Lahinch, Ireland

Lahinch golf club is located on the west coast of Ireland and has 2 courses, where the Old Course is most recognized. They do not have a driving range, but have recently opened a great short game practice area. It was actually a bit refreshing as this forced us to practice a part of the game that usually doesn’t get enough attention anyway.

4th hole, par 5 with a very narrow landing area just before the mount.

The second shot from the fairway on 4th

If you manage to find the fairway a marker will let you know when the green is free and you have a blind shot over the mount.

Hole 5, Par 3, 148 yards

Can you spot the pin?, mostly likely not and the white rock is the aim from the tee on this par 3. I hit the green and made par. Personally I don’t like holes like this with blind tee shots over mounts.

6th hole is a dogleg left to right par 4 with a huge hole and bunker in the fairway. Nice views of the sea.

11th hole, Par 3, 156 yards

Great par 3 and one of my favourite holes. It played straight into the wind and is a really tricky hole where you pretty much have to hit the green to get a good score. I hit a 5 iron left into the high rough, see my recovery below.

Hole 12, Par 5, 514 yards

Really nice par 5 running along the water.

Approach to 14th which is a long par 4.

I shot a dissapointing 86 with a birdie on the last hole. Didnt hit many fairways and therefore also very few GIR. It is a good experience and the course has many nice holes. We had fantastic playing conditions and I would recommed playing the course.
