Course Description

From the infant days back in 1892 up to its 125th anniversary, the Club has stood out on its own merits as a golfing institution like none other.

Lahinch Golf Club is renowned for the way the links has retained all of its old virtues. It has benefited from the willingness, over the decades, to move with the times and is now regarded as one of the best and most enjoyable challenges to be found anywhere in the golfing world.

The legendary Old Tom Morris set the highest standards for the course from the outset. He was followed by equally celebrated architects Charles ‘Mo’ Gibson and Dr Alister MacKenzie.

In more recent times, the expertise of Dr Martin Hawtree ensures its place in the higher echelons of all golf rankings.

Lahinch will make the finest and most popular golf course that I, or I believe anyone else, ever constructed.

-Dr Alister MacKenzie (1926)
