Nestled in County Wexford in the South East of Ireland is the golf course at Enniscorthy Golf Club. Located near to the town of Enniscorthy itself, which is the second biggest in the county, it has plenty to offer to visitors in terms of attractions and places of interest such as Enniscorthy Castle and St Aidan’s Cathedral which are both steeped in history.

The course here was opened for play in 1977 and its current design is the combination of efforts from a number of revered designers. Said designers of this course include the infamous, Irish favourite Eddie Hackett as well as Jeff Howes and Pat Ruddy who between them have designed many golf courses across the globe. 

Of a parkland style, this 18 hole course measures 5790 metres from the yellow tees and has a par of 72. Features here are very natural and the greens keepers here are constantly trying to maintain and improve the excellent ecological microsystem here which they have created. Wildlife is in an abundance throughout the course and has been fused brilliantly with the course and its features, expect lots of mature trees and naturally occurring water features. Overall this is an enjoyable course with a good amount of challenge and one that is definitely a must play for those who appreciate wildlife and nature as it is not uncommon to see a number of animals when playing here.

Facilities at Enniscorthy are excellent and include a bar and restaurant area for players to enjoy which are housed in the clubhouse. Also there you will find showers, lockers and changing facilities and it is possible to hire a number of items from here also including buggies, clubs and trolleys. Practice facilities are also good here and there is a driving range as well as putting and chipping green on which players can hone their skills. 

Tee time availability for visitors here is somewhat restricted however there should be a time to suit all if booked far enough in advance. Weekend availability is very restricted however and weekdays are the best time for visitors. Green fee rates are good and offer good value for money, there are a number of discounts and offers available to play here too which offer even better value for money. 

The club is well connected to much of the rest of the country by road and the nearby transport hub of Wexford has stronger links to further afield. There are a number of accommodation options in and around the local area and the club has well-established links with a number of providers.

    Nice little track this one...It's a parkland course with a good mixture of holes. Some are very tight and some are generous...I think this had something to do with the age of the holes as a few holes were added after the original design. The views of the surrounding coutryside are great and reminiscent of parts of Scotland.Clubhouse wasnt the best I have ever seen but everyone there was extremely friendly which I suppose is the norm in Ireland! All in all definately worth a crack if you're in this neck of the woods.

    The place is in a proper state of maintenance. Somewhat annoying, I find the 4 or 5 blind holes. The place is overall quite short, what struck me however contrary to. A really great and impressive alley (signature hole) is missing.
