Since 1894, Portmarnock Golf Club has welcomed the world’s greatest players to the hallowed links peninsula. Early legends like Harry Vardon and John Ball all played a role in bringing Portmarnock Golf Club to prominence. During the War Years, golfing professionals like Bobby Locke and Henry Cotton competed and won various Championships at the club. And of course, the first super star of modern golf Arnold Palmer was instrumental with Sam Snead in 1960 with their victorious Canada Cup win, again elevating the links’ reputation at a global level.
