Portmarnock Hotel and Golf Links can be found to the North East of the capital Dublin just outside of the small coastal town of the same name in County Dublin, Ireland. The Hotel and its links golf course lie between the fellow coastal towns of Baldoyle and Malahide. Portmarnock itself is the ancestral home of the famous whiskey producing Jameson family and their estate. The land which once held their own private golf course now incorporates this fine example of a links course.
Opened in 1996, the course was designed by Bernhard Langer who collaborated with the landscape architect Stan Eby. The course should not be confused with its neighbour Portmarnock Golf Club which although similar in name is owned and ran completely separately.
This championship standard course measures 6514 metres and is an example of a very traditional links course. Its 18 holes have a par of 71 and have played host to a variety of championships over the years including the Irish Ladies’ Open in both 2008 and 2009. Expect elevated greens and tees combined with a number of dog legs and blind approaches that cumulate to create a thrilling round of golf. Add to this the prominent sea breezes that define links courses and players are set for an unforgettable experience.
Facilities at the course highlight its links with the infamous Jameson family as drinks and refreshments are served from the eponymous Jameson bar which is housed in Old Jameson House; the former residence of the family. Further facilities are available at the courses associated hotel to address all golfers’ needs.
Visiting players are warmly welcomed at the cou rse, tee times are numerous throughout the day and availability varies with the seasons. Green fee rates are very reasonable considering the quality of the course and its stance as one of the top links courses in Ireland as well as one of the Top 100 general courses in the UK and Ireland as decided by Golf Monthly.
Thanks to its proximity to the capital the course and hotel have well established travel links by all typical forms such as road, rail and air (Dublin International Airport is only a short 15 minute journey away from the course).

Average rating obtained byThis rating for Portmarnock Hotel Links Golf Club. is the average of 1 ratings obtained from www.todaysgolfer.co.ukA wonderful links course, a true test without the almost inevitable wind and rain. The pro-shop welcome is as friendly as any I have experienced and with a great hotel and restaurant on site a day or two to this part of Ireland is a special treat. Like all good links courses, the bunkers are brutal but the greens hold and run true. The practice facilities are somewhat limited but apart from this there is little I'd change.
