Situated on the West Coast of Ireland is the stunning and historical Connemara Isles Golf Links golf course. Its blessed location truly is beautiful and offers some astounding views of the nearby Cill Chiaráin bay. Found in County Galway, the course is secluded and serene and is a fantastic location for those wanting to enjoy a peaceful round of the sport that they love.
The course itself was opened in 1993 and was the combined design efforts of the legendary Tom Craddock and Pat Ruddy who between them have designed many courses including those at Wicklow and Donegal. Although the course is relatively modern the distinctive clubhouse here dates back to the mid-19th century.
Measuring 2405 metres from the white tees this 9-hole course has a par of 35. This fine example of an Irish links course has been created using the best that Mother Nature has to offer and the man-made influence here is minimal but the result is excellent. Simple, rugged terrain and undulating greens provide all the challenge players here will need and the routing of the course works fantastically.
Facilities at the club are fair and are housed in a very distinctive clubhouse complete with thatched roof which is cited as the only clubhouse in the English speaking world to have a roof of said material!
Green fee rates for this course are very reasonable considering its beautiful nature and the enjoyable play that can be had here. Tee times at this course are generally revealed by the more traditional means of communication but should have a fair availability due to the secluded and somewhat remote location of this course and club which, for many, add to its appeal.
Getting to the club can be quite a lengthy process as it is in a rather quiet and secluded spot which make for a great course but not so much for easy access. That said however it is often quoted by the visitors here that the journey is definitely worth it. As it is so secluded it is the norm for visitors to stay overnight near to the course so as to make the most of the area and there are a number of local accommodation options which should appeal to most tastes and budgets.

Average rating obtained byThis rating for Connemara Isles Golf Club. is the average of 2 ratings obtained from www.top100golfcourses.co.ukI played this course during the last week in Sept 2013. It was, without doubt, the most enjoyable experience I've had on a golf course for many a year. Can't understand how 'unknown' this little course is. Of course it helped that the weather on the day was a glorious mixture of blue skies, gentle breezes, low tides and dry fairways. Connemara, and most particularly the surrounding mountains, inlets and stone-ringed fields, were a backdrop to a great day. As was the welcome in the bar afterwards. And I didn't lose as many balls as others had warned. So as to share my experience, I posted a gallery of images taken on the day, and available on the Flickr site at: http://flic.kr/s/aHsjL8PWcn Happened to be down in the Clifden area at the end of February 2014, after one of the worst winters in many a year. While half the country was still under water, I decided to drop in here again on a whim. Yea, a different kind of 'fun' this time! Gale-force winds blowing, occasional 'soft/waterlogged' fairways, threatening rain squalls all around . . . . but the Gods smiled on me, and the rains skirted the area. Mind you, this time I lost more than the usual quota of balls. If you're ever in the region, make a spacial effort to play this course.
Average rating obtained byThis rating for Connemara Isles Golf Club. is the average of 2 ratings obtained from www.golfshake.comStunning course, views are unparalleled, if you\\'re from the city this will be a treat. Water on nearly every hole. Par 3 3rd is a gem hitting over the ocean to a natural island, you will not find a layout like this anywhere else. Short but very tricky, a plotter\\'s course, cannot be overpowered. With some investment this could be a remarkable course but it is still a gem
