Doonbeg goes into receivership

One of Ireland’s premier golf resorts has gone into receivership.

Luke Charleton and David Hughes, of EY Ireland, have been appointed Receivers to The Lodge at Doonbeg and Doonbeg Golf Club in Co Clare, Ireland.

Doonbeg Golf Club opened in 2006 with a high profile Greg Norman designed Links golf course that quickly earned a reputation as one of the best and most beautiful golf courses in Ireland.

The par 72 links spans 1.5 miles of crescent shaped sand beach and follows a natural route between epic sand dunes. There are views over the Atlantic Ocean on 16 of the 18 holes and its signature par three 14th hole sits on a rugged plateau surrounded by wild sea grasses and bordered by crashing waves.

At just 111-yards the hole draws comparisons with the famous 7th hole at Pebble Beach Golf Links in California.

In a statement issued last week, the Receivers said the Resort will continue to trade as normal, that all employment will be maintained and there will be no change in the status of members of Doonbeg Golf Club.

“There will be no disruption to services as a result of the appointment, events booked will go ahead as scheduled, and all deposits and gift vouchers will be honoured,” stated Mr Charleton

Interest in the property has already been expressed and the Receivers are hopeful that the business can be sold as a going concern.
