“Stunning views and a great test of golf”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

Absolutely stunning views. Look at some pictures and then try to imagine it 5x better. The Old Course will test every club in your bag and make you play a lot of different types of shots. While demanding, it is ultimately fair. Its hard to imagine playing this course without a caddie as there are spots where you need knowledge of the course to play an effective shot. The caddies are excellent and fun. Everyone (including the goats) was friendly.

You will also get a pretty good workout going up and down the terrain, but that terrain is part of what gives you such spectacular views. If you get to Southern Ireland, make sure you play this course.

It was truly a privilege to play here.

“A killer course”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

Brilliant golf links course. We played on calm day, I have to get back and try it when the wind is up. HaHaHa what a masochist.

“Golf at it's Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 June 2014

What a great place. The history, the course, the staff. Truly a great experience for those who love the game. I played Lahinch on the final day of my 10 day golf trip and the track, routing and level of play made this course totally enjoyable - it rained, the wind howled, the sun came out, it rained again and then we played the second hole.......I walked, carried my own bag and brought along a local fore caddie who knew the course inside and out. My next golf trip to Ireland will include another round or two at Lahinch.

“Great Course”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

It's a lovely course. The caddy helps with all of the blind shots and suggestions on where to hit the ball + in looking for the same ball when it lands in the fescue. Be prepared for the cost of play before you go!

“A Must Play Course”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

This course is a true challange of your skills. A lot of blind shots and a lot of target golf. The greens are tough but reasonable. Narrow fairways and rough that will eat your ball. Not crazy about some of the holes -- a couple of intersecting fairways and a couple with totally blind shots into the green. The views are fantastic. The caddies were knowledgeable and provided a lot of laughs. The staff was fantastic. Be prepared to walk a very hilly terrain. Best to play it while you still have some legs. A must play course.
