Located near to the coast in the south east of Ireland is the golf course at the Courtown Golf Club. Lying within the county of Wexford the site lies only 5 km away from the town of Gorey which has very good amenities to appeal to an array of visitors as well as a number of places of interest and attractions. Thanks to its location near to the coast the area is popular with tourists, particularly during the summer months which makes this a perfect destination for a family golfing break. 

Courtown Golf Club was founded in 1936 and was originally the home to just a nine hole course however the course was extended and upgraded to the full 18 holes in 1974. The specific designer remains uncredited from official sources however it is clear that whoever it was had some excellent gifts in terms of design skill.

Although only a short distance away from the sea the course here is actually of a surprising parkland style. Made up of 18 holes the course measures just under 6000 metres and has a par of 71. Features here include tree lined fairways, cleverly placed water features and intelligent bunkering. The signature hole here is the fourth which is known worldwide for the excellent panoramic views which it offers over the churning Irish Sea. 

The club has good facilities which should meet the needs of all players. Not only is there a bar and restaurant offering a variety of refreshments to players but there are also well-appointed changing facilities to be found in the clubhouse. There is a modest professional shop here and practice facilities include a putting green and practice area. 

Tee time availability for visitors is somewhat restricted however the club hosts a number of open days and competitions throughout the year which are open to all. Green fee rates are very reasonable and offer good value for money for all who play here. 

The club is located near to one of the major through roads connecting the southern areas of Waterford and Wexford to the capital Dublin meaning that road links are good. Due to the popularity of the local area with tourists there is a good selection of accommodation options in and around the local area which should appeal to most tastes and budgets

    Sehr schöner Golfplatz mit vielen alten Baumbeständen. Die Bahnen sind sehr abwechslungsreich und fordern jeden Handicap-Spieler! Der Zustand der Fairways und Greens sind sehr gut. Gespielt am 27. Mai 2015.
