Ireland – East – European Club – 7149 yds – Par 71
The links of the European Club has developed into one of Ireland’s finest links golf courses in a relatively short period of time. There is usually one reason and one reason only for this rapid progression to “must play” status and that reason is quality, a trait that is inherent at the European Club.
The combination of rugged dunes, deep bunkers, sea breezes and large undulating greens, calls on the golfer to display strength of character, an ability to think and shot making skills.
The design of the European Club has attempted to modernize the traditional values of links golf and this has been achieved with magnificent results. Blind shots, deemed by many as an archaic feature of links golf, have largely been banished from the agenda at the European Club, with 14 holes offering a complete tee to green vista and the remaining holes providing a clearly visible landing area. Fast running fairways, greens that invite the pitch and run approach and acres of tall, waving grasses and golden flowered gorse are of course, the very essence of links golf and all remain in abundance at the European Club.
