Welcome to The Royal Dublin Golf Club
Founded in 1885 by Sir John Lumsden, The Royal Dublin Golf Club is steeped in golfing history and presents a stern golfing examination on a truly magnificent links course and is widely accepted as one of the greatest links courses in the world. The links was originally designed by H.S.Colt, the world famous golf architect from Sunningdale.
The Royal Dublin Golf Club has hosted many Irish championships, starting with the Irish Amateur Open back in 1894. The Royal Dublin Golf Club hosted The Carrolls Irish Open from 1983-1985 with Seve Ballesteros winning in 1983 and 1985 and Bernhard Langer winning in 1984. The Club has also regularly hosted the Irish Amateur Close and the Irish PGA.
“Five-star golf”, “a top course”, “challenging but rewarding” are some of the comments made by our visitors after playing the links at The Royal Dublin Golf Club. Our links is a traditional out-and-back design created in 1920 by Harry Colt. In the early 2000's the Club enlisted links design expert Martin Hawtree to make significant changes which have been widely praised and acknowledged by many. After these changes the links remains challenging for today’s golfer.
