Golf in Galway

For anyone visiting Ireland, County Galway is one of the top destinations to visit. There is so much to see that one could spend nearly an entire holiday just visiting the sites in and around the county. Take a drive out to Connemara, go island hopping  on the Aran Islands, learn some Irish abd go native in the Gaeltacht, enjoy the ‘craic’ and listen to traditional Irish music in many Galway city pubs or simply take a stroll on the promenade in Salthill and watch the sun go down on Galway Bay. There always seems to be something on, especially in the summer months, where every town and village has its own festival or market. The climax of this is in July when the Galway Arts Festival and the Galway Horse Racing Festival take place and draw in huge crowds to the city.

Golfing in Galway is a very rewarding experience too with many different types of courses: links, morland, parkland, etc. There are many busy members clubs to choose from and the atmosphere is distinctly laid back and informal.

Connemara Golf

Golfing in Connemara is as diverse & inspring as the landscape it occupies.There are only four courses but each brings their own individual challenges.

Connemara is the name given to the western portion of County Galway, which lies between Lough Corrib and the Atlantic and is one of the most popular destinations for tourists to come to. Situated in the west of Ireland, it is one of the most scenic areas on the island. It’s craggy mountain peaks, expansive sandy beaches and laced network of lakes exemplify the peaceful solitude and rugged beauty of the west.  It has its own unique culture and much of the area, stretching from Bearna to Carna,  is Irish speaking.

Bearna Golf Club

Situated only 5 miles from Galway city this is located at the gateway to Connemara. This Galway golf club is cut right out of the surrounding landscape and is, in fact, the only moorland golf course in Ireland. 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. With stunning views of Galway Bay, the Aran Islands and the Burren, and the smell of the bog and the gorse which lingers in the air, this is a course which will ignite your senses. 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.

Connemara Isles Golf Club

Connemara Isles Golf Club is located in the heart of the Conamara Gaeltacht. This distinctive island
9 hole course offers a unique opportunity to play golf on the edge of the Atlantic ocean while enjoying
the breathtaking views of Cill Chiaráin Bay, Cnoc Leitir Móir and Cnoc Mordáin. Established in 1993, this charming and challenging course is set in tranquil links at Eanach Mheáin. The flora and fauna of the course provide a colourful backdrop to a magnificent golf course. A causeway from the mainland brings an island into play where ocean inlets and rocky outcrops provide natural hazards demanding steady nerves. One of the highlights of Connemara Isles is the clubhouse…the only thatched clubhouse in Ireland!

Oughterard Golf Club

Only 25km from Galway city Oughterard Golf Course comprises 18 championship holes that are lined with mature native Irish trees, including oak, hazel and birch. It is an excellent test of golf, with numerous water features and sand bunkers, which are strategically placed to protect the par of the course. A lush parklands course featuring traditional limestone walls throughout the property it is situated between Lough Corrib to the east and the Connemara Mountains to the north and north west, providing a truly spectacular setting. The clubhouse, converted from majestic farmhouse buildings, offers visiting golfers every modern facility, including a well-stocked pro shop, a first-class restaurant and a homely and welcoming bar.

Connemara Golf Club

Although it is a long drive out from Galway city Connemara Golf Links – also called Ballyconneely Golf Club – mixes the stunning natural and unique beauty of the western Irish landscape and the the skills of a great architect to create a memorable golfing experience. Nestled between the scenic splendour of the 12 Bens mountain range and the rugged Atlantic ocean, this is a test from start to finish. The back nine, in particular, have been acknowledged as the equal to any in the world. A testament to the skill of its designer, Eddie Hackett deftly enhanced the rugged environment to create this dramatic championship course. Situated between the Twelve Bens mountain range and the Atlantic Ocean, the 18 holes are every bit as challenging as they are beautiful, a point driven home by the twisting dog leg on the breathtaking 1st hole. There’s also a newer course, which offers a game along the Atlantic for an exhilarating nine holes.
