As the name suggests, the golf course at Achill Island Golf Club can be found on Achill Island which is located in the far west of Ireland. Connected to the mainland by a causeway and bridge, the course here is secluded yet beautiful and offers some stunning views over some wild countryside as well as the imposing North Atlantic Ocean. Although secluded, there is plenty on the island to entertain both golfing and non-golfing visitors and all are sure to enjoy their play here. 

The club here has a rich and extensive history of which it is proud and visitors here are sure to find plenty of evidence of this within the clubhouse. The fact that it is one of the most westerly clubs in Ireland is also reflected extensively throughout the clubhouse.

Of a links style, the course here consists of nine holes and has a par 35. The nine holes measure a distance of 2726 metres however the popular option here is to play the loop twice to make an eighteen. Made up of six par 4’s, two par 3’s and one par 5 the course here should not be underestimated as although at first it seems easy, the intelligently placed bunkers provide one hell of a challenge for all.

Facilities at the club are fair and players are sure to find most facilities here that they should need so as to fully enjoy their play here. Tee time availability for visitors here is generally good and there should be a time to suit all if booked in fair time. Green fee rates are also very reasonable here and players are sure to find this a good value for money course. 

As the course is quite secluded getting here from much of the rest of Ireland can be time consuming and tricky however within the local area access is good and visitors from further afield should not be deterred from visiting here. With regards to accommodation, there are a fair number of options in and around the local area which should appeal to most tastes and budgets.

    Amazing course that flies under the radar. Course length is wrong in your description. It is just under 7100 yards of the tips. Very welcoming staff . Trump doonbeg comes in very high only because of the new name associated with it now. Does not say much for the credibility of the ratings.

    Die abgelegene Lage läßt einen einfachen, landschaftlich reizvollen Golfplatz erhoffen. Die Wirklichkeit ist ernüchternd. Eine einzige mit grasenden Schafen bevölkerte Schafwiese. Clubhaus ungeflegt und dem Charakter eines Bauwagens. Abschläge ungepflegt übersät mit Plastikflaschen, Fairways überall mit Schafexkrementen gespickt. Greens zum Schutz (wovor?) umzäunt mit kleinen Durchlässen. Obwohl am Rand des Atlantiks gelegen ist der Meerblick versperrt. 15 € Greenfee sind bei der Mehrfachnutzung von Mensch und Schaf viel zuviel. Als langjähriger Besucher zahlreicher irischer Golfplätze der bisher schlechteste Platz.

    Took a group of friends from my own club there last year and they all enjoyed it very much.
