Found near to the suburban town of Lucan in the east of Ireland is the golf course at the Hermitage Golf Club. Within County Dublin, the course lies just over 14 km northwest of the city centre itself and the local area has plenty to offer to visitors of all ages. Lucan Golf Club is also near to the club making this a good destination for those wanting to enjoy more than one great golf course whilst soaking up the culture of the capital.

The club has a long and colourful history and was formed in 1905. Over the years the course here has seen a number of changes and redevelopments however its quality is apparent. During its lifetime the course and club have welcomed many famous faces including Bing Crosby, Seve Ballesteros and Colin Montgomerie.

Of a parkland style, the course here lies next to the beautiful River Liffey and the surroundings here are second to none. It measures just over 5320 metres from the white tee and has a par of 71. Features of this course are very traditional and extensive and include a significant presence of mature trees as well as intelligently placed bunkers and water features. This is a demanding course which is sure to be a tough yet enjoyable challenge for even the most experienced of players.

The facilities at the club are very good and include an extensive bar and restaurant area for players to enjoy after their rounds in which they are sure to receive a warm Irish welcome. There are also a number of meeting rooms and there are installations for snooker.

As the club has a strong member presence and is world renowned , the availability of tee times for visitors is somewhat restricted however if visitors are willing to avoid peak times then a suitable time if sure to be found for all if booked in advance. Green fee rates here reflect the quality of the course and facilities and this should be noted by those who may at first consider it pricey.

Due to the proximity of the club with the city, transport links are very good and access from much of the rest of Ireland as well as nearby Northern Ireland is also good. Accommodation options in and around the local area are good and there should be something to suit all tastes and budgets.

    Having played The K club and The Montgomerie at Carton House and been underwhelmed I had low expectations of this course, but I couldn't be more wrong. It is a beautifully manicured Parkland course with fantastically quick greens that took no prisoners. It's not overly long but it made you think carefully about placement. This was my worse score out of the three courses we played, but I enjoyed this the most, I would definitely come back.

    A most enjoyable course which everyone should play as often as they can.....at least annually for non-members. Played with one fellow guest and a member in an Open Day. Great day and my guest won the seniors with 42 points. Great game, Tom.Seán (Round played: Aug 2014 - Score: 93 Handicap: 18.1)
