This Jack Nicklaus Signature Design is set in a world of its own on a glorious country house estate an hour or so from Dublin. Magnificent beech and oak specimens line the pristine fairways, and water is a regular feature and indeed adversary, particularly on the closing two holes where you simply must not go left.

Panellists’ comments: “Arguably the best test of parkland golf in Ireland”; “Immaculately presented”; “Idyllic parkland experience”
