Dublin (30 miles away) between two coastal towns, Wicklow and Arklow. It opened
for play just I the beginning of the nineties, therefore this course does not
have a long history. However the European Club is considered to be an inspiring

sea in the back provides a beautiful set.

Quotes: The Golf Word Expert Review perfectly
summarizes what we need to know about the European Club:



“The 20-hole
eccentric links is only 13 years old yet feels like it has been there
forever. No wonder it’s a regular stop for golf course record holder Tiger
Woods on his pre-Open warm-up Tour of classic Irish links. And no wonder The
European is sitting pretty in 30th spot in Golf World’s Top 100 Courses You
Must Play listing.
