Kilkenny Golf Club
Kilkenny Golf Club’s popular but challenging layout is a great venue for regional play-offs and tournaments. The course is a parkland layout covered with an abundance of trees, which come into play along the stunning fairways.
Mount Juliet Estate Golf Course
Designed by Jack Nicklaus, the world-famous Mount Juliet Estate Golf Course first opened in 1991. Since then, the course has hosted three Irish Opens and has established itself as a premier venue for all levels of golfer. Mount Juliet has been recently voted Ireland’s Best Parkland Golf Course by the Golfers Guide to Ireland.
Gowran Park Golf Course
Few golf courses in Europe have a horse racing track as a backdrop but that’s exactly what you’ll find at Gowran Park Golf and Race Course. Playing more than 7,000 yards from the back tees, Gowran Park is a parkland golf course, five holes of which run directly through the track. The remaining holes take you on a sensationally scenic journey through the adjacent woodland.
Golf at Mountain View
Situated on a plateau, Mountain View golf course is very rarely affected by weather conditions and is therefore playable all year round. The natural contours of the land have been shaped to provide great golfing conditions. Always in immaculate condition, the course incorporates water features, fairway bunkering and superb sand based tees and greens.
Castlecomer Golf Club
Set in a 200-year old forest, Castlecomer’s beautiful course provides a great test of golf, combined with breath-taking views of the local terrain. With the development of this course completed in 2003, it’s clear to everyone that plays here that Pat Ruddy designed a very special and unique golf course.
