The European G.C. The European Club is located in tumbling dunes just south of Dublin and it features sweeping sea views from nineteen of the twenty holes. Yes, there are two extra par-3s here and they are in play most days affording the golfer a 20-hole round which includes five holes running very close to the sea. So close that it is common to find players searching for their golf balls on the beach. The bunkers with their walls lined with railway sleepers are quite remarkable and give a brilliantly stark definition to the links and give fair warning to the players regarding hazard locations. 18 holes, 6800 yards, par 71.
