Laid out broadly in two loops of nine holes, you are invariably playing in different directions. Measuring over 7,300 yards from the back tees, it is a formidable test of golf. You will need your very best putting game because the greens at Portmarnock are lightning fast and true.
Portmarnock has hosted a number of important events including, on 12 occasions, the Irish Open and the Canada Cup. It is routinely ranked amongst the top 100 courses in the world.
