Located in central  Ireland within the county of Laois is The Heath Golf Club and its associated golf course. This excellent golfing facility is located just outside of the county town of Portlaoise and is well situated to receive visitors from across the country. Places of interest in and around the town include an ancient hill-top castle and a large Georgian stately home as well as access to the stunning Slieve Bloom Mountains. 

The foundations of the club here date back to the late 19th century and is one of the oldest in Ireland. Originally known as the Queen’s County Heath Golf Club, the club as we know it today wasn’t instituted until 1930 and since then has gone from strength to strength. The course has seen multiple designers work on it over the years, most notably Arthur Spring who has worked extensively on courses across the country.

Made up of 18 holes, as the name suggests, the course here is of a heathland style and measures 5638 metres from the white tees with a par of 71. Features here are very traditional and combine to make an interesting and enjoyable course for players of varying skill levels with a good amount of challenge. 

Facilities at the club are good and players should find everything that they need here for an enjoyable time. There is a bar and restaurant for all to enjoy offering a wide selection of refreshments and a friendly Irish welcome. There is also a well-appointed professional golf shop stocking an array of equipment and apparel and practice facilities here include a modest driving range and practice area upon which players can hone and refine their skills. 

Visitors are warmly welcomed here and tee time availability is reasonable with Mondays and Thursdays having the best general availability (although this is subject to change with the season). Green fee rates for visitors are reasonable making this a good value golfing option for the majority.

Due to its central location, access to the club by road is good as Portlaoise is a connection point for many of the main routes to  Dublin including those from  Limerick and  Cork. There is a good selection of accommodation options in and around the town of Portlaoise that are sure to suit all visitors also.
