At the Edge of Europe on the wild
Atlantic coast lies a links course that is a challenge to
all who play her. Nestled between the mountains and the sea
in the West of Ireland, the Connemara Championship Golf
Links is an exhilarating golfing experience. This awesomely
picturesque 72 par course with breathtaking views of the
Atlantic Ocean was designed by Eddie Hackett and measures
over 7,000 yards. Wind and rainbows are the specialty of the
house at this 27 hole course which was started in 1973.
One can expect any type of weather on any day at this
traditional links course. The course is indeed a joy to play
An invigorating sea breeze is likely to
escort you up the 381yard first hole. The second opens the
horizon to big sky above the Twelve Ben Mountain Range.
Breathtaking views of swans, Connemara Ponies and even a
castle will inspire you ...all part of the magic of this
adventurous 27 hole championship course. The back nine has
been described as "the equal of any in the world."
Greens set high in the
hillside on the 14th and 15th can be unnerving, particularly
after the very short but testing 13th. In the year 2000, an
additional nine opened. The first two holes meander along
the coast with waves pounding on white sand beaches below.
The third and fourth curl inland along a tricky waterway.
The next five holes are a climb into rocky rolling hills
with stunning mountain and ocean views.
