The Championship Parkland Golf Course at Ballinrobe Golf Club is considered by some, including Padraig Harrington, to be one of the finest in Ireland.

A mature 300 acre estate provides the setting for an ever evolving, continuously maturing, magnificent championship parkland golf course. A 250 year old Estate House and some of its original farm buildings, have been carefully and tastefully renovated to provide modern clubhouse facilities. In the words of Padraig Harrington – “This must be the finest championship course in the West of Ireland, The par threes, in particular, are a delight. My favourite hole is the fifth which has a marvellous green inset into the River Robe. The tenth hole is a hole which the professionals will love, with its island green needing a very precise choice of club."Why not experience the challenge of this magnificent parkland course for yourself

Located at the gateway to Connemara in the Gaeltacht, with commanding views of Galway Bay, the Burren and the Aran Islands, this West of Ireland golf course is only five miles from Galway city. Built on Connemara moorland it is a high scenic area with features and colours and plant and animal life that you won’t find elsewhere. The smell of the bog and the gorse which lingers in the air, this is a course which will ignite your senses. Wonderful characteristics of gorse bushes, ditches, humps and bumps, twists and turns, all surrounded by authentic Irish peat bog, make for a thrilling round of golf. It was carved out of a typical Connemara landscape of granite rock, bog, gorse and heather. The result is a challenging course of outstanding quality and unique character. The design has resulted in generously proportioned fairways, many elevated tee boxes and some splendid carries. Great care has been taken to construct extra large greens with subtle burrows that will test even the best golfer. The final four holes especially provide an amazing finish to a satisfying and memorable experience. Relax in the bar afterwards and soak up the spectacular scenery.

The County Sligo Golf Club also has a challenging 9 hole course and a state of the art driving range in Bomore.

This Bomore course is a lovely challenge in itself while the championship course is one of the great golf challenges of Ireland. The level of difficulty of the course varies with the diverse weather conditions experienced in “The Point”. The course was redesigned by the famous golf architect, Harry S. Colt, in 1927 and continuous improvements have been made over the years to make the County Sligo course, in the words of the great Peter Alliss,“a tremendous test for the highest quality player and great fun for the modest competitor, Rosses Point stands at the very top of the list of Irish courses”.

Enniscrone Golf Club is located on the scenic West Coast of Ireland in County Sligo. Known for having some of the largest dunes in Ireland, the club is situated on a promontory that juts into Killala Bay at the mouth of the River Moy Estuary. This provides Enniscrone with one of the most beautiful settings for the uncompromised playing characteristics of Irish links golf. Since the club’s founding in 1918, its fathers dreamed of expanding their nine-hole course onto Ireland’s most spectacular links land. The dream was realized in 1974, and today Enniscrone Golf Club offers 27 holes of links golf. Here, we believe, you’ll experience some of the best Irish links golf on the Dunes course, or a more serene round on the Eddie Hackett-and Donald Steel designed nine-hole, 3,367 yard, Scurmore Course. Our featured course, The Dunes, is a 7,033 yard, par 73, championship links course, often a venue for National and Golfing Union of Ireland’s top amateur events. The Dunes evolved from Eddie Hackett’s original 18-hole design. The traditional links layout was reconfigured to include six new holes in the seaside dunes. Renowned architect Donald Steel designed the six new holes, and The Dunes was further refined to include four men’s tee boxes to suit golfers at all handicap levels.

Portsalon Golf club was founded by Colonel B.J Barton in 1891. Colonel Barton established the Portsalon hotel and golf links and was very forward thinking in Portsalon becoming one of the founder member of the Golfing Union of Ireland, the oldest golf union in the world.

In 2000, a major redesign of the links was undertaken. Renowned architect, Pat Ruddy was tasked with upgrading the links to keep pace with the modern game. The course was lengthened considerable and nine completely new holes were added.

Founded in 1881, Royal Belfast Golf Club lays claim to the title of the oldest golf course in Ireland. The present course dates back to 1925, when responsibility for the course design and layout at the present location was given to H.S. Colt, the eminent English course architect of the day. With the assistance of Walker Cup player W.A. Murray, Colt produced a course of great charm which provides a true test of golfing skill and enjoys one of the most scenic settings of any in the British Isles with its unrivalled views of Belfast Lough and the Antrim plateau beyond. The course remains much the same today as it was then, a tribute to the enduring excellence of its original design, always meticulously maintained with impreccable greens and groves of rhododendrons and gorse providing a colourful backdrop in spring.

Dunluce Links – Championship Course
The Dunluce Links at Royal Portrush Golf Club ranks amongst the world’s greatest courses. Voted Number 12 in the world by Golf Magazine, it is a masterpiece of golf course architecture. Unimaginable rough and testing greens, combined with the unpredictable weather of the roaring North Atlantic make this course an admirable test for even the most seasoned golf aficionado.
Valley Links
The Valley lies between the East Strand and the Dunluce golf course in Portrush. As its name suggests, the course is situated between the huge sand hills immediately along the Atlantic shore and the higher ground on which the Championship course is laid out. That is not to say the holes of the course are routed over anything like plain, level lying land, far from it, as the Valley has more than its fair share of the humps, hollows and undulations to be found on any links worthy of the name.

Slieve Russell Golf Club

golf@slieverussell.ie
.co.uk
049 952 5090

The natural drumlin valley landscape of West Cavan provided the course architect, Paddy Merrigan, with a blank canvas on which to create a masterpiece. The course has been designed with a certain boldness and sureness of instinct, which has resulted in the development of a truly fine parkland course. Christy O'Connor Snr wrote:

"One of my criteria in judging a golf course is that you get pleasure from it each time you play it. I played the Slieve Russell many times and each time; I can't wait to get back. I can honestly say that there are no weak holes on it, off the back stakes, there are many that will test the best, while all the greens are a tribute to the green keeper."

He rates the second hole (434 yards) with the water coming into play, as a great driving hole, and believes that the back nine have some of the finest holes in Ireland, where water plays an intricate part on holes 11, 12, 13 and 16.The greens have been rated by some as the most impressive element of the design where devilishly tricky putting surfaces present a searching examination of accurate play. The crucial quality of the course lies in the fact that its design is strategic rather than punitive. The intention is not to penalise the golfer who strays off the straight and narrow but to encourage attacking shots by rewarding their success and punishing failure. Typical Cavan terrain of small fields, scrub ditches and poorly drained soil degenerating into a boggy swamp have been transformed into an 18 hole layout of stunning quality, both from a visual and playing perspective.

The golf course at Coollattin has over the years undergone many changes. However, the canvas on which it is laid out is still the same, it still provides us with the same dazzling kaleidoscope of colour with its never ending changes of hue and shade manifested through the four seasons. As Kevin Markham says in 'HOOKED', his recent review of Irish golf courses -'The setting is imperious, with the huge trees watching over your every step of the way, and golf that is serious fun'. Coollattin today provides a sylvan heaven in the quiet backwater of south County Wicklow. We are almost exacly half way betwen Dublin city and Rosslare Europort. We are only sixty miles from Dublin city centre and only an hour's drive from the Loughlinstown roundabout. On our course you will not see housing development, you will not see any roads or hear the rumble of traffic. The only disturbance that you will encounter is the screech of a disturbed cock pheasant or the march past of mallard ducks. We do not boast an ostentacious clubhouse. What we do have is a friendly and caring staff both in our bar and in our restaurant and good home cooked food served at a reasonable cost. If there is a chill in the air visitors and members gather around a log fire to exchange wisecracks and to tell tall tales of golfing exploits.

County Louth Golf Club

041 988 1530

The late Frank Penninck wrote in an article in 1962 in the "Golfers Companion" referring to the Course as "natural unspoilt seaside territory with towering sand hills, murderous rough, and a rating of long holes that call for powerful hitting". In more recent times the "Golf World" magazine was moved to observe: "County Louth is one of the best kept secrets of Irish golf. Sometimes also referred to as Baltray this has to be one of the most enjoyable Links in Ireland and undoubtedly represents superb value. There is not a weak hole on the course and some of the holes merit greatness". The present course was designed in 1938 by the renowned Tom Simpson. The course is laid out in two loops covering some 190 acres with no two holes running in the same direction. The only exception being the 12th and 13th which run along the sea. It speaks highly for Simpson's design that he saw need to introduce only fifty bunkers in the course's defences the rest was taken care of by the natural terrain. The 14th hole is regarded as the signature hole a short par four measuring only 332 yards you can drive all the way to the green and end up taking six or more, wondering what did you actually do that was wrong. The four par threes are superb. Averaging 160 yards it is seldom one will have a good score that does not include a par at each of these. In 1985 the numerical order in which the holes were laid out was slightly altered to accommodate a new starting position. Other than that little has changed from 1938, until 2003 when the firm of Donald Steel and Company undertook a course upgrade under the guidance of Tom MacKenzie, himself an undoubted fan of Simpson's work. The changes although minimal have had a significant impact on the course and with the addition of some new Tees "Baltray" now measures over 7,000 yds thus bringing it in line with the modern game.

There are few places in the world that encapsulate the true spirit of the game of golf like Druids Heath, the mountains, sea and rolling Irish countryside provide stunning vistas throughout your round. The sea breeze calls for shot-making skills and imagination from the golfer. In the words of Pat Ruddy “Druids Heath affords the player the opportunity to stride-out in a place which is invigorating to both body and soul with the ever present sea breezes adding greatly to a sporting challenge, which is quite difficult to concentrate on as the eye wanders eagerly fifty miles out to sea, twenty miles southwards over an unspoiled, rolling pastoral scene to Wicklow Head and inland to the Wicklow Mountains. Dull would he be of soul who would allow a few stray shots spoil a day in such a blessed spot”. Venue for the 2006 Irish PGA Championship, Druids Heath has played host to many leading tour players including double US Open Champion Retief Goosen, Sergio Garcia, Darren Clarke and Ian Poulter.

The European Golf Club

info@theeuropeanclub.com
0404-47415

The links of The European Club was designed by Pat Ruddy who continues after thirty years to calibrate the links to meet the challenges of the modern game allowing the champions of today to express themselves while demanding a cerebral approach for true success. Year after year the work goes on with Ruddy directing design improvements. Few golf courses have had such prolonged attention from their designers with Donald Ross at Pinehurst being an obvious equivalent. The result is probably the best links of them all as it is fitted precisely to the modern game and is never allowed to grow old. It benefits from the constant inputs of one of the most astute designers the game has seen. Ruddy aspired to having a golf course of his own since learning that Jimmy Demaret and Jack Burke were founding a golf course of their own, The Champions Club, in Texas in 1958…..what a great idea! ……and it came to fruition when he surveyed Ireland's coastline by helicopter in search for a classic golf location. There it was at lovely Brittas Bay just 30-miles south of the capital city, Dubin. Golf design has been a part of Pat Ruddy's life since childhood and he has completed about thirty-six projects since gaining his first professional commission at Castlecomer in the Irish midlands in 1969. Along the way he has come to be regarded as the world's leading links designer. Amongst the links he has designed from concept to completion are The European Club, Ballyliffin Glashedy and Rosapenna Sandy Hills. He has impacted substantially at Portsalon (13 holes), Ballyliffin Old ( 7-holes), Rosapenna Old (12 holes) and Donegal (11 holes).

Headfort Golf Club

Established in 1928, Headfort Golf Club is one of the finest parkland complexes in the Country. Boasting 36 holes, both courses have stunning mature trees, many being specimen, which enhance this unique landscape. The idea of creating a new club near Kells, to the North-west of Dublin, was first agreed in 1929 and the Course came into play the following year with nine holes laid out in a section of beautiful parkland leased from the Headfort estate. The Club was then affiliated to the Golfing Union of Ireland in 1930 and celebrated its 75th Anniversary in 2005. In its formative years the Club was well served by a vet and his horse. The local animal doctor, a certain Mr Val Kelly, set his sights on producing the finest greens on the East Coast and worked tirelessly to this end. While the vet is remembered with gratitude and affection, the poor old horse was sold for a mere £18 in 1939, just a few months after the Club bought one of those new-fangled motor tractors. However, with the start of World War II and the shortage of petrol, the loyal horse was once again back on the Headfort fairways!! In 1956 the Course was extended from nine to eighteen holes and the Club reached another milestone in its history when, in 1987, the members bought the Course outright from the then owner of the Headfort estate, a Canadian by the name of Bill Kruger. In 1998 the Headfort Members were given the opportunity to purchase a tract of adjoining land stretching down to and beyond the River Blackwater. This land included two wonderful islands on the river, home to a magnificent Asiatic tree collection lovingly assembled by the former Lord Headfort. Christy O'Connor was then commissioned to design a second 18 holes on this land, making maximum use of its trees, water and natural features, the result of which was simply breathtaking. The Course, which was officially opened to members in 2000, boasts some of the best Par 3's in the Country. Holes 4, 7, 11 and 17 are not only visually stunning, they will test the mental attributes of even the most seasoned golfers. Par 4's like 8, 10 and 18 will call for pinpoint accuracy and long par 5's like that of the 6th and the 14th make this course the complete package. Headfort, now in existence since 1928, is an experience to rival the best in Ireland.

There are no public highways or garden walls to be negotiated here, no gable ends of villas to catch the eye: only giant timber, undulating ground and a stretch of the tree fringed and tranquil river Liffey. “There are massive oaks of several varieties, even evergreens, an avenue of flowering lime trees, lofty wych elms, the largest sycamore in County Dublin, and new plantations introduced in vacant spaces left by old stalwarts which succumbed to winter winds and the ravages of time…” So what is the story of this precious piece of land which the founding fathers of the club, in their wisdom, decided to lease and turn into a golf course in the year 1905.

The K Club, Smurfit Course

sales@kclub.ie
+353 1 6017 200

The best way to describe the Arnold Palmer designed Smurfit Course at The K Club is that of an inland links course. However, its true attributes do not stop there. The course has many dramatic landscapes with dune style mounding throughout. This assists in making the course into a true Championship Golf Course with many vantage points for spectators to view golf professionals at work. This course has played host to some of golf’s most exciting moments. Who could forget the excitement of the 2004 Smurfit European Open when Retief Goosen went on to win just two weeks after taking his second US Open title? Or the closing stages of the 2007 Smurfit European Open, when Colin Montgomerie finally ended his 18-month drought without a trophy and somehow stayed out of the water on the 18th to win the 2007 European Open by just one shot?

It charms, it entices and invariably, brings out the very best in your game. It is unlikely that you will be asked to tackle the course from the championship tees, but this should in no way diminish the excitement of pitting your wits against Arnold Palmer, for, in a sense, this is precisely what you are about to do. Ranked regularly in the top 3 parkland golf courses in Ireland, this Arnold Palmer designed golf haven is a must play ‘badge of honour’ that has hosted the top golf players in the world.

Kilkea Golf Course has been developed in a magnificent setting, beneath the shadows of a 12th century Castle (the oldest continuously inhabited castle in Ireland). It allows the splendour of the Castle to be viewed from every fairway. In constructing this championship course, the designers have cleverly used the River Greese as a natural hazard flowing through the Castle grounds and estate. The combination of this water and a variety of other hazards and interesting greens ensures the golfer playing the course has a considered challenge on his or her hands. You will encounter the River at almost every hole. Two lakes have also been included in the course design, adding to the overall difficulty of the challenge of this royal and ancient game.

Utilising 160 acres of Macreddin Valley, Ryder Cup hero, Paul McGinley chose this designated area of outstanding natural beauty for his first golf course design. Incorporating all the natural elements of the landscape, including statuesque pines, well protected greens, elevated landing areas and a free flowing brook, Paul drew on his years of experience on all the world’s leading courses to showcase his talents. McGinley in conjunction with his co-designer, the renowned Roger Jones, has produced a challenging and visually stimulating, Par 72, 7,173 yard undulating, golfing pilgrimage through the Wicklow countryside. He makes superb use of the natural forestation that provides wonderful definition. The front nine sweeps eastward from the clubhouse. Mature tree-lined fairways synonymous to Macreddin Golf are evident from the opening holes. Panoramic views throughout the valley combined with meandering fairways between gentle slopes and natural contours of the terrain, epitomise the style and splendour of the first nine holes. Moving across the valley the back nine uses all of Macreddin's natural elements, including statuesque pines, well protected greens and elevated landing areas. The free flowing brook weaves its way through the back nine ensuring that decision making is an essential tool each golfer must carry. "My passion for this project has propelled me to be more involved than I ever thought I would be - it's my first baby and it will always be a golf course I want to come back to. I have designed this course to be a very special golfing experience" – Paul McGinley

Within a picturesque curve of coastline, 10 miles to the north of Dublin City and only a 15-minute drive from Dublin Airport, Portmarnock Golf Club sits majestically on a narrow tongue of shallow duneland. And as a measure of its enduring quality, it remains one of the most respected venues in world golf. No other Irish course has been graced by so many distinguished players in a rich history encompassing a broad sweep of significant events. It is where Arnold Palmer and Sam Snead successfully followed its serpentine route through classic linkland on their way to victory in the 1960 Canada Cup. And it is where another generation of Americans, including Phil Mickelson and David Duval, secured a memorable Walker Cup triumph in 1991. These events, along with 19 stagings of the European Tour's Irish Open Championship, reflect the quality of a searching examination across the link's twenty-seven holes. We look forward to warmly welcoming you to play our Championship links, which are rated consistently at the top of national polls, including the Golf Digest rankings.

“Portmarnock is the fairest links I have ever played, which is unusual because links golf by its very nature can be unfair. It is almost perfectly balanced in that it is both challenging and demanding for every level of golfer.....as stern an exam as a professional could wish for from the back tees, and an equally strict test for the more modest player off the medal tees.” Padraig Harrington

Rathsallagh is a course built to championship standard, routed over gently rolling terrain with a number of burns, ditches and ponds to bring water into play at several holes. Mature trees flank most fairways, the construction and positioning of bunkers is quite exceptional and the greens were built to USGA specification. The overall yardage from the back tees can reach 7,200 yards so it is perhaps no surprise to learn that the standard scratch score is two more than the par of 72 – as good an indication as any to the demands of scoring well at Rathsallagh. The Course is beautifully maintained by Course Superintendent Bobby Fisher and his Staff. Mick O'Shea is the Club PGA Professional who keeps a well stocked shop as well as being available to give Golf Lessons and any other golfing assistance that might make your visit even more enjoyable.

Woodenbridge Golf Club

+353 (0)402 35202

Documents regarding the origins of Woodenbridge Golf Club are hard to come by. This is no surprise, considering the first officially documented game of golf in Woodenbridge took place way back in 1884. It was in that year that Col. E.A.R. Bayly offered an invitation to Sir Stanley Cochran of Woodbrook House to field a team of gentlemen for a round in what has become one of Ireland's most beautiful courses. It is understood, however that golf was being played in Woodenbridge prior to this date, but this is the official date of the birth of our club and in 1894, the club was opened to all who wished to play. The first committee was formed in 1897 and with the course now fully commissioned, Woodenbridge joined the Golfing Union of Ireland (GUI) in 1899. This was also the year of our first inter-club competition where we played against Bray Golf Club. Interestingly, the result of that match was never recorded! The course enjoyed many trials and tribulations between that time and now with significant redesigning taking place in 1915 under the eye of Tom Travers, the then renowned Dun Laoghaire professional. It remained a nine-hole course until 1994 when Paddy Merrigan was commissioned to design the additional nine hole layout and extend Woodenbridge to a Par 71, 18-hole course. The new holes were blended seamlessly and agelessly into the fabled original nine holes. He subsequently upgraded the old nine holes in a most sensitive manner so that strong, entertaining golf is provided to balance modern technology with the essence of this historic and beautiful place. J.B. Carr, almost certainly Ireland's most successful amateur golfer, once described the 18-hole course as "Ireland's Augusta and probably the most scenic course in Ireland".

Macreddin Golf Club

Utilising 160 acres of Macreddin Valley, Ryder Cup hero, Paul McGinley chose this designated area of outstanding natural beauty for his first golf course design. Incorporating all the natural elements of the landscape, including statuesque pines, well protected greens, elevated landing areas and a free flowing brook, Paul drew on his years of experience on all the world’s leading courses to showcase his talents. McGinley in conjunction with his co-designer, the renowned Roger Jones, has produced a challenging and visually stimulating, Par 72, 7,173 yard undulating, golfing pilgrimage through the Wicklow countryside. He makes superb use of the natural forestation that provides wonderful definition. The front nine sweeps eastward from the clubhouse. Mature tree-lined fairways synonymous to Macreddin Golf are evident from the opening holes. Panoramic views throughout the valley combined with meandering fairways between gentle slopes and natural contours of the terrain, epitomise the style and splendour of the first nine holes. Moving across the valley the back nine uses all of Macreddin's natural elements, including statuesque pines, well protected greens and elevated landing areas. The free flowing brook weaves its way through the back nine ensuring that decision making is an essential tool each golfer must carry. "My passion for this project has propelled me to be more involved than I ever thought I would be - it's my first baby and it will always be a golf course I want to come back to. I have designed this course to be a very special golfing experience" – Paul McGinley

Founded in 1925, Macroom Golf Club has been a long-standing fixture in Irish golf. At 6,200 yards, the parkland course winds through the banks of Sullane, while taking golfers on a journey of rolling terrain in the shadows of the Kerry Mountains. Mature trees and the River Sullane, which comes into play on the first five holes of the Back 9, add obstacle and beauty to Macroom Golf Club. Located on castle grounds, there is what was once a women's "bathing house" that stands across the Sullane from the 12th hole. The 18th hole is considered a real test by players -- the Par-4 features out of bounds on both sides but does set up the golfer for a birdie opportunity with a well placed drive in the fairway. After a round, guests can relax in the Restaurant at Macroom Golf Club, which features a full-service bar and menu, with what this scribe would suggest as the best Pint in Munster.
