Rated 5 out of 5 by Portmarnock - still a bucket-list experience After getting my second crack at Portmarnock, my impression of the place rose immensely. The host of 13 Irish Opens in the modern era is simply one of the classiest links in Ireland, and certainly a must-play if you're in Dublin. The name 'Championship Links' certainly applies. It's stocked with brawny holes. The par 4s on the front nine along the estuary are fantastic. The par 3 15th hole follows the dune line along a beautiful beach on the Atlantic Ocean. I'm still not convinced, however, there's enough charm there to elicit such a high world ranking among the top 40 courses in the world. Top 200, maybe, but not top 50. Portmarnock lacks land movement, enough ocean views and any short holes (either a little par 3 or drivable par 4) to be fun for everybody. If I hadn't met the member I joined with on the first tee, I would have been lost trying to decipher the three or four blind/semi-blind tee shots. It's a bucket list course, to be sure, but one where you can leave the camera at home. September 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by a day to remember Playing a true links style course is great but playing it in Ireland is fantastic. Portmarnock offers a challenge to all. Some of the carries over the fescue are long. Pot bunkers are everywhere. There is 1 par three on the back nine where the green is surrounded by pot bunkers, the Irish Sea on the right and from tee to green is fescue requiring an accurate tee shot. The staff were wonderful. The meal was excellent. I met many members who wanted to chat with a yank. I spent a couple of hours just chatting with the members. It is expensive but worth every Euro.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Course, underrated . We played this early in the day and the winds were down. The course is challenging but not penalizing. Every hole had its own character and the course very diverse. The view on the 15th tee with the ocean right is a great spot for a picture. It is a great golf experience, and would encourage anyone to play it if given the chance. July 16, 2014
