Highfield Golf and Country Club and its golf course really are somewhat of a hidden Irish gem, both can be found in the very picturesque countryside of County Kildare, Ireland.  It is found in the quaint rural community of Carbury and offers a beautiful setting in which to play golf. Set in the estate of the Duggan family this course blends and incorporates the natural surroundings of the site perfectly.

The club was founded in 1989 after the sudden death of the head of the Duggan family and the future uncertainty which surrounded the land that at the time was used for farming. The decision to create a golf course on the site was quickly made and family member, Alan Duggan was asked to design the course as he had the most experience in the family having trained as a green keeper previously. After a number of years the course was finally opened for play in 1991.

Highfield is of a parkland style and consists of 18 holes which have a par of 70. The course measures 5300 metres from the white tees. Its features include undulating greens which are lush and slick as well as cleverly placed water hazards and bunkers. The surrounding natural environment adds more of a challenge to make this a tough yet enjoyable course. Thanks to the clever construction and natural setting of this course it is environmentally friendly and sustainable and the club is proud to offer somewhat of an eco-golfing experience. 

Facilities at the club are housed in a unique cedar wood club house that was built in 2003 using carefully sourced wood from a managed forest which further adds to the clubs environmentally friendly approach. Here you will find a small, cosy bar which players can enjoy after their rounds. There is also a driving range at the club as well as installations for other sports such as tennis.

Tee times here for visitors are somewhat restricted however there tends to be fair availability which should suit all. Green fee rates are very reasonable at the club and offer good value for money when you take into account the quality of the course and its facilities.

Getting to the club is relatively straightforward and although it is in somewhat of a secluded location it is still less than an hour by car to the capital Dublin. From Dublin international transport links are plentiful. With regards to accommodation at the golf and country club there are number of beautiful hand crafted lodges on the site which are both luxurious and unique, although some have been sold as homes a number are still used to provide accommodation to visitors.
