Trump International Golf Links Ireland (formerly known as Doonbeg Golf Club) has a diverse landscape that sprawls from a crescent-shaped beach covered in centuries-old sand dunes inland towards verdant rolling hills. Greg Norman, the course's designer, was immediately aware of the enormous potential available. The rugged terrain practically made the course itself. Fourteen of the greens and twelve of the fairways required no changes at all, just a simple mowing of the grass. Routed along the existing 100-foot dunes, the layout is a simple loop of nine holes out and nine holes back, but the speed and direction of the wind make the course uniquely challenging every time you play. The towering fescue rough throughout is nearly impenetrable but they are nicely balanced by the wide fairways. There are also different bunker varieties used, including Scottish-style pot bunkers.
