Mount Juliet Estate Golf Course
The world-famous Mount Juliet Estate Golf Course was designed by Jack Nicklaus and first opened in 1991. In the time since, the course has hosted three Irish Opens and has established itself as a premier venue for all levels of golfer.
Kilkenny Golf Club
The popular but challenging layout of Kilkenny Golf Club makes it a superb venue for regional play-offs and tournaments. The course is a parkland layout with an abundance of trees, most of which come into play along the stunning fairways.
Golf at Mountain View
Because it is situated on a plateau, Mountain View Golf Course is very rarely affected by the famous Irish weather. As a result, this fantastic feast of golf in playable all year round. In this beautifully designed course, 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
This picturesque course is set in a 200-year old forest. Providing a great test of golf, it features some truly 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.
Gowran Park Golf Course
Few golf courses in Europe have a horse racing track as a backdrop. However, 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 giant of 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.
