About 35 miles South of Dublin and 5 miles from the town of Wicklow you’ll find the magnificent European Golf Club, sitting pretty on the east coast of Ireland on Brittas Bay.
The golf links was designed by Pat Ruddy – acknowledged as the world’s leading links designer. Some thirty years on he continues his work at the links – constantly calibrating it to meet the challenges of the modern game, and making sure that today’s golf champs enjoy expressing themselves during a game that also challenges and inspires them.
With magnificent, sweeping views of the Irish Sea from nineteen of the twenty holes, the links is a wonderful medley of rugged dunes, deep bunkers, sea breezes and large undulating greens. It is one of the longest links at 7,490-yards from the tips. The course features two extra par 3s which are in play most days – giving golfers a 20-hole round which includes five holes running very close to the sea. It’s very common to find players searching for their golf balls on the beach!
You should have strategic thinking, a strong character and good shot-making skills in your golfing arsenal – and expect to enjoy every moment of your game here.
