Around 25 kilometres outside of the city of Galway near to the West coast of Ireland is where you will find the golf course at Oughterard Golf Club. Lying in County Galway the course and its club are nestled in some of the most scenic Irish countryside with Lough Corrib lying to the East and the famous Connemara Mountains to the North. The nearby town of Oughterard itself has a prominent angling centre making it ideal for those who want to enjoy more than one pastime while in the area.

The club was established back in 1974 and was originally just a nine-hole course which was laid out by John Harris. However less than ten years later the course was extended to the full 18 holes but it wasn’t until 1997 that the course received a major overhaul and upgrade. The work was carried out by Patrick Merrigan and involved the lengthening of a number of holes and the introduction of more features. 

Now this 18 hole, parkland style course measures 5964 metres from the blue markers and has a par of 70. Expect a lot of mature trees and woodland dotted around this course which both add challenge and beauty to the play here. Also large, undulating greens and clever bunkering are present on this course and not to mention the generous use of water that you will find here. 

Oughterard is well-equipped to meet the needs of both members and visitors and has both a bar and restaurant which can be found in the clubhouse. There is also a professional golf shop selling a range of crested and un-crested goods and merchandise. Furthermore there are rental facilities and a club repair service and golf lessons are also available here. Practice facilities include a short game area as well as a practice bunker and chipping green. 

The tee times for visitors to this course are generally good and are well dispersed throughout the course of the day.  However availability during weekends and on Wednesdays is somewhat restricted as these tend to be reserved for members and open competitions. Green fee rates here offer excellent value for money making this a great choice for those wanting to enjoy golf more regularly.

Getting here is relatively straightforward as it is located near to the main Galway-Clifden road and the sizeable city of Galway is only 25 km away and boasts even better connections to much of the rest of Ireland. With regards to accommodation for visitors to this course, the club has a number of links to local providers which can offer players some excellent stay and play rates and should suit most tastes and budgets.

    We played on the passage. The first 4 tracks are parallel with mature trees in between. Then varied. We played with very good weather and were able to enjoy the place.The green fee of €20 per nose contained even a breakfast to the value of 7; €85 which, arrived as we at 14.00 in the clubhouse after the game, was without count on any Court of the day card, which were all very good at venüftigen prices. So greenfee €12.15 for 18... a real profit and beautiful day.
