Where2Golf says: 

Trump International Golf Links, Ireland: Originally known as Doonbeg Golf Club, then as Doonbeg Resort, this luxury hotel and golf links development is now part of the expanding Trump Golf collection. Although not quite as revered as its older "siblings" in Ballybunion and Lahinch, Doonbeg still offers a wonderful links golf outing, and some of Ireland's most memorable oceanside holes.

Greg Norman's design captures all the natural splendour of an impressive line of sand dunes. From the tops of the sandhills, you are afforded wonderful views of Shanahan's Strand (beach) and Doughmore Bay. The classic links layout incorporates many revetted (sod-faced) bunkers, complementing others that were shaped by nature itself. One of the more mischievous sand traps makes an appearance in the middle of the 12th green.

Caddies are recommended on your first (and maybe subsequent) visits, with some driving lines from the tees not immediately obvious. The dangers lurking at three relatively short par-3s are clear enough to see, but that doesn't make these tricky holes any easier to play. With 5-star luxury accommodations onsite, Trump International in Doonbeg has become one of the West of Ireland's most sought after Stay&Play venues - especially for those with a little depth to their pockets.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game. It is arguably the best of the country's more northerly layouts, together with Lauswolt (50 km away to the north-west).
