The Links

“Five-star golf”, “a top course”, “challenging but rewarding” are some of the comments made by our visitors after playing the links at The Royal Dublin Golf Club. Our links is a traditional out-and-back design created in 1920 by Harry Colt. In the early 2000's the Club enlisted links design expert Martin Hawtree to make significant changes which have been widely praised and acknowledged by many. After these changes the links remains challenging for today’s golfer.
