Headfort Golf Club is based in Kells, another of the impressive golf courses to be found in County Meath, Ireland. The club is just 40 miles away from Dublin City Centre, and is home to two exquisite 18 hole golf courses.

The old course stretches over 5973m of parkland with a par of 72. Although the layout of this course is not as complex as its newer counterpart, it does not make it any less exhilarating to play. The first 9 holes were opened in 1930, and was extended to 18 holes in 1956.

Green Fees for the old course are only slightly less than the new course, with various discounts available, including an early bird discount.

The clubhouse at Headfort boasts a restaurant with one of the most extensive menus around, catering for everything from breakfast to Sunday lunch. The pro shop also has an excellent range of products to provide you with everything you might need for a round at Headfort, as well as a customising service for your golf equipment.

Buggies, electric and pull trolleys, golf clubs and shoes are all available to hire from the club on your arrival. Coaching is also available from the onsite professional at an extra charge, provided it is booked in advance.

Headfort Golf Club has an extended practice area designed to be used by several people at once with disturbance, including putting, pitching and chipping greens, as well as a practice bunker, offering each player ample opportunity to warm up adequately before each round, while getting a taste of the skills they will be required to utilise during their game.

The weather in County Meath is typical of Ireland, with occasional strong winds and light showers to be expected, adding to the challenge of your round without preventing gameplay. There are several other golf courses in the same area as Headfort, which you can find in the section below this description.

    What a great complex! Easily the best I have played and little known. Played 36 holes on my visit. Two very different courses. The wild life alone is worth it. The weather was not great but it didn't matter. Highly reccommend.

    Der New Course ist ein Genuss. Wer in der Gegend um Kells ist, sollte unbedingt diesen Platz spielen. Mit 5 verschiedenen Abschlägen lässt sich der Platz für Jedermann/frau spielen. Sehr abwechslungsreicher Kurs mit viel Wasser, Auf und Ab und schönen landschaftlichen Highlights. Auch das Greenfee mit 40 € in der Woche ist für diesen Platz einfach klasse.
