Welcome to Destination Golf Ireland 2021
Covid-19 had a devastating impact on the golf tourism industry worldwide in 2020. As we publish this guide, we are optimistic about the pent-up demand for golf and the much-anticipated vaccine roll out to ensure safer golfing holidays. Our 152-pages will take you on a golf journey around Ireland, highlighting our favourites with direct website links for bookings in 2021.
We have all heard the phrase that “content is key”, so this edition is packed full of stunning golf imagery and informative text from renowned Irish golf journalist and photographer Kevin Markham. To spice things up a bit, Kevin also talks about courses along the “Borderline” and excellent “Stay & Play” options.
Over the years, Ireland has built a reputation for its ability to stage global golf events like the Ryder Cup, Solheim Cup, and Curtis Cup, as well as the Irish Open and the Open Championship. It has produced golfing legends, Ryder Cup heroes and Major winners.
Take a quick glance at the list of golf course designers here and you will find famous names including Nicklaus, Palmer, Norman, Faldo, Montgomerie, O’Meara, Langer, O’Connor Jnr, McGinley, mixed with the legendary designers of old.
