Portmarnock Golf Club - Championship Course
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.

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.
