Powerscourt Golf Club

Co. Wicklow

With two championship golf courses set in stunning surrounds at the world-renowned Powerscourt Estate, Powerscourt Golf Club is an immensely popular venue. The 36-hole championship layout ensures availability 7 days a week for societies, add to that friendly staff, outstanding facilities, and excellent dining, and it’s not hard to see why so many societies flock to the Estate each year. The East Course at Powerscourt offers something for everyone, with the traditional mix of four Par 3’s & Par 5’s, and 10 par 4’s. It is an incredibly enjoyable round of golf, with 3 of the par 3’s playing downhill, and the fourth and signature Par 3, the 16th hole, playing over water. The West Course offers a completely different feel and test which makes the course both rewarding and highly enjoyable. The beautiful scenery and greens from the West course will often be talked about by visitors who want a second chance at it. From the opening Par 5 playing from in front of the iconic Powerscourt House, this is a fantastic test.

Co. Kildare

Who could forget the excitement of the 2004 Smurfit European Open when Retief Goosen went on to win just two weeks after taking his second US Open title?
