Located in the east of Ireland within County Kildare is Bodenstown Golf Club. The club here is home to two great golf courses and the setting is out of this world. Nestled near to the Dublin Mountains the location is as scenic as it is tranquil here yet the bustling metropolitan centre of Dublin is only just over 30 km away to the East of the site making this a great destination for those wanting the best of both worlds.
Of the two courses here the Old Course, funnily enough, was opened first back in 1973 and was designed by the late, great Irish favourite Eddie Hackett who throughout his full life worked on many courses across Ireland including those at the Hollystown and Malahide golf clubs which can be found in nearby County Dublin.
The Old Course is made up of 18 holes which have a par of 72 and measures some 5572 metres from the yellow tees. It is of a parkland style and the features of this course are dominated by the mature wooded landscape here and include wide fairways and expansive greens making this a course that can be enjoyed by players of most skill levels.
With regards to the facilities here, they are fair and players should find most installations that they will need so as to meet their basic golfing needs. The club has a resident professional who offers a number of golfing clinics as well as coaching and tuition so as to help players to improve and refine certain aspects of their game.
Green fee rates for this course are very reasonable and offer good value for money. As the Old Course, or Bodenstown Course as it is sometimes referred to, is the older of the two it is a little more expensive than its contemporary but is still very reasonable. Tee time availability for visitors here is fair and there should be a time to suit all if players are willing to avoid peak times.
Road links to the club are good and thanks to its proximity with Dublin access here from much of the rest of Ireland as well as Northern Ireland and further afield is good. Accommodation options in and around the local area are also good however most visitors are likely to stay in Dublin and commute here as the capital has so much to offer.

Average rating obtained byThis rating for Bodenstown Golf Club. is the average of 1 ratings obtained from www.golfshake.comVery good course. They have done some drainage works which have improved the fairways. The fairways themselves bordered with lots of trees, so don't slice your shots. Some very tricky par 3's at the back of the course really keep things interesting. Could do with some more water features and more thoughtful placing of the bunkers to guard the greens better. Overall, excellent. You really feel like you can get lostion in and superb value for money.
