Luttrellstown Castle Resort, Dublin.
By Kevin Markham, Editor, Destination Golf Ireland 2020.

Luttrellstown Castle has the advantage of routing its golf course over a vast 567 acre estate, right on the edge of Dublin city. Big, lazy and expansive, it takes in the River Liffey, as well as sentinel-like mature trees which have been employed to shepherd holes and create impressive backdrops… although the castle at the far end of the course may prove most dramatic of all.

There are no climbs, but the undulations ensure a flowing rhythm to your round while the trees add scale and drama. It is a surprisingly open course, with 11 holes featuring water, but it is long. At close to 6,800 yards from the middle tees, you will want to open your shoulders. Stunning clubhouse and facilities.

Favourite Hole: The par four 11th curves gently with water on the left tracking your every move. The famous castle is most visible from here.

What’s in the Bag? The bunkering threatens far more than you might think… so pick a tee that suits your game.
