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.
