Review for Portmarnock Hotel & Golf Links

Reviewer Score:


I played this recently revamped course in July 2018, during sunny and windy conditions. The area had received very little rain during the summer, resulting in very fast fairways and lots of roll. I give the recent Portmarnock Hotel & Golf Links - Photo by reviewer upgrade high marks, as the tee boxes, traps and greens were generally in very good condition. Particularly in the wind, it will be important for mid-handicappers to select the correct set of tees, otherwise some par fours will not be reachable into the stiff breeze. As has been noted, the dunes are more dramatic on the back nine, resulting in more nuanced, interesting hole layouts and green complexes. Very convenient to the Dublin airport and a great, reasonably-priced addition to a Dublin area golf trip (Portmarnock, The Island, Royal Dublin and perhaps the European Club). Pat M., Houston, TX
