|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 to be taken to move links design into 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 provided for an unforgettable round.
