Gold Coast Golf Club

3-star: Good course – an enjoyable test for your game.

Est. 1939

Gold Coast Golf Club is home to another wonderfully scenic and challenging 18-hole course bordered by the Atlantic Ocean. Stunning views onto Dungarvan Bay, the Irish Sea, Helvick Head and the Comeragh Mountains abound. The original nine-hole course dating from 1939, was recently extended to 18. The mature woodland stretches of the original nine are now intermingled with the relatively more open and longer holes of the newer nine, forming a challenging test for golfers of all levels.

There are several excellent holes along the seashore, although when the wind is blowing hard, you'll probably be wanting a bit more shelter than some parts of the course afford. The Dungarvan lighthouse stands impressively at the far end of the course, skirted by the 7th, 8th and 9th holes.

Stay & Play at Gold Coast GC: onsite accommodation available, see Where2Stay section below.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.

Golf Son Gual

Golf Son Gual is home to a course frequently rated the No.1 layout on the holiday island of Mallorca. Opening for play in 2007, this Thomas Himmel design combines the openness of a links-style layout with the stylish bunkering and not infrequent water hazards more typically associated with parkland courses.

Son Gual is located just a few kilometres from Palma (Mallorca). Palma's Old City shows clear influences from the city's Arab past.
