The golf course at Gort Golf Club can be found within County Galway in the West of Ireland, it is found near to the border that the county shares with County Clare and the views that can be had from here are truly stunning. The course is perched on the edge of the world renowned Burren landscape and this unique location has views over the nearby Clare Hills and the Sliabh Aughty Mountains.
Originally formed in 1924, the golf club here was previously known as the Rockfield Golf Club. The club as we know it now moved to its current location more recently and the course itself was opened in 1996. It was designed by the renowned Christy O’Connor Jnr, son of the Irish legend, O’Connor Snr and it goes without saying that the course here is a fantastic example of his work.
This is an 18 hole course which measures just over 5700 metres from the white tees and it has a par of 71. Of a parkland style, this championship standard course has a whole plethora of features to both entertain and challenge golfers of all skill levels. Subtle elevation changes and gently undulating terrain can be found here and water and mature trees come into play on a number of the holes here. The 4th, 8th and 17th holes here deserve a special mention and by general consensus are the best holes here.
Facilities at Gort are good and are housed in the modern and welcoming clubhouse. There is a bar and restaurant area which players can enjoy after their rounds. Expect some great views, a relaxed atmosphere and a warm Irish welcome to be had here by all.
Tee time availability for visitors to this course is generally good and there should be a time to suit all. Green fee rates are very reasonable here too for all and there are a number of discounts and offers to be had for players, especially societies. It should be noted that both green fee rates and tee times availability changes depending upon the time both the week and the season and prior booking is recommended so as to avoid disappointment.
Transport links to the club are fairly good and the nearby city of Galway is only 30 minutes away. Transport links from there to the rest of the country as well as the United Kingdom and further afield are much stronger. Accommodation options in and around the local area are plentiful and visitors are sure to find something to suit all tastes and budgets.

Average rating obtained byThis rating for Gort Golf Club. is the average of 1 ratings obtained from www.1golf.euI've played the course at the 28.05.2015 for the first time. From the Club House on a hill, you have a fantastic view of a valley with the golf course. When a green fee of EUR 20,-(!), the value for money was very cheap. Due to the hilly landscape, the course offers challenges and others because of its sloping positions. There is little water hazards. Some cars require very precise shots. Overall, the place is very fair. The State of the center left open no wishes. Often offered fantastic views into the wide Landschaft.Die restaurant menu consists mainly of Snacks.Fazit: the golf course invites you to an eventful round. A detour after Gort is worthwhile in any case.

We booked on spec whilst over in Ireland and it cost Â£15 to play an open comp on a Monday. If you get the chance to play this course it is well worth it. A very good test of golf, nice and tidy with good greens and very warm welcome in the clubhouse.Great value for money, highly recommended even if a bit dificult to find.
