The Dunes, is a 7,033 yard, par 73, championship links course, often a venue for National and Golfing Union of Ireland's top amateur events. The Dunes evolved from Eddie Hackett's original 18-hole design. The traditional links layout was reconfigured to include six new holes in the seaside dunes. Renowned architect Donald Steel designed the six new holes, and The Dunes was further refined to include four men's tee boxes to suit golfers at all handicap levels.
In true links fashion, the course layout is 'nine out' and 'nine back' to the clubhouse. Each golf hole follows the natural contours of the land. It challenges golfers of all abilities, their imaginations, demanding the use of every club in the bag. At Enniscrone, the wind, true links lies and firm elevated greens reward those who can hold a line, hit fairways and execute 'bump and run' shots.
The scenery of The Dunes is second to none. Twelve of the Dunes 18 holes wind through the tallest, shaggy dunes on the coast. A sense of isolation and tranquility surrounds you, along with tall marram grass roughs. The last four finishing holes are exhilarating and border the Atlantic Ocean. Dozens of our reviews attest to our surrounding beauty. However, we are fond of the UK's Top 100 Golf Course Review; "Enniscrone really is a breathtaking course with a serious challenge attached."
