About the Course
The Golf course is situated on the Curragh plains, an area of natural grassland and heath, which has existed as an uncultivated plain for over 2,000 years.
It is one of Ireland's outstanding and best-known landscapes and is the oldest and most extensive tract of semi-natural grassland in the country, with an ecosystem older than most woodlands and as old as the upper peat of the raised bogs.
It is an area of both national and international importance and also of immense archaeological, cultural, environmental and historical significance.
The Curragh has acquired over the centuries, a rich microflora system, evidenced by the wide range of unique grasses and wildflowers found throughout the golf course.
The golf course is situated on land which has been uncultivated since prehistoric times, allowing for the development of the exceptional heathland conditions and the uniqueness of the free-draining soil type and topology.
This unique combination means that the course is playable all year round and is a much sought after venue for visitor groups.
There is an extensive practice area at the Curragh which includes a full 250 yard driving range for which tokens for Range Balls are available from the Pro Shop, golf nets and practice bunkers. It is the perfect place for a pre-round warm up. The Practice Putting Green which fronts the Clubhouse will enable you sharpen this important area of the game while offering panoramic views of the course.
Golf Buggies are available on request and bookings should be made through the Pro Shop. Motorised Golf Trollies are also available and again should be booked in advance like the Buggies.
Should the golf not come up to par then the Snooker Room is available to those seeking other interests. With two full size tables there is ample space to enjoy this time honoured game in comfort.
