The combination of bracing air and wind from the sea is one of the enduring attractions for golfers who ply their skills on two magnificent championship courses – the Old Course measuring 6950 yards and the Castle Course, measuring 5556 yards. There is a great welcome in Lahinch for golfers, young and old. Many golfers come from all parts of the world to play “Lahinch” and they regularly return. There is a friendly atmosphere at the Club and a deep appreciation of the game of golf.

The Old Course at Lahinch Golf Club, redesigned first by Alister Mackenzie in 1927, is a visual stunner to rival the British Isle's most spectacular and storied golf courses.
