  • architect:Alistair McKenzie & Patrick Merrigan

The golf course at Nenagh Golf Club can be found in the Irish Midlands within the famous County Tipperary. Less than 7 kilometres outside of the town of the same name, the local area has plenty to offer to visitors in terms of attractions and places of interest. Said attractions include the historical Nenagh Castle and the ruins of an ancient abbey. 

Originally opened for play in 1929 the first course here comprised of only 9 holes which were laid out by the renowned Alister Mackenzie from Scotland. The course was extended to the full 18 holes in 1973 by the legendary, Irish favourite Eddie Hackett and was once more upgraded and updated in 2001 by the gifted Patrick Merrigan. 

The course here is of a parkland style and is often cited as one of the best in Ireland. It measures 5875 metres from the white tees and has a par of 72. Expect a fair amount of cleverly placed bunkers and visually stunning water features. This is a demanding course but is still fair and should be suited to players of differing styles and strengths.

Facilities here are good and include a bar and restaurant for players to enjoy after their rounds and here they are sure to receive a warm Irish welcome. Practice facilities here are also very good and include a large putting green as well as a large teeing area and bunker and short game area so players are sure to be able to hone their skills here and really improve their games.

Tee time availability for visitors to this course is fair and there is sure to be a time to suit all although weekend availability is somewhat restricted. Green fee rates are reasonable here and reflect the quality of the course and facilities available. Both tee times and green fee rates are subject to change with the seasons and the club hosts a number of open competitions throughout the course of the year which can be enjoyed by members and visitors alike.

Road connections to the club are relatively good from the majority of the rest of the country and the nearest metropolitan transport hub is likely that of Limerick which is around 50 km southwest of the club and onward links from there are strong. There are a number of accommodation options in and around the local area which should appeal to most tastes and budgets.

    The Nenagh golf course is a classic gem, it is situated on heathland in north Tipperary, the turf is almost links-like, brilliant bunkering and awesome greens – play well and you will be rewarded. This is an old style course without gimmickry or outlandish artificial lakes, a course that the purist would appreciate. Ernie.
