Skerries Golf course, founded in 1905, is home to an 18-hole parkland golf course located in Hacketstown on the edge of Skerries town, less than six miles from the main Dublin–Belfast road (M1) and just 25 minutes from Dublin Airport.
On a clear day you'll find a magnificent panoramic view of sea and land extending from the Mourne Mountains to Howth and the Wicklow Mountains. The course, with its undulating fairways and mature trees, has a par 73 (74 for ladies); it measures 6116m and 5284m respectively from the medal tees. The course is renowned for its tough opening holes and finishing stretch, with fast greens that offer a fair test for every category of golfer.
In 1971 the course was extended to 18 holes under the direction of renowned Irish golf course architect Eddie Hackett.
