Trumps regular trips to Ireland highlight this magnificent place once. Found in County Clare, the Golf Course is a 72 par course that plays 9 in and 9 out.

The Portstewart Golf Club was founded in 1894 and is set in Ulster’s famous Causeway Coast and runs along the River Bann. It combines 73 holes over three remarkable courses; The Strand, The Riverside and The Old Course. The course consists of vast sand dunes that are encircled by the splendid views of the bay and the Donegal hills, making this a spectacular Irish golf trip.
Killarney Golf Club
Set in the stunning County Kerry, Killarney is a magical little town; and that’s just the touring part! There are also 3 courses in Killarney Golf Club: Killeen, Mahony’s Point and Lackabane. Killeen, re-designed as a more demanding course in 2006, played host to the Irish Open in 2010 and 2011. The course offers both spectacular lakeside scenery and challenging golf to players of all levels, with water features on nearly every hole. Mahony’s Point, at 6,800 yards, is ideally located to take advantage of the surrounding countryside and spectacular lake views. While in Killarney you shouldn’t miss the rest of the magic either. You will have your private chauffeur in Ireland show you all the beautiful scenery and famous landmarks that Kerry has to offer.
Waterville Golf Club plays on a coastal region. A remote location, with stunning views of the Macgillycuddy Reeks mountain range, to the Northeast. Waterville has three outstanding par 3’s and another three par 5’s, when you finish you want to go back and replay. The remote location it has precluded Waterville from hosting the major championships or tournaments, never-the-less, many famous faces like Mark O’Meara and Tiger Woods praised the architect, Eddie Hacket, for its near perfect design.
