Lahinch Golf Club
Lahinch, with its towering sand dunes, undulating fairways and rolling greens is the perfect natural golfing terrain – a true links. The original course design work by old Tom Morris was later improved upon by Alistar MacKenzie. The feature holes include the long 5th known as the “Klondyke”, with a completely blind second shot over a dune which straddles the fairway. This hole is followed by the “Dell”, the 156 yards par three 6th, which requires another blind shot to reach the green.
