Portmarnock (Old)

Founded
W.C. Pickerman/George Ross/Mungo Park, 1894/George Coburn, 1896, 1896

Seve Ballesteros, Bernhard Langer and Ian Woosnam are among those who won Irish Opens at this low-profile but character-filled Dublin-area links. Arnold Palmer once tabbed the 15th as one of golf’s best par-3s. Deep pot bunkers and low dunes that offer little protection from the wind make Portmarnock Ireland’s sternest, yet fairest, championship test. (Up 1)
