The European Golf Club is situated just an hour away from Dublin, in Brittas Bay, County Wicklow of  Ireland, and regularly appears amongst the best golf courses in league tables.

The club was founded in 1987 by its designer Pat Ruddy, whose work can be seen at some of the most highly regarded golf courses in Ireland. The course continues to be run by Mr. Ruddy and his family to this day, providing a unique family-feel to the clubhouse.

The course is made up of 18 holes laid out over 6725m of luscious Irish landscape with a par of 71, with magnificent views of the Irish Sea over the lush sand dunes which cover the course.

As is expected of Ireland, the weather is normally cloudy with patches of rain, but these do not normally prevent gameplay as the course was designed with the weather conditions in mind.

There is plenty to do in the area, not only are there several other golf courses but there is also the famous Wicklow’s Gaol and various lavish gardens such as Powerscourt Gardens that are a definite must-see on visiting Brittas Bay.

Green fees are higher than usual in Ireland, and tee times are booked in groups of 4. Ride-on golf cars, pull trolleys and clubs are all available to hire from the club, as well as having a professional shop and restaurant on-site.

There are hotels and B&Bs in the area to suit every requirement , and you will find them underneath the  reviews  section on the left hand side of the page. See what other customers are saying about this course in the above section too.
