Golfing in Ireland's West

Links Golf Adventures in the
Wilds of Mayo, Galway, and Clare

There's a certain wildness about the West. From the rocky lunar landscape of the Burren, the raw beauty of Connemara, or the powerful drama of the various islands that line the coast. Yet for all its wildness, the West has an urbane sophistication. Vibrant cities like Galway, Westport, and Ennis offer up fabulous array of creature comforts, lively pubs, exquisite dining, performing arts. So much to offer and golfing too?

Ireland's West enjoys a rich golfing heritage, fabulous championship links and parkland courses, reflecting the game's finest traditions. The most famous of which are found in Clare, names like Lahinch and Doonbeg are known the world over. But equally laudable are the courses of Galway and Mayo. Much to be said for the adventure of playing at courses like Carne Golf Club in the wilds of Belmullet in Mayo or Connemara Golf Links, among the raw beauty of the Connemara coast. The golf courses of Ireland's West give you reason aplenty for turning left out of Shannon.
