The European Club – A top pick on Ireland Golf Trips

The European Club sits on a dramatic seascape setting on the East Coast of Ireland approx 35 miles south of Dublin City and is an ideal inclusion on East Coast Ireland Golf Trips.  The club was set up by celebrated golf course designer and golf writer Pat Ruddy and the European Club is still very much a Pat Ruddy and family run pursuit today as it is owned and operated by Ruddy and his kin.

The European Club is a first rate addition to the world’s links courses, with impressive dunes and almost every hole offering a magnificent ocean view  Top ranking golfers from all over the globe have played the course, the current course record of 67 is held by one Tiger Woods.

Ranked in the top 100 in the world, The European Club is among the best courses in Ireland.  To book tee times or include the European Club on Ireland golf trips please contact us at Old Country Golf & Tours.

The European Club has everything you could want in seaside links golf: towering dunes, salt air, wind, high rough, gorse, nefarious deep  bunkers at every turn, blind shots, visual illusion, and the ocean, not just visible but omnipresent. This is one dramatic piece of land. But in addition to the natural grandeur of the European Club, it’s a great routing.
