The Championship course at Portmarnock Hotel and Golf Links not far from Dublin is one of, if not the, finest links anywhere. The peninsular setting on the Irish Sea is characterized by undulating dunes and firm turf. At just under 6500 meters, the course is fairly lengthy, but the dominant aspects of play here are the strength of the breezes off ocean and the quarter from which they blow, though the abundant put bunkers and shaggy rough also contribute to the challenge. The greens, on the other hand, are for the most part generous and nicely sculpted. A round starts off with three fairly straightforward holes, after which things get progressively more daunting. Club pro Harry Blackshaw named the 5th, a blind drive with a 200-yard carry to the fairway, as the standout hole. Also noteworthy are a pair of par 5s on the back nine reachable in three and the par 3 15th.
