By Kevin Markham


Add to wish list

What makes playing a golf course a great experience? Kevin Markham travelled 11,000km in a 20-year-old camper van, walked 3,500km, lost countless balls, and wore out three pairs of golf shoes to find out. He played and rated every 18-hole course – all 340 of them – to produce the most comprehensive, best-researched guide to Irish golf courses.

For this third edition, Kevin revisited 170 of these courses to assess new holes, new layouts and other changes. The result is dozens of updated reviews as well as new ratings throughout the book. Courses are ranked out of 100, across 8 criteria, such as design, appeal and value for money. This revised, detailed guide is perfect for golfing tourists looking for inspiring and great value courses; golfing societies eager to find somewhere new; and Irish golfers searching for the best this island has to offer.

Written from an amateur golfer’s perspective, the guide focuses on the energy and excitement of playing each course. It gives a true representation of the golf experience and all the information necessary to book your round.
