West & East Ireland

Ireland West & East Golf Tour Itinerary...

Day 1:
Your Irish Golf Vacation begins with a transatlantic flight to Shannon, Ireland.

Day 2:
Upon arrival in Shannon, you will be met by an SGH Golf representative who will present you with a travel packet complete with maps, local information, and places of interest. After being shown to your rental vehicle, you will drive to Lahinch and your designated hotel.

Day 3:
After a full Irish breakfast, your first round of golf will be played at Doonbeg. Doonbeg is a spectacular new traditional 18-hole golf links development on a 337-acre complex of sand dunes and 1.5 miles of ocean front with tremendous views of the Atlantic coast from every hole. Designed by Greg Norman who described the site as "one of the greatest sites in the world for a sand-dune style links course". Doonbeg is located between two of Ireland's greatest links courses, Ballybunion and Lahinch. Non golfers may like to view the Cliffs of Moher.

Day 4:
Golf Today is on the Ballybunion Old Course. Located on the Shannon estuary, it is a true seaside links course, virtually treeless After playing Ballybunion for the first time, you would think that the game of golf originated there. and a course of sharp contours throughout. It looks like a course laid out on land back in the 10th century. non golfers may like to tour the town of Ballybunion.

Day 5:
This morning after breakfast golf will be arranged at Lahinch. Known as the St. Andrews of Ireland, the Old Course was originally laid out by Old Tom Morris. It is a classic Irish Links in every sense with plenty of blind shots, cavernous bunkers, and large, sweeping sand dunes. Holes number 4 and 5 (The Klondyke and The Dell) propose that you play completely blind to your target area, the latter with a volcanic-like green setting. A visit to Lahinch is a must for any student of the game. Non golfers may like to visit the town of Ennis. After golf you will transfer to Dublin and your designated hotel.

Day 6:
After breakfast a morning round is planned at European Club. The Links of The European Club presents a stunning golf and visual experience as it tumbles through almost 200-acres of glorious sand dunes and runs along the beach on Ireland's lovely east coast just south of Dublin. This is the first links to have been built on Ireland's east coast this century. An important happening in view of the fact that only 150 of the world's almost 40,000 golf courses are links! Non golfers may like to tour Dublin.

Day 7:
Today the great links at Portmarnock will test your golfing skills. Portmarnock Golf Club is universally acknowledged as one of the world's truly great links courses. Located on a small peninsula, which extends into the Irish Sea, Portmarnock is surrounded by water on three sides and laid out in serpentine fashion, with no two successive holes playing in the same direction. The quality and location of Portmarnock have made it a superb venue for some great events over the years. Non golfers may like to visit Malahide Castle.

Day 8:
This morning you may choose to extend your Irish golf vacation by visiting Royal Portrush and other northern areas.
