As its name implies, the Island Golf Club is surrounded by water and from the club's opening in 1890 to as recently as 1973, it could only be accessed by boat. It is bordered by the Broadmeadow Estuary, Donabate Beach, and the Irish Sea. Despite its proximity to Dublin, the enormous dunes, some of the highest in Ireland, that are scattered throughout the golf course give it an enclosed, almost secluded, feel. The no-frills links layout blends seamlessly with the rugged natural terrain. The course's signature hole is the 13th, which is a lengthier par 3 at 220 yards. Golfers can use the bailout option just short of the green to the left but the more daring will take on the beach and hope for the best.
