Found in County Carlow, Ireland is the luxurious Mount Wolseley Hotel, Spa & Golf Resort and its affiliated golf course. Set within a large estate the entire resort is expansive and of a very high standard with the centrepiece being the majestic Mount Wolseley House which was constructed back in the 19th century, in 1864 to be specific. The county town of Carlow itself is less than 20km to the west of the estate.

The course here was opened in 1995 and was designed by the renowned Christy O’Connor Jnr, son of Christy O’Connor Snr. Over the course of his design life O’Connor Jnr has worked on many projects across Europe and all are of an exceptional standard with this one being no exception.

Of a parkland style, this 18 hole course measures some 6500 metres and has a par of 72. Features here are extensive and combine to create a demanding test of golf for even the most experienced of players. Expect multi-tiered greens and plenty of trees around the fairways as well as a number of water hazards and bunkers. It is without doubt that this is an enjoyable course which is sure to be a test for many. 

As the course is part of a larger resort facilities here are good. There are a number of dining options throughout the resort which players can enjoy. There is also a well-stocked professional golf shop from which players can purchase a variety of international brands. There are also a number of practice holes here for players to carry out an all-important warm up. Aside from golf, the complex boasts excellent Spa and leisure facilities making it a perfect destination for a golfing getaway. 

With regards to tee times, availability for visitors is fair and there should be something to suit most. Priority obviously goes to members and hotel guests and this should be noted when booking. Green fee rates here reflect the quality of the course and its facilities. Throughout the year, the course hosts a number of open competitions which can be enjoyed by members and visitors alike.

Thanks to its location in the middle east of Ireland, transport links to the complex are good and it can easily be reached by visitors from the rest of Ireland as well as Northern Ireland and further afield. The obvious accommodation option for visitors here is the attached hotel and resort which not only offers a number of room and suite options but also a number of luxury self-catered holiday homes.

    Some place for any level of golfer and is very enjoyable. Holes like 3,4,10,11 and 18 are as good as you will find anywhere. The only thing this place is lacking to be a top course is a few extra yard
