Perched on one of the most North Easterly points of mainland Ireland in County Louth is Greenore Golf Club and its golf course. Jutting out on the Cooley Peninsula this is a very picturesque course and offers views over the stunning Carlingford Lough and on towards the shores of Northern Ireland. Further views of the nearby Slieve Foy can be seen from here as both the course and club lie at its feet.
The club here has a long and rich history and was originally formed in 1896 and, at first comprised of 9 holes. It was further extended to 18 holes back in 1899 and has played host to a number of prolific players such as Harry Vardon and James Braid over the years.
Of a unique style, this course has an interesting mix of some links style holes as well as some parkland style ones which combine to create a very exciting course. Its 18 holes measure some 6078 metres from the championship tees and have a par of 71. Features here include a number of elevated tees, undulating terrain and mature woodland lining some of the fairways. The signature hole is definitely the 14th, this par 3 hole is also referred to as the “Pig’s Back” and is a real test of nerve for even the most accomplished of players.
Facilities here are housed in the pavilion style clubhouse and include a welcoming bar and restaurant for players to enjoy after their rounds. There is also a well-stocked professional shop which is staffed by PGA professionals who can offer coaching, tuition and lessons by prior arrangement. Practice facilities include a driving range as well as a chipping and putting green for players to enjoy.
Tee times for visitors to this course are somewhat restricted and tend to fall on weekdays as weekend availability is rather restricted. Green fee rates here are very reasonable and offer good value for money with a number of discounts and offers usually available. Both tee time availability and green fees change depending on the season too.
Getting to the club from much of the north of Ireland as well as Northern Ireland is relatively straightforward and the capital Dublin is just over 100 km to the south of the area;from there further transport links are much stronger. There a number of accommodation options in and around the local area which should appeal to most visitors’ tastes and budgets.

Gem20/11/2016this review is the subjective opinion of a GOLFBOO user and not of GOLFBOO S.LThis is a brilliant course. It's very unique in that it's neither parkland or links. It's flat and little brooks run from the mountains through the course to sea. Thankfully every time I have played the weather has been good - would be tough in the wind. Warrenpoint on the other side of the lake is good but this is better. If you get a chance play it - you won't be disappointed!

Average rating obtained byThis rating for Greenore Golf Club. is the average of 3 ratings obtained from www.top100golfcourses.co.ukI have played Greenore on several occasions now. I'm surprised it's not rated much higher on the list. The 6th par 3 is one of the finest holes I've played. The elevated tees on the old train line for the 6th 7th 8th and 12th are amazing. I love the 2nd and 10th shared green. The 14th is a beast of a hole. The tee show on the 17th through trees 180 yards away is tough. I dont think i have played the same clubs on the par 3 two times in a row because of the changing wind. This is a course that makes you think. Well worth a visit.
