The Island Golf Club

Located across the estuary from Malahide but accessed from the N1 and Donabate. The Island Golf Club was established in 1890 and, surrounded by the sea on three sides, it enjoys a unique setting. Until as recently as 1973 the club was approached by boat from Malahide across the estuary. Fred Hawtree, Eddie Hackett and more recently Martin Hawtree have made course design improvements, ensuring that the true nature and character of the links are enhanced.
