Playing the Old Course at Lahinch just a week before winning the 2009 Open Championship, Stewart Cink came away smitten with the club. The "first 10 holes at Lahinch are some of the coolest links holes I've ever played," Cink said. His comments only solidify Lahinch's status among the top links golf courses, not only in Ireland, but in the world. Phil Mickelson rates Lahinch among his all-time favorite links layouts. Lahinch is a traditional, out-and-back links and is a true classic; you'll relish every moment, especially the unique challenges of the par 5 4th followed by a blinding par 3 amid the dunes.
