Before You Travel
  • What to Pack for GOLF:
    • quality rain suit, pants and jacket is a MUST! Zero Restriction and FootJoy are quality brands. If you do not own such apparel, it is expensive and note, you get what you pay for. So purchase wisely as you’ll be thankful you have it if you get a good lashing!
    • Rain gloves – a must when playing in the rain. They come in pairs and for good reason. A wet hand on a wet grip will only result in tears as your ball, and maybe your club too, will undoubtedly end up in the fescue.
    • A good ski hat – yes, not what you typically think of for golf but because most courses are on the ocean, the water temps are still only in the upper 50’s to 60 degrees. Combine these factors with some wind blowing onshore and then throw in some rain and it is a recipe for being miserable. A nice warm hat that can cover your ears could be your best friend.
    • A proper golf umbrella – a must as normal summer weather means intermittent showers that come and go throughout a 4 hour round. You can generally see what is coming so instead of changing in and out of rain gear, you can use a good sturdy wind-resistant umbrella to shelter you until the showers pass.

Now, what about sunshine? Yes, they do have it in Ireland and when it comes out especially in the late spring and summer months, it can be quite warm to hot. Therefore, a few pairs of golf shorts are in order. Golfers have been known to wear shorts under their rain pants simply because the extremes from shower to sunshine can be very dramatic – so this is sometimes the best approach.

All in all, these are the best tips to best prepare you for what we hope is a memorable experience golfing in Ireland.

European Club Golf Links

Golf on the links, i.e. the sandy deposits, blown up by the wind or dropped by receding tides, which link the beach to the inland soils is the original… of the species and by far the most exciting form of the game.

It is here at the seaside that the primary elements of sea, sky and earth collide with mighty force and play turbulent and beautiful games and bind mankind in a magical spell. It is here that golf enjoys that extra dimension.
