The Royal Dublin Golf Club

Situated on a great piece of seaside terrain stretching out into Dublin Bay, sits The Royal Dublin Golf Club. Home course of legendary Irish professional Christy O’Connor Senior, the club has hosted numerous Irish Open Championships and many top amateur tournaments. I spent five happy years here in my early professional career and to this day it is one of my favourite places to play Golf. The iconic par 5 18th Hole at Royal Dublin tempts the golfer to take on the green in two, necessitating taken the ball over an out of bounds area known as “The Garden” to set up an eagle opportunity. A treacherous finish.

 

Adjacent to the 18th green, a famous par 5. The area I’m standing is actually out of bounds!
8 Deep bunkers, bring that 60 degree wedge!
