Doonbeg Golf Club officially opened in 2002 and was immediately designated ‘Best New International Golf Course’ by Golf Digest. In 2010 it held the prestigious title of European Golf Resort of the Year presented by the IAGTO (Global Golf Tourism Organisation) and, in 2011, was named as one of the top 100 courses in the world by Golf Magazine.
In line with Greg Norman’s design philosophy of ‘least disturbance’, Doonbeg has been carved from sand dune origins; 14 greens and 12 fairways required no changes other than the necessary mowing of grass. All of the fairways and greens are a blend of native grasses such as fine fescues, bentgrass and ryegrass. The course is laid out as a single, par-72 loop of nine holes out and nine holes back, playing 6,885 yards from the back tees.
This beautiful golf course is complemented by one of the finest 5-Star hotels in Ireland, The Lodge at Doonbeg, as well as the fine cuisine served in the Long Room Restaurant and recuperative spa treatments offered at the White Horse Spa. Situated only 45 minutes from Shannon International Airport, Doonbeg is an unmissable golfing experience.
