Located in a county that is known for its excellent golf courses and clubs, the course at East Clare Golf Club really is in fantastic company. Found in County Clare to the West of Ireland other golf courses within the county include those at Lahinch, Doonbeg and Dromoland Castle making this a great getaway destination for golfing enthusiasts who want to try out a selection of courses. 

The course at East Clare was opened in 1997 and was designed by Dr Arthur Spring who has worked on a number of courses within Ireland since he began his efforts in 1989. This quiet course is set in some beautiful Irish countryside and because of this the variety and level of flora and fauna which can be seen whilst playing here is exceptional.

From the yellow tees, this 18-hole parkland style course measures 5386 metres and has a par of 71. Features of this course include a number of lakes and meandering streams, cleverly placed bunkers and a significant presence of mature woodland. Greens and fairways are nicely undulating and create a perfect balance for players. The beauty of this course and the surrounding nature and wildlife are undeniable and players are sure to enjoy a round here. 

Facilities here are fair and players will find basic amenities at this course. With regards to tee times and green fee rates the course and club operate a pay and play policy for visitors and times will be allocated on a first come first serve basis so as to ensure fairness. There are also members here so these obviously receive priority however both the club and course are sure to be able to accommodate most. 

The course here is somewhat secluded meaning that direct road links are quite limited however the city of Limerick is only 33 km to the south of the club and boasts much stronger links for visitors to much of the rest of Ireland.  A good accommodation choice for visitors wanting to stay overnight in the area is the East Clare Golf Village which is home to a number of properties that are available for rent which can sleep up to six people making them great for getaways with friends and family or even for business.

    Good course but bunkers were not much of a hazard. Fairways and greens in good condition. An enjoyable course

    Given that this course was created by locals, without the help of "Big Corporate", is laid out over a bog and is relatively new, this is a pretty reasonable track. It is a little scruffy around the edges, but it is a stern enough test in an area where there are relatively few courses. Water comes into play on at least 8 holes (and all the par threes bar one) so you have to be pretty accurate throughout. Signature holes would have to be the short par three 8th and the 9th where even a long accurate drive down towards the lake which encroaches into the fairway, leaves you no choice but a long second over water, avoiding a large tree. There is no let up on the back nine with ten being a right angle dog leg with water all down the left and OB down the left with a second avoiding the pond and finding an elevated two-tier green. The 17th is a great matchplay par three over water but the 18th is a little disappointing, but make par and you will have done well. Locals are incredibly friendly.
