Trending: Top five Irish golf courses

March 17, 2012

In honor of St. Patrick's day, I've decided to sit down with a pint of Guiness and have a look at some of the best golf courses Ireland has to offer--and then cry a little on the inside because I'm not there. In full discretion, I've pulled these top five Irish golf courses from a list culled on; as hard as it it to trust a site that claims to know everything about everything, they have a list of 10 with full descriptions. But this exercise is about seeing them, so I've pulled videos to coincide with each course to offer you a glimpse of what you're missing, narrated by the beautiful non-regional U.K. diction of Hidden Links. That's the only way to get the full sense of regret for what you're missing.
