Internationally, Ireland’s commitment to golf was rewarded with the staging of the Ryder Cup 2006 at the Palmer Course of the K Club. The Ryder Cup is set to return to Ireland in 2027 to Adare Manor.
Famous Irish golf courses are Old Head Golf Links, The European Club, Lahinch Golf Club, The Island Golf Club, Killeen Castle, Adare Manor, Ballyliffin Golf Club, Druids Glen and Fota Island.
With more than 300 golf clubs - including a third of the world’s natural links courses - and a slew of exceptional championships courses in spectacular locations, it’s no wonder that golf in Ireland is here to stay. Irish golf courses attract thousands of golfers from all over the world. This year, why not join them?
There are also several great golf resorts in Ireland. If you're looking for golf and other entertainment, then consider Druids Glen Hotel & Golf Resort, Adare Manor, Rosapenna Golf Resort, The K Club Golf Resort or Luttrellstown Castle Resort.
