Golf Course Dublin


Play Golf in Dublin

Being very near to Scotland, where golf was invented, Ireland has a strong golf appreciation. There are plenty of Dublin golf courses to keep enthusiasts happy on a visit to the fair city, many of them in the city’s outer neighborhoods and suburbs, within easy reach of the city centre. It is important to note that most Dublin golf courses use “links” style golf, which is popular in Britain, rather than American style golf with wide fairways.
