Lahinch Golf Club, in the town of Lahinch on the northwest coast of County Clare in northern Munster, is situated approximately thirty kilometers northwest of Ennis. Lahinch, which is open to the public and is often referred to as the St Andrews of Ireland, features two 18-hole courses, the newer Castle Course, and the famous Old Course links.

In 1894 Old Tom Morris designed the original Old Course and upon completion, he believed that Lahinch was the finest natural links course he had seen. Two of Morris's creations were the famous Klondyke (4th) and Dell (5th) holes, which are still in play today.

The first major redevelopment of the Old Course took place in 1907 under the direction of Charles 'Mo' Gibson before 1927 saw one of the greatest golf architects of the twentieth century, Dr. Alister MacKenzie, submit a design for a new layout.

Facing several new challenges in the last decade of the twentieth century, Lahinch enlisted Dr. Martin Hawtree who modernized the layout, providing a top-class championship golf course. The new 6,950-yard par 72 layout utilizes the sand dunes closer to the Atlantic Ocean and the redesigned course has met with wide acclaim and is consistently ranked in the World's Top 50 courses.

The club provides caddies and also has a well-equipped Pro shop as well as the Martin Hawtree designed Short Game Academy and Indoor Performance Centre. Finally, the clubhouse bar and restaurant at Lahinch Golf Club offers members and visitors a magnificent facility in which they can relax and unwind before or after their round.
