Lahinch Golf Club - Old Course

Description

The Old Course is one of two 18-hole courses at Lahinch Golf Club. Golf at Lahinch dates back to 1892, making it one of Ireland's oldest clubs. The Old Course is a classic seaside links layout with rolling greens and undulating fairways. The towering sand dunes that cover the landscape guarantee that golfers will encounter several blind shots. The unpredictable winds coming off the ocean add an interesting twist to the round. The golf course's most famous holes are the par-5 fourth and the par-3 fifth. The fourth requires a drive to a long, narrow fairway. It is nicknamed the "Klondyke" after the treacherous hill that blocks the view for the second shot. After the tricky fourth hole, golfers are then immediately faced with an unusual par-3 that is nestled between two steep dunes and is completely blind from the tee.
