“Play an Old School Links Course”





A truely magnificent links course! This course is a difficult links course with stunning views of the sea and the bay area.Played with a very knowledgeabl and efficient caddy which helped a lot.
Gorgeous Clubhouse with a lot of memorabilia, always woth a visit, although not a cheap round of golf.

Portmarnock is quite simply a national treasure. If you play golf and want an enjoyable challenge you must play this course. It's not "stunning" from a visual perspective when compared to Ballybunion or some other leading links courses but each hole is uniquely challenging.

We had a nice lunch in the clubhouse before playing and the staff in both the restaurant and pro shop were very friendly and helpful.

Will definitely play again.

On a quick visit to the pro's shop whilst passing Portmarnock GC on a holiday in Dublin, I purchased a couple of momentos. When I later looked at the credit card receipt, I found that they had converted the euro charge into sterling. I was not asked if I wanted to do this - in fact I always choose the foreign currency and am therefore subject to the MasterCard conversion rate which is always better than the rate imposed at the merchant outlet. Very sneaky treatment!

If you would like an old school links course this one fits the bill. two of us had the opportunity to play the course in June 2013. The course was beautiful in a non US Links way. This course is a difficult links course that has a beautiful surrounding including stunning water view holes. The caddy master and club pro were helpful and attentive. The products in the pro shop are high quality and expensive. This course provided a terrific links experience that we will long remember. Included Included in the green fee was a nice lunch in a long established club house where the first Walker Cup was played.

Our group of ten golfers played Portstewart, Ballyliffin, Castlerock, Royal Portrush, Royal County Down, and Portmarnock. This course rated far at the bottom in terms of beauty, impression, service and value, ridiculous prices in the pro shop and for caddies. Disappointing.
