The Farnham Estate Golf Club in County Cavan, designed by Jeff Howes, is a stunning parkland course spread over 500 acres of rolling countryside and dense woodland.

The two nines at Farnham Estate Golf Club, in County Cavan, are quite contrasting in nature. The gentle, but challenging journey on the front nine explores the undulating meadows of this magnificent estate, while the back nine is a more vigorous test of golf, travelling through denser more rugged woodland. The course opens with a gentle par 4 but from the second onwards, you can expect to have every aspect of your game tested to the limit.

Bunkers are not in plentiful supply at Farnham, but each one is very well positioned and, in the main, quite large and flat. They are not manicured as one might expect, but aesthetically natural, which is the overriding feeling of the whole estate. The greens are a near perfect texture and allow for a wide variety of possible pin positions, facilitating the enjoyment of all categories of golfer. The contours are interesting but sensible.

This par 72 course contains a good mix of holes. Many golfers will no doubt find the second quite a long par 4, while the 14th is a drivable one, especially if the wind is in your favour. Only time will tell what the signature hole will be at Farnham; the numerous possibilities include the 2nd, 10th, 15th or 16th. The course designer’s own favourite is the fourth, requiring a slight draw off the tee between two large oak trees, opening up to a well-guarded green with water behind and to the right.

A meandering stream and no less than seven lakes are both features of this parkland spread, as well as ancient trees, a fairy fort, a wishing well, lots of wild garlic, and indeed its fair share of wildlife.
