Portmarnock Hotel & Golf Links (Championship)

Last Updated:

What we say

The golf course really hots up on the back nine and, as you'd expect from a golf course designed by Germany's greatest golfer, Bernhard Langer, golf course management is critical, specially if you want to avoid the 98 bunkers, including 15 on the par 5 10th and the 80ft deep monster guarding the par 3 17th green. 

Portmarnock Hotel's outstanding layout sees several holes running in between giant sand dunes and is therefore Royal Birkdale-esque in places and more aesthetically pleasing than world-famous neighbour Portmarnock Old Course where mega-rich Americans tend to head.

  • 3.5 out of 5 Wet, Windy and Wonderful

    By svallis

    A wonderful links course, a true test without the almost inevitable wind and rain. The pro-shop welcome is as friendly as any I have experienced and with a great hotel and restaurant on site a day or two to this part of Ireland is a special treat. Like all good links courses, the bunkers are brutal but the greens hold and run true. The practice facilities are somewhat limited but apart from this there is little I'd change.
