Ireland’s finest parkland course and familiar to all golf fans for the memorable 2006 Ryder Cup. Water is a near-constant threat on this Arnold Palmer creation, nowhere more so than on the closing stretch where staying out of the River Liffey is the name of the game on both 16, with its virtual-island green, and 17.

Panellists’ comments: “The holes flow well around the lakes and the River Liffey”; “Good course in a lovely tranquil setting”
