The Lodge at Doonbeg

View Tee Times

Doonbeg Golf Club officially opened in 2002, and was immediately designated as Golf Digest’s “Best New International Course.” In 2010 it held the prestigious title of European Golf Resort Of The Year which was awarded by the IAGTO. Enjoying a breathtaking location matched with distinctive services and facilities, Doonbeg’s unique accommodations and close proximity to Shannon Airport make it one of the world’s most desirable golf destinations. Two-time British Open champion Greg Norman is the course architect, selected for his incomparable design skill and his “least disturbance” philosophy of routing courses to fit existing terrains. Norman's layout follows a course designed by nature – 14 of Doonbeg’s greens and 12 of its fairways required no changes but a simple mowing of the grass. The fairways and greens consist of native grasses, including fine fescues, bentgrass, and ryegrass. The par-72 layout features a single loop of nine holes out and nine back, playing 6,885 yards from the back tees. The speed and direction of the wind cause consistent variation in play – to allow for a range of conditions and abilities, most holes feature five or more tee locations. The most natural routing within the existing dunes resulted in an uncommon combination of five par 3’s and five par 5’s. With such unique attributes and stunning views of the Atlantic from 16 holes, it’s clear you’ll never play another course like it. All the while the comforts and services of one of the top luxury hotels in Clare await your return!

More change is coming to Trump Ireland I haven't played the old Doonbeg since a Writer's Cup tournament in 2010. Much has changed since then. Donald Trump now owns the resort and a course battered by winter storms has seen tweaks on four coastal holes, Nos. 5-6 and 9 and 14. Martin Hawtree has helped the links become playable again by creating several new greens and a completely new par 3 at no. 14 to replace the old signature hole. More changes are coming. I've played the course probably 5-6 times over the years, and once I got the blind shots out of the way after the first round, I've always loved it. It's more scenic than Lahinch and the hospitality in the lodge and clubhouse are over-the-top fantastic. I can't wait to see if Hawtree can make the routing even more dynamic with new dunes in play. It could shoot up the top 100 charts. That's how special the setting is. July 28, 2014
Overrated Have played many courses in Ireland lahinch ballybunion trailee course even when finished wont touch them got serious attitude from a guy working on course for walking up a closed fairway to look at one of the few views that were out there. This course is not that close to the ocean like other great Irish ones don't waste your time just because it's a trump property. May 24, 2014
Superb Golfnow the way forward. Found a great deal and wanted to play a top class west coast links course!! I found it in doonbeg..awesome course, fairways like carpet altho greens caught me by surprise for a links as seemed slow but in very good condition. Views best I have come across and I've played north Cornwall and north Devon links courses!!!! It was a massive highlight for me to be able to play this course and realistically made possible by a superb deal on golf now..happy days! For info never played to my 13 handicap as wind was blowing in classic links style lol May 10, 2014
Phenomenal stay-and-play in Ireland Doonbeg is undeniably one of the best stay-and-play options in GB & I. The lodge is spacious and exquisitely appointed with large rooms and particularly caters to groups. The links is a modern complement to the historic links nearby like Lahinch. Some holes that play within the dunes are some of the most spectacular links holes in existence. December 26, 2013
soggy fun Played in 30MPH winds and monsoon like rain, so hard to give objective review on the course itself. Mt caddy was great as was the staff. I had always wondered what playing a high dollar course was like, and one thing I learned was that they treat you like your are special as soon as you walk in the door. The guys in the club house, caddy room, on the range were all great. October 1, 2013
Doonbeg Brilliance Staff was awesome. Views from the course are spectacular. I would recommend staying at the lodge. Also the food is wonderful at both restaurants. I would recommend getting a caddie for the first time visitor. Knowing the course and some help tracking and finding any ball that strays off the fairway will certainly be welcome. A great experience and I'll definitely be back. July 23, 2013
