Thinking of planning a golfing trip to Ireland? We bet all of the classic golf courses like Lahinch Old, Ballybunion Old, and Royal County Down are all on your list of places to play. Whilst the classics are classics for good reasons, Ireland is home to many other fantastic golf courses that are truly hidden gems. Here we will take a look at seven of Ireland’s less famous golf courses that are magnificent, yet often overlooked by visiting golfers.
The Magnificent 7
The golf courses that make up the magnificent 7 are all located on the Wild Atlantic Way route of Northwest Ireland. They are some of the best golf courses in the country in terms of both their designs and spectacular scenery. Another reason why they are considered ‘magnificent’ is that the green fees are much cheaper than some of the more sought after Irish gold courses. Below we have taken a closer look and what makes these seven golf courses so great.
