Golf: 'Ireland's southwestern coast is home to a pair of the world's most storied Links courses, Bally Bunion and Lahinch. They have come to fruition as championship settings for the game. Between them is a third course - Doonbeg - with a story of its own. Doonbeg's storied seaside dunes were identified by the fathers of Lahinch as early as 1892. Officers of the Scottish Black Watch Regiment, they had searched far and wide for Ireland's perfect coastal site. As legend has it, this dramatic Links Land at Doonbeg was their first choice, but Lahinch was closer to transportation and rail service. Because of 19th century economics, Doonbeg's time would be delayed for another 100 years'. For further details on website addresses, please ask us.
