Think of links golf in Ireland, and many people will immediately think of Portmarnock Golf Club, which is located a short distance from Dublin city centre and Dublin airport. Its reputation has been further enhanced by many professional golfers having enjoyed the true challenge of this distinguished and magnificently fashioned course on the north Dublin peninsula. Please read what two current, thoroughly decorated professionals have to say about this Irish links course:
“I had the opportunity to play in the 1991 Walker Cup at Portmarnock Golf Club, and it was one of the great highlights of my Amateur days, not only to represent the USA but also to enjoy the challenge of such a magnificent links course.” Phil Mickelson.
“I always love playing Portmarnock Golf Club; one of the world’s greatest links courses in my view.” Rory McIlroy
