About this title


In search of the world's best golf vacation, Michael Palmer took one month and traveled 2,200 miles circumnavigating Ireland, playing almost four dozen golf courses along the way. While Ireland is famous for golf, most people don't know that Ireland has nearly 1/3rd of the world's "links" golf courses. These are the courses on the coast, with high sand dunes, no trees, marram grass rough... and sweeping views of the pounding sea. On this recent trip, Palmer played every one of Ireland's full-size 18 hole links courses... and ranked them all from top to bottom. He found many undiscovered gems that are rarely covered in the mainstream press... and found several famous courses that survive on reputation alone, and are not worth the price. Palmer also uncovered dozens of travel secrets: when to go... what to bring... how to safe as much as 50% off the regular fees... just to name a few. And he met dozens of local characters along the way, who shared the history of these great courses. Secrets of the Irish Links will help you take a great Irish golf vacation... and will introdce you to the men and women who kept the game going in Ireland over the past century, when the country was one of the poorest in the developed world.
