Doonbeg Golf Course - Doonbeg

Doonbeg Golf Club Image

Doonbeg Golf Course officially opened in 2002, and was immediately designated as Golf Digest’s “Best New International Course.” Enjoying a breathtaking location matched with distinctive services and facilities, Doonbeg’s unique accommodations and close proximity to Shannon Airport make it one of the world’s most desirable golf destinations. Chosen for his “least disturbance philosophy,” The Doonbeg golf site was designed by two-time British Open Champion Greg Norman. Spanning 1.5 miles of crescent shaped beach and century-old sand dunes, the course offers views across the Atlantic from the green, the fairway, or tee of 16 of the 18 holes. Variations in wind speed and direction ensure the course plays differently each and every time. It is expected that an 18-hole round of golf at Doonbeg will take no more than 4 hours and 30 minutes. The Par-72 layout features a single loop of nine holes out and nine back, playing 6,885 yards from the back tees. The most natural routing within the existing dunes resulted in an uncommon combination of five par 3s and five par 5s. Wind direction and speed determines consistent variation in play – for example the average golfer will play from a sand wedge to a 5-iron on the 111 yard 14th. To allow for a range of conditions and abilities most holes feature five or more tee locations.
