Everyone naturally flocks to Lahinch to play the Old course and few people will have heard about the club’s second course, the Castle. It’s not in the same league as its big, elderly brother but it’s a genuine fun links and an ideal warm up (or warm down) track.

The Castle course at Lahinch Golf Club was fashioned in the mid 1970s by Commander John D. Harris and is located on the opposite side of the road to the Old course, on land that was earmarked by George Gibson – the professional of Royal North Devon Golf Club – on his visit the early 1900s to re-vamp the original links.

The Castle is shorter, more forgiving and less undulating than the Old, but it is worth a look in its own right and is a course to be sampled by any links aficionado.
