Spanning 1.5 miles of crescent-shaped beach and sand dunes, the Trump International Gold Links at Doonbeg, County Clare, is a par 72 layout, with a single loop of 9 holes out and 9 back, playing 7 026 yards from the back tees. The course opened in 2002, when Greg Norman defeated Irish Ryder Cup star Padraig Harrington by 2 to 1 in an exhibition match, and its layout is considered years ahead of its age and among the elite of European courses.
It’s a glorious course to play, with magnificent views of the Atlantic from 16 of 18 holes and natural surrounding second to none, including 100-foot sand dunes. Every hole has its own identity which will both reward and challenge each golfer.
The Clubhouse is a huge attraction too – regarded as one of the largest clubhouses in Ireland.

While You're Here
County Clare is proud to be one of the most visited counties in Ireland – with cultural, historical, geographical and social attractions aplenty. Top of the list has to be the Cliffs of Moher - Ireland’s favourite visitor attraction, 350 million years old and towering 214m (702 feet) over the Atlantic. A trip with a difference is a sail from nearby Doolin across to the beautiful unspoilt Aran Islands, while the fascinating Aillwee Caves and Bunratty Castle and Folk Park are just short drives away.
