Royal Dublin Golf Club

Ireland - Royal Dublin Golf Club

The Royal Dublin Golf Club is home to a superb and very traditional golf links on Bull Island in Dublin Bay. It is the second oldest golf club in Ireland instituted in 1885, and received its Royal designation in 1891. The famous golf architect Harry Colt was brought in to design the course following its destruction by the military during the First World War. It was then upgraded by Martin Hawtree in the late 1990’s to suit the modern game, and now plays in excess of 7,200 yards.

The renowned Irish player and Ryder Cupper Christy O'Connor joined Royal Dublin in 1959 as club professional, and his association with the club continues to this day. Television commentator David Feherty won his first professional tournament at Royal Dublin- The 1980 Irish National PGA Championship. It has also hosted the Irish Open and the Irish Amateur Open.
