Home to The Smurfit European Open, The Smurfit Course boasts a unique ‘inland links’ design with fairways ebbing and flowing like the babbling River Liffey.
The Smurfit Course is a surprising links style course which forces players to think on their feet. With dramatic landscapes, dune type mounding throughout and meticulously contoured putting surfaces, the Smurfit Course is one of the greatest developed inland golf courses in Ireland. This assists in making the course into a true championship golf course, with many vantage points for spectators to view the golf professional at work. In essence, the Smurfit Course is entirely different from The Palmer Ryder Cup Course located just across the River Liffey.
Golfers state that it is almost impossible to make a comparison, such is the difference in experience. With a combination of doglegs skirting the water’s edge on the 5th and 6th hole, leading up to the almighty 7th ‘Swallow Quarry’ hole, The Smurfit Course is guaranteed to entice and challenge even the most avid of golfers whilst leaving a lasting impression with golfers worldwide.
