Portmarnock is surrounded by water on three sides and is unique in the no two successive holes play in the same direction, thus making judgement of the wind all the more difficult. More important golf tournaments have been held at Portmarnock than any other Irish course. The British Amateur, The Walker Cup and Canada Cup have all been held here. But it is perhaps the Irish Open and the illustrious list of winners at Portmarnock, including Ben Crenshaw, Seve Ballesteros, Bernhard Langer and Jose Maria Olazabal, that most people came to know the Portmarnock Golf Club.
