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.

Sutton Coldfield Golf Club: located to the north of Birmingham, occupies a small corner of the wonderfully expansive and natural environs of Sutton Park.
