Ireland Golf Vacations

By Jim & Barbara Nicol

The Irish courses you read about are unmistakably scenic. The fact is, in Ireland the best golf course designer is nature herself. Into this scene come hordes of golfers from all over the world, especially Americans, hungering for true links-style golf.

World class courses and spectacular scenery are found throughout the Emerald Isle, but the west and southwest - home to famed Ballybunion and Lahinch - is uniquely enchanting and beautiful. It is rugged along the jagged coastline and idyllically serene in the hills and on the grassy plains that seem to stretch forever. No wonder this land has inspired poets and mystics.

Put Ireland on your must-play list. Golf just doesn't get much better than this. And be sure to bring a camera as you will find many Kodak moments. *
