The European Club
First Established: 1987
Designed By: Pat Ruddy
Rather than being approached by a landowner to design a golf course, the illustrious and prolific Irish course designer Pat Ruddy actually proactively chose this magnificent slice of coastal land on which to build one of the most distinguished and now deservedly decorated links courses anywhere on this island.
The course itself runs along the eastern coast of Ireland, with views of the Irish Sea, and traverses through smile-inducing precipitous dune-land, which will provide a stern yet fair test of your golf.
Not only did Mr. Ruddy initially design the course but he continues, to this very day, 30 years after its initial design, to conscientiously and lovingly tweak many of the features at The European Club, thereby ensuring its continued and deep-rooted appeal and enjoyment for any and all who are privileged enough to play this Irish links course.
