Where2Golf says: 

Enniscrone Golf Club: It took a while for Enniscrone to join the other standard bearers of great links golf in the west of Ireland. But that day came in the early 1970s, when Eddie Hackett tore-up the existing nine-hole layout to create a fabulous new 18-hole course. Hackett's major intervention was followed-up in the late 1990s by Donald Steel, who added another nine holes, with six of them pushing deeper into the towering dunes.

Laid out across 400 acres of magnificent duneland, Enniscrone now boasts a fine pure links courses, with an enjoyable nine-hole course for the slightly less adventurous. Set between the Atlantic Ocean and the beautiful Moy estuary, the layout embraces flatter land by the estuary as well as towering dunes nearest to the seashore.

With excellent design work courtesy of Messrs Hackett & Steel, you'll enjoy many challenging holes, superb greens and breathtaking views. No wonder that local and visiting golfers alike feel there is something rather special about this wonderful west coast layout.
