Spanish Point: Golf as it has been played along Ireland's West Coast for 120 years

SPANISH POINT Golf Club  A little-known and largely unremarked 9-hole course, Spanish Point is located along Ireland's West Coast approximately mid-way between two famous, highly-ranked neighbors: Lahinch (to the north) and Doonbeg (to the south). Spanish Point is built among rugged, hilly dunes overlooking the beach at Spanish Point, scenic and unprotected from the Atlantic weather, be it kind (shown above) or fierce. Spanish Point is no golf resort. It is a local club of considerable age and tradition, built on a coast with a remarkable history. Its amenities are simple and sufficient. Its members and staff are welcoming and devoted to the game, the course, and the location. Spanish Point provides a glimpse at golf as originally played along the Irish seaside. This is no nostalgic theme park. Come to play a quick nine, but leave time for a second nine — like Ireland itself, Spanish Point is hard to leave.

S

PANISH POINT Golf Club is a seaside course which comes within 100 yards of the sea. It

opened in 1896 as a par 27 course, but has been remodeled

over time to its current par-34 configuration. With undulations, hills, and rugged rough, Spanish Point offers variety and challenge. When the Atlantic winds blow, which is most of the time, the course takes on a very different character, especially at the 159-yard, par 3 #9/18, called ‘The Terror’.

Lahinch, Spanish Point is located along the notorious Atlantic (western) coast of Ireland in rural County Clare, about one-third of the way between the southernmost point and northernmost points on the island. And, like Lahinch, the course is both picturesque and challenging. But, unlike Lahinch, Spanish Point is a course for everyone, and at the right price.

DIRECTIONS: 2 miles south of the village of Milltown Malbay on the N67 (8 miles south of Lahinch).

NEAREST HOME AT FIRST LODGINGS: In CENTRAL IRELAND at Killaloe, a lovely town in eastern County Clare — about 75 minutes drive east of Spanish Point.

ANOTHER REGIONAL COURSE OF NOTE:

• Lahinch: Lahinch, County Clare; historic, tough, scenic coastal links Old Course 8 miles north of Spanish Point. Rated #5 on Golf Digest Ireland's "2014 Top 100 Irish Golf Courses" and #41 on Golf Digest's list of "Top 100 Courses Outside of the USA". Expensive, busy — many international players, and restricted by handicap. Second Lahinch course, the Castle Course, is significantly less expensive and crowded, and is not as long or challenging as the Old Course.

Only a few miles south of Lahinch and north of Doonbeg, and with similar terrain, wind, and challenge, Spanish Point doesn't get the crowds, and costs very little per round.


 

Why Go to Spanish Point?

Why drive 50 miles to play golf on a 9-hole public course? There are good reasons:

 

1. Not everyone has the right handicap to get on Lahinch or Ballybunion. Not every golfer wants to pay for the Lahinch or Ballybunion experience. Not every golfer wants to go to the trouble of arranging for a tee-time far in advance and chancing bad weather at Lahinch or Ballybunion. But many golfers would like to experience an Irish links course along the famous Atlantic coast. Spanish Point offers challenging Irish links golf at delightfully low rates, without requiring tee times or handicap cards.

 

2. Close by are beaches, beautiful countryside, and Irish history and culture. Spanish Point itself is one of several suspected landfalls of crews of the ill-fated Spanish Armada, who failed in their attempt to destroy the Elizabethan English Navy. Visit the towering Cliffs of Moher, about 15 miles north, Ireland’s great Atlantic sea wall. Explore the Burren, County Clare’s mysterious moonscape, littered with monuments from prehistory and the Middle Ages. Stop at a pub in Milltown Malbay, a typical County Clare village known for traditional live Irish music in its traditional Irish pubs.
