The purpose built Club House and 18 hole parkland course is set against the impressive backdrop of Dromoland Castle. In existence since 1961, our course was designed by the renowned golf architect Mr. Brook L. Wigginton of the USA.
In 2003 the par 72 Dromoland Castle Golf & Country Club championship parkland course was carefully redesigned and updated by world class architect Ron Kirby and Irish golfing legend J.B.Carr. The course plays 6,824 yards for men and 5,242 yards for ladies. It is a captivating test of golf surrounded by the wonders of the Irish Countryside. It has been described as an experience never to be forgotten, presenting the pure challenge of golf to both professional and amateur alike.
The 18 enchanting holes sweep through 450 acres of shady woodland, open rolling pasture, feral lakes, streams and the magnificence of the 16th Century baronial Dromoland Castle presiding over the estate. Yet for all the regal splendour and unassuming nature, it is a course for the 21st Century.
