Connemara is located between the Twelve Bens Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean, in one of the most splendid settings imaginable. Originally opened as an 18 hole venue, Connemara Golf Links has offered 27 holes of sublime links golf since 2001. The course was designed by renowned Irish course architect, Eddie Hackett and completed by Tom Craddock. And while Connemara Golf Club may be located on one of Ireland most westerly tips, make no mistake that it is worth the trip. Like the many other great links of the west and northwest, Connemara remains a largely underplayed (if not hidden) gem but its quality is not for debate. As renowned golf writer and commentator, Peter Alliss said “if there were a course like this on the west coast of England, it would surely host the British Open.” .
