Founded in 1892, the original layout of the course was the brainchild of Old Tom Morris, four times British Open Champion. A remaining example of his work is the famous 5th hole known as “The Dell”.
1927 saw the arrival of Alastair MacKenzie, who was a purist in golf design. MacKenzie strongly believed in keeping a natural appearance to the golf course, creating and shaping holes through the dunes and creating greens with subtle contours and movement, rolling with the natural fall of the land. These values and beliefs are still in place today.
The Old Course (Par 72, 6950 yards), with spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean, provides a stern challenge to even the most gifted golfers, and is justifiably proud of the worldwide acclaim it has received over the years.
Lahinch Golf Club, often referred to as the St. Andrew’s of Ireland, and the village of Lahinch are steeped in golf and its traditions with a welcoming and pleasant smile to greet all visitors.
“Lahinch will make the finest and most popular course that I, or I believe anyone else, ever constructed” - Dr. Alastair MacKenzie
