Day 1 Arrive into Dublin Airport. Board your luxury motor vehicle and travel to the city centre for your accommodation. Today you will play the beautiful and challenging Island links. This course, in splendid isolation, nestles itself between the highest sand dunes of any links course in Ireland. The Island is the Irish qualifying course for The Open Championship from 2005-2010. Overnight Dublin.
Day 2 Golf at the European Club. A true and great links designed and owned by Pat Ruddy, one of Ireland's foremost golf architects. South of Dublin on the County Wicklow coast, the course tumbles through massive sand dunes and provides stunning views of the Irish Sea. Tiger Woods recorded the course record 67 on his first visit to the club. Overnight Dublin.
Day 3 Golf at K-Club host to the Ryder Cup matches in 2006. One of the finest and most testing inland courses in Ireland, this course requires accuracy, skill and nerve. The River Liffey and other water hazards feature on the majority of holes. Overnight Dublin.
Day 4 Golf Old Portmarnock Links. This is an outstanding links. It demands accuracy and skill together with a high level of commitment, nowhere more than the par-3, 15th, where a tee-shot should be aimed out over the beach to allow the wind to bring it back to the green. Portmarnock occupies a small peninsula and provides a splendid sense of isolation. Overnight Dublin.
Day 5 Check out of your hotel this morning. Travel north for your next round of golf to Baltray, Co. Louth. Probably Ireland's most underrated links, Baltray has long been a favorite with Irish links enthusiasts. On the mouth of the River Boyne, the course is situated in natural and unspent linksland. Baltray hosted the 2004 Irish Open. After golf continue on to your next overnight in Portrush, Northern Ireland.
Day 6 Golf today is at the excellent Royal Portrush. Host course to the 2004 Senior British Open, Royal Portrush is consistently ranked as one of the world's greatest golf courses. The dramatic sea views should not (but do!) divert one's attention from the serious challenge posed by the 6,900 yards. Overnight Portrush.
Day 7 Today’s round is at Royal Portstewart. For a long time Portstewart was overshadowed by its neighbour Royal Portrush. However, the addition of seven new holes through the dunes in the late 1980's has made the Strand Course a must play for the visiting golfer. The first hole is widely regarded as the best opening hole in Ireland. Overnight Portrush.
Day 8 Depart Portrush and travel down to Newcastle to play Royal County Down. This course is consistently rated as one of the world's best courses. It is an excellent test of golf and the outward half are the equal of any nine holes anywhere. Overnight Newcastle.
Day 9 Sadly your tour has come to end. After breakfast we will transfer you to Dublin Airport where there is time for duty-free shopping before boarding your return flight.
