The Old Course is designed by Tom Morris/Alister MacKenzie and is the St Andrews of Ireland. It looks out on the Atlantic Ocean and is taxing to play when blustery winds come in off the Atlantic.Lahinch’s 5th hole is one of the most talked about golf holes in the world, simply Known as “The Dell”. It is an original design from Tom Morris. The reason that the Dell is so famous from the Tee, is that the hole is entirely blind. This tough, 154 yards, par 3 is surrounded on all sides by massive, natural sand dunes. Starting off, all the player can see are dunes and a white direction rock, which provides the line for locating the hole. If that wasn’t a challenge enough, the hole plays directly into the wind and towards the sea. This will give you loads to talk about later when you re-group with the rest of your party!
