Designed by two-time British Open Champion Greg Norman, the world renowned 18 hole championship Doonbeg golf links course at Trump International Golf Links & Hotel™ Ireland (formerly the Lodge at Doonbeg), spans 1.5 miles of crescent shaped beach and century old sand dunes along Doughmore Bay. The course was officially opened in 2002 and immediately earned the prestigious title of Golf Digest's Best New International Course. In 2010, Trump International Doonbeg was awarded European Golf Resort of the Year by the IAGTO.
The speed and direction of the wind cause consistent variation in play. However, to help players perfect their game, golf instruction is available for both individuals and groups throughout the year with our resident golf professional. Caddies, who are independently trained to expert international standards through our Caddie Programme, are also available to significantly improve your pace-of-play, scoring, and overall experience.
High quality golf merchandise and luxurious gift items can be purchased at the Golf Shop, which is located in the courtyard of Trump International Doonbeg. Offering views of the Atlantic from 16 of 18 holes, the Greg Norman-designed course at Trump International Golf Links Ireland is a stunning sight to behold. The average time taken for a round of golf is four hours and thirty minutes. The par-72 layout features a single loop of nine holes out and nine back, playing 6,885 yards from the back tees. In line with Norman's philosophy of ‘least disturbance', the most natural route was taken in laying the course out through the sand dunes. As a result, the course has a unique combination of five par 3s and five par 5s.
