Portmarnock Links

Course Description:


Portmarnock has hosted the lion’s share of The Carrolls Irish Open over the last several decades. It displays, what many consider, the finest use of bunkering on any course in any country. Fairly straightforward in nature, there are perils for missing nearly every green or fairway. The 14th and 15th are Portmarnocks most famous with the former being described by Sir Henry Cotton as “the best golf hole in the world.” Played with a prevailing right to left wind off the sea, the par 3 15th may call for as much as a driver, and nearly requires that you send your ball out over the boundary fence and allow the strong breeze to bring it safely to the green.
