Lahinch golf club, 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.

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
tricky par 3

Can you spot the pin?, mostly likely not.  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.

my experience

I shot a dissapointing 86 at Lahinch golf club with a birdie on the last hole. I did not 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.
