Situated towards the south east of Ireland is the golf course at the Callan Golf Club. Found within the county of Kilkenny the site lies around 20 km to the south of the city of Kilkenny itself and there are plenty of places of interest in and around the local area. Said attractions include Kilkenny Castle and the city walls as well as the Old Woollen Mills. The city is also well known for its art, music and festival scene and has a very eclectic mix of inhabitants.

The golf club in question was established in 1929 and has a good member presence. The club and its course are both steeped in history, a fact which is apparent to all that visit the clubhouse and the number of old photographs that can be seen within. It is not noted who designed the course originally however over the years it has matured very well. 

Made up of 18 holes, the course is of the popular parkland style which is commonplace throughout Ireland as well as the nearby United Kingdom. Measuring 5577 metres from the white tees the course here has a par of 71. Features here include gently sloping and undulating terrain as well as a number of cleverly placed bunkers and water features to provide a good challenge for all. 

Facilities at the club are fair and there are a number of items that can be hired from here including buggies and trollies which should help to facilitate play. Local amenities to the club are excellent and staff will be more than happy to direct visitors to locations throughout the area which can provide a good meal and a relaxed drink. 

Green fee rates for visitors here are very good and offer a good value for money golfing experience for all. Visitors are warmly welcomed here throughout the week and prior booking is recommended so as to secure the best tee times for all.

Getting to the club from much of the rest of Ireland by road is relatively straightforward and the nearby larger hubs of Kilkenny, Clonmel and Waterford have much stronger links to further afield. There is a good selection of accommodation options in and around the local area which should be suitable for all visitors’ needs, tastes and budgets.
