Designed by the legendary Harry Colt, and updated about a decade ago by celebrated course architect Martin Hawtree, this championship course has adapted to challenge golfers with its 6,580-metre stretch. Hawtree made several significant changes. Aside from adding 360 metres to the length, he raised and introduced significant contouring to all of the greens. Founded in 1885, the Royal Dublin is also Ireland's second oldest golf club.
