The Island Golf Club
Though it’s quite close to central Dublin, The Island is a rugged, isolated-feeling links course that features gigantic dunes that create what one writer called some of the most “rambunctious linksland" in the golfing world. On a peninsula (not an island) bordered by the Broadmeadow Estuary and the Irish Sea, it’s a windblown spot with challenging greens throughout. You’ll face lots of testing shorter holes, framed by the two very long holes that begin and close out the course.
