Golf World magazine are a huge fan of ranking golf courses, and anyone who enjoys a game of golf will be a huge fan of reading them.
The only thing there are more of in Ireland than golf clubs, are pubs, so when we see a ranking of the very best that this beautiful country has to offer, we check it out, and it seems as though Golf World have done their research. Thanks to Denis Hurley on twitter for bringing this to our attention:
