Greg Norman on links golf in Ireland.

Greg Norman has a deep love for Irish golf and the course he designed at Trump International Doonbeg is one of the most popular among tourists every year.

“Without question, golf in Ireland occupies a special place in my heart. It was on links courses much like the ones found here, Turnberry in Scotland and Royal St. George’s in England, that I won two Open Championships.


I also had the good fortune to design Doonbeg Golf Club in County Clare, a links-style course that opened in 2002. Blessed with one of the best pieces of property for an Irish golf course that I have ever seen, my name will be indelibly linked with the golfing lore of this great land. For that, I am honored and humbled.


It was from my 23 visits during the construction of Doonbeg that my love of Ireland and its golf courses swelled. Natural elements shape the land and are central to how the game is experienced in Ireland. That’s what makes this place, and its golf courses, so special.


I encourage you to read about these wonderful courses and discover the exhilaration of golf that awaits in Ireland.”
