The links of The European Club presents a stunning golf and visual experience as it tumbles through almost 200 acres of glorious sand dunes and runs along the beach on Ireland's lovely East coast just South of Dublin. This is the first links to have been built on Ireland's East coast this century. An important happening in view of the fact that only 150 of the world's almost 40,000 golf courses are links! Links golf is, of course, the original of the species and all other courses are modelled on the natural principles of linksland play ... bunkers, mounding and fast running greens. The European Club has been designed to be the greatest links of the 21st century and great care has been taken to move links design into a new age with great sensitivity to the traditions and skills of linksland golf.

Blind shots are notably absent at The European Club but all the thrills of pitch-and-run golf, pot bunkers of cavernous proportions, tall dunes and the opportunity to slice your ball onto the beach provide for an unforgettable round. The links opened in 1992 and has already gained recognition as one of Ireland's six greatest golf courses ... alongside Ballybunion, Portmarnock, Royal Portrush, Royal County Down and Waterville... according to a poll of 64 Irish golf experts conducted by the Irish Golf Institute; and as one of the five best new courses opened in Britain & Ireland since 1992 by 'Golf World'. The links has been designed by its owner, Pat Ruddy, who has designed many of Ireland's great courses, and he will welcome you.
