Close to the border between County Carlow and County Wexford towards the East of Ireland is the golf course at the Bunclody Golf and Fishing Club. Nestled in a large estate, the course here can be found in some of the finest Irish countryside and the views that can be had are second to none. This is a true hidden gem on the Emerald Isle and the panoramas of Mount Leinster that can be seen from the clubhouse are breath-taking.

A relatively modern complex, the course here was opened in 2009 and was designed by the well-known Jeff Howes. Considering its young status the course has already received a great array of accolades and has been ranked as one of the best parkland courses in Ireland by a number of publications and sources. 

This 18 hole course measures a hefty 6400 metres and has a par of 72. Features here are extensive and the designer here has really made the most of the surrounding natural environment. Expect undulating terrain combined with a number of natural water hazards such as rivers and lakes and mature trees are commonplace as well. This is an enjoyable test of golf for many that play here and should appeal to many golfers within the spectrum of skills. 

Facilities here are excellent and include a warm and friendly bar and restaurant area in which players are sure to enjoy a traditional Irish welcome. There is also a well-appointed professional golf shop from which players will be able to purchase a great array of international brands. Practice facilities here are excellent and include a golfing academy which features a putting and chipping green as well as a large, outdoor teeing ground and not forgetting an extensive driving range which is fully floodlit.

Green fee rates for visitors to this course are very reasonable and offer great value for money for many players here. Tee time availability is also good and visitors should have no problem in finding a suitable time. Weekend availability is somewhat restricted and overall availability also changes with the seasons. 

Access to the club by road is relatively good and the capital Dublin is around an hour and half away by car to the North of the site. From their onward transport links to the rest of the country as well as the nearby United Kingdom and further afield are plentiful. There are a number of accommodation options in and around the local area which should appeal to most tastes and budgets.

    This place by 2009 was in a super State. The spacious landscaped paths have been integrated very well into the landscape. The best tracks are the 14 to the 18-player without buggy the elevator (!) from the 17 to 18 is recommended. The ascent on foot is a real challenge. On the 18 to play to a small lake where is also the Club House with a good food. Much to recommend... We like to come back!
