Where2Golf says: 

Galway Golf Club: The first four holes of this, Galway's oldest golf club, are quite tightly grouped together next to the sea. After playing these you cross the coast road (by tunnel) and play the remaining holes in a more parkland setting, where small copses of fir trees and thick gorse bushes will require some accurate work from the tee.

The par-4 10th starts a climb up a long gradual hill to the back of the course, with the 17th and 18th bringing you back down again, always accompanied by lovely views over part of Galway Bay. When the yellow gorse flowers are in bloom in late Spring the whole visual effect is stunning - assuming a modicum of reasonable weather that is.
