This was our first course of the five we played while in Ireland. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The course was challenging and very unique. I loved the two holes where you hit completely blind shots and th... read more »
We played today in about 30mph plus winds but temperature was 50F and no rain. We played from the green tees because of the wind. This is a beautiful course but it's tough. The wind made it really tou... read more »

I'm not sure how any golfer could rate this less than 5 stars. One of the most interesting courses in the world. If you want to know Irish golf, this is it
My favourite golf course in Ireland.
Not sure why this course is ranked so highly. It is extremely difficult for an average golfer. With what you are spending to play this course, a caddie is an excellent investment. Take plenty of balls, and be prepared for very cool temperatures and fierce winds, and quite possibly rain. There are seven or eight beautiful and/or charming holes, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 11, and 12, some of which don't even play along the coast. Most of the rest are tough, but not particularly interesting, except perhaps to purists. It's authentic links golf, no question, and if you want to be tested, go for it, but I would recommend Tralee, Ballybunion, and Old Head as still quite authentic and more beautifully playable. You don't finish a round at Lahinch, you survive it.
As a Floridian, I was Ill prepared for what Irish coast golf could dish out. 60 degree temps with 40mph winds with rain can spell disaster to the game. And it did. Lots of blind shots. Thick rough. Howling wind. Plus layers of clothes makes it hard to swing. All that said, it is a great course. Highly recommend hiring a caddie to help find balls particularly on the blind shots. Not sure I'd play it again, but the views are great. Course conditions are fabulous.
I played golf at Lahinch Golf course during the summer. It is certainly a fine course, with a world wide reputation. The weather can be unpredictable (wind especially). It is far too expensive, given the current climate and probably targeted at the American visitor. Parkland golf is a safer option in Ireland, unless you are sure of the weather.
