Corballis has the honour of being the only public links in Ireland. It lies next door to the mighty Island Golf Club, even sharing some of the same dunes. It may only be a par 66 (seven par threes and only one par five), but this is tremendous fun. It is also an ideal introduction to links golf.
Stretched along the coastline near Donabate, with views to Howth and Ireland’s Eye, there are several excellent holes over well-shaped dunes. The new holes (4 to 7), designed by Ron Kirby in 2009, are the most thrilling: two cracking par threes and two short, testing par fours. There’s nothing flashy here, but you’ll find it hard to beat Corballis for value.
