Ballinrobe Golf Club's location on a 300 acre estate is an idyllic setting for such a magnificent championship course. The 7,100yd, par-73, course was laid out and designed by well-known architect Eddie Hackett and the contoured greens, which are 80% sand based, are playable all year round.
This inland golf course, which opened in spring 1995, is characterised by lakes at seven of the 18 holes, and is laid out to championship standard. It is set in medieval surroundings, with a 13th-century tower house next to the 10th tee box.
The greens are 80% sand based and the club house is a fully restored 250 year old estate house. The course, with its scenic parkland area, is one which will offer a challenge to any golfer with its mature trees, man made lakes, elaborate fairways and traditional stone walls.
World-renowned golfer Padraig Harrington recently described Ballinrobe Golf Course as "the finest championship golf course in the West of Ireland."
Additional facilities include a 12-bay floodlit driving range, practice areas and pro shop.
