  Spanish Point  Lahinch Championship Course

A delightful and quirky nine hole links course eight miles south of Lahinch that has somehow survived more than a century, notable for being the first course of Dr Patrick Hillery, President of Ireland from 1978 to 1990.

The length (when played twice) is only 5000 yards, par 64, but there is great fun to be had as you navigate through a handful of very large dunes and try to make sense of the very original new layout.

Frequently referred to as the St. Andrews of Ireland, Lahinch looks out on the ever-changing Atlantic Ocean and is subject to all her mood swings.

The main championship links at Lahinch (Par 72, 6,753 yards) is proud of the reputation it has gathered as a stern challenge to the most gifted of golfers.



Kilkee Doonbeg 
  Kilkee has developed into an 18 hole Course. In latter years it has blended the old and the new into a course that the members are very proud of. 

The views in Kilkee are breathtaking, with first and second tees looking out onto the Atlantic Ocean and the third Tee overlooking Chimney Bay with a spectacular clifftop view.

Designed by Greg Norman, Doonbeg Golf Club plays along 1.5 miles of beach and dunes. The ocean is visible from the green, fairway, or tee of 16 of the 18 holes.

The par 72 layout features a single loop of nine holes out and nine back. It plays 6,885 yards from the back tees.
 All within local distance of SouthWind. Also 'pitch an put' is available locally.
