" /> Enniscrone is one of those links that you can recommend to your friends and visitors without any fear that they will come away disappointed. With rugged dunes unchanged since time began, a bracing wind, clear sky, one of the most beautiful beaches in Ireland, the Moy Estuary and the Atlantic Ocean, all encompassed by the backdrop of the Nephin and Ox Mountains as they loom heavily against the sky. Undoubtedly it is its right to be included among such exalted company as Ballybunion, Connemara, Lahinch, Waterville and Bantry Bay as the premier links on the Western seaboard.

When Eddie Hackett was invited to design an extension to the modest nine hole course which existed here up to 1974, the terrain prompted his observation: "A pleasing feature is the variety. As well as holes in the open flatland there will be those ranging through the sand dunes with the occasional dog-leg adding to the attraction." In 1974 the links were extended to 18 holes on a design prepared by the great Eddie Hackett returning the natural appearance of the dunes, yet blended and shaped holes through them that has interfered very little with the Lords creation.

Donald Steele, the celebrated British golf course architect was commissioned to design an additional nine holes in the late 1990's. These holes were completed by early 2001 and have been integrated into the original layout. The design work by Hackett and Steele reflects a marvellous empathy with majestic duneland, superb greens and wonderful scenery.

In replacing some of the weaker holes, the present championship course at Enniscrone now represents as fine a test of links golf as one can find anywhere.
