Lahinch, an Irish Golf Vacations must

Lahinch Golf Club – Old style Links, an Irish Golf Vacations must

We started our review of the feature courses of our South West Golf Tours Ireland Special Offer by looking at Trump International, Doonbeg, one of two links courses of international renown and world class distinction in Co. Clare. Since then we have been to Adare, in County Limerick, Old Head in Kinsale, County Cork, and we have visited two gem links gifts in County Kerry.

Today we return to Co. Clare another county with not one but two world class links courses, and so we take a close up look at the second of those courses, Lahinch Golf Club, a piece of history in itself and a must play experience as part of any recommended Irish golf vacations package.   First off, let’s remind ourselves quickly of two things, that are always to the fore of Irish Golf vacations long time expert Mike Ryan. By flying Shannon, you are arriving in Co. Clare, just outside of Limerick City. Right here we are in very short driving distance to a collection of the most amazing golf experiences nucleated more closely than perhaps anywhere else in the world. This in a nutshell is what makes this area ideal for Irish Golf Vacations be they customized or from a menu. As a veteran of Ireland Golf Vacations, Mike says that it gives him enormous pleasure offering his clients five star accommodation, five star golf links courses and five start hospitality, but its the fact that its all bundled up so neatly in the South West Ireland Golf Vacations special offer that really makes clients feel they get more golf and less logistics for their money, and that’s what the Executive Hire team are all about.

Golf Tours Ireland Special Offer – Bullybunion featured

 

Playing Ballybunion, the first thing to do is to decide which of the two courses to play first. Well, you’ve the Robert Trent Jones Senior designed ‘Cashen’ Course which is the more modern development of the two and there’s the ‘Old Course’ which dates back to the turn of the 20th century. Ordinarily we’d say there’s no contest between a time shaped links and a newer development, but in the case of Mr Trent Jones Senior, and the fact that both options here are links golf at its purest you wont go far wrong either way. Both rate highly and it’s fair to say the old course rates consistently higher but that’s often the case with a course that as established as Ballybunion, sitting in the top spots on golf course rankings since time began.  The Old Course is quite a physical experience, while the new course is more typical of technical demands of the modern era. So we’ll trump for the Old course because today we’re talking about feature courses on our 2015 Golf Tours Special Offer, and as part of that package we’ll have time for one round in ‘BallyB’. Ballybunion is the 5th course we’re featuring on our discounted golf vacation packages Ireland offer.
