Considered by many as the oldest golf course and club in Ireland the Royal Curragh can be found in County Kildare, Ireland. The surrounding area is steeped with history and interest and there is plenty to see and do here. The nearby Curragh Racecourse is famous in the horseracing world and the Curragh Camp, which is where the Irish Army train, can also be found close by.

Dating back to 1852 the club cites itself as the oldest in Ireland and was first laid out by Scotsman, David Ritchie who hailed from Edinburgh. Over the years the course has obviously seen some huge changes and redevelopments however the traditional and classic feel still remains which adds to the appeal for many who wish to play here. 

The course consists of 18 holes which are of a parkland style and measures 5712 from the yellow tees with a par of 72. Strong links with both the military and horseracing shine through when playing on this course and the features here are plentiful. Set out over naturally undulating terrain which boasts some excellent natural drainage the course uses the mature parkland and water as the main features as the number of bunkers on this course stretches to just a dozen. 

Facilities at this club are generous and include a warm, friendly restaurant serving a great selection of dishes which players can enjoy after their rounds. There is also a well-stocked professional golf shop staffed by helpful and knowledgeable PGA professionals. Practice facilities at the club are also good and include a large driving range as well as a practice putting green and bunkers. There are also installations for snooker within the clubhouse for those who wish to try something different.

The green fee rates for this course are very reasonable however they change somewhat depending on the season. Tee time availability for visitors to this course is fair and there should be a general time to suit most however availability can change and reduce quickly so prior booking is highly recommended so as to avoid disappointment. 

Both the club and course are quite well connected by road to much of the rest of Ireland and the capital Dublin is less than 50km away in a North Easterly direction. Thanks to the presence of the racecourse the local area is well equipped to deal with visitors and there are a great number of accommodation options for visiting players to enjoy whilst here.

    A real pleasure to play this flat parkland course where the wire fencing adds an extra feature. This was a beautiful day with the fairways, greens and tee boxes looking at their best. Real friendly service in the club house and restaurant. A most enjoyable golfing and customer experience. (Round played: Jun 2016 - Score: 95 Handicap: 19.9)
