Par 72, yardage 6,699. Lahinch has often been described as the 'St. Andrews of Ireland'. It's a traditional out and back links course which sits on the Atlantic coast and is a favorite with many of the thousands upon thousands of golfing visitors who flock to the Emerald Isle year after year. Phil Mickelson, for one, is a big fan of the Lahinch Old Course, which was originally designed by Old Tom Morris before being tweaked by Dr. Alister Mackenzie. The holes are memorable from start to finish, though many single out the fifth as their favorite. A par-5 that measures 483 yeards, the second shot is played over a sand dune and anything better than a par here is a real bonus.
