What we say
Some incredible holes and just a couple of weak holes, that actually still feel ‘right’. Will be interesting to see how new owner Donald Trump alters ‘Doonbeg’.
Trump Ireland, formerly Doonbeg, is a natural links golf course built by Greg Norman. It is well worth a visit and the Great White Shark has done an incredible job on an extraordinary piece of twisted dune-land. However, he has received criticism from some quarters and some golfers have said it's the sort of golf course, like Marmite, you either love or hate; but given the fantastic conditioning of the golf course, the breathtaking vistas and the memorable layout, there would seem little to dislike...
It is a truly spectacular links course that delivers on every front. It begins with arguably the greatest opening hole of any. The tee stands on the side lawn of a lodge that was built from scratch but looks like it's been there for years. It's a par 5 that runs for the hills, with a green nestled in a natural amphitheatre of dunes. Every hole has a notable feature, whether it's the horseshoe green on the 2nd, the ravine on the 5th or the par-3 9th that hugs the beach. There's a bunker on the 11th that must be 12 feet deep and a trap on the 12th placed in the centre of the green. We've still not mentioned the par-3 14th signature hole and the brilliance of the 15th because the adventure just seems to go on and on.
