Doonbeg is home to a fairly new golf course in terms of Irish golfing many Golf Courses here are around a long time, some over a century old. It was opened in 2002 and was considered an ideal location for the Golf links. It was designed by two-time British Open Champion Greg Norman and stretches to 1.5 miles of beach and sand dunes. When it was opened an exhibition match was hosted with the infamous Padraig Harrington and Greg Norman playing it.
Doonbeg Golf Club was purchased by Donald Trump in 2014 for an estimated €15 million. The presidential candidate aimed to turn Doonbeg into a “truly iconic” golfing resort. The famous billionaire changed the name of the links to Trump International Golf Links and Hotel Doonbeg, Ireland.
The Golf Course is a 72 par course that plays 9 in and 9 out. The speed and variation of wind in this open play can be the challenge that awaits here. This is definitely a course in which all clubs will be used!

The Burren National Park is derived from the Irish word ‘boireann’ meaning rocky place, and it certainly is! Mainly formed of limestone rock the Burren stretches over 15,000 Acres and is the smallest National Park in Ireland. There have been many tombs found around the Burren, made from the rocks, the famous being the Portal Dolmen, proving people have lived in the Burren for over 5,000 years. It’s a very different landscape for Ireland as there’s no lush green grass and it’s easy to forget with the vast area of rock that you’re still in Ireland.
