Legends of the Game

Perhaps the greatest pioneer in the history of the game, Old Tom Morris, came to the Royal Dublin and played two matches here on June 7, 1894. Also in that year, the Royal Dublin hosted its first championship event, the Irish Amateur Open.

Since then, the greatest golfers in the world – both professional and amateur – have come to play in tournaments at the famed links.

Famous Faces at Royal Dublin

Many personalities have played the Royal Dublin over the years, among them President Clinton, pictured with then Club President Mr Frank McDevitt on the occasion of his visit in 2004.  President Clinton returned a few years later and renewed acquaintance with Anthony Birney our starter, who caddied for him on both visits to the club. Sadly, Anthony developed MND and passed away in 2016, but not before he had received a personal letter from the former President wishing him well.
