Fodor's Review

Clinging to the very northwest tip of County Mayo, this is literally the last golf course before you hit Boston. This Eddie Hackett–designed links ducks and dives among towering sand dunes next to what locals call "the wild Atlantic." From the elevated tees and greens you can see a string of Atlantic islands: Inishkea, Inishglora, and Achill. But don't be distracted by the amazing views—you'll need all your wits about you to beat the constant challenge of the high winds.
