County Laois in Central Ireland is where you will find the golf course at Portlaoise Golf Club. Set within the province of Leinster the course lies just outside of the county town Port Laoise which is home to a number of attractions and places of interest which include an ancient hilltop castle and large Georgian stately home. The golf course is also situated around 14 km to the North of the well-known town of Abbeyleix too. 

Golf on the site dates back to the beginnings of the 19th century and was firstly the home to the Marlborough Golf Club. However over time a number of changes were made and it became the home of Portlaoise Club, it is not officially documented as to who constructed the course however this is a great example of an Irish parkland style course. 

With a par of 67 and measuring 4800 metres from the white tees this is somewhat of a short course but it still has plenty to offer in terms of features. Expect extensive water features that will require a great array of shots from golfers to do well here and a large number of trees and bunkers which further add challenge and deepen the level of skill needed here. 

Facilities at this club are as to be expected and most needs should be catered for here. The club can provide for a variety of functions and events by prior arrangement at competitive prices.

Although the club is very member orientated visitors here are warmly welcomed and the club has a number of open days throughout the year for visitors to try out the club. General availability for tee times is also fair for visitors and varies somewhat throughout the seasons. Green fee rates here are very reasonable and offer good value for money. The club also has some great offers and packages available for societies which make this a great destination for society events and functions.

Due to its central location in Ireland the club and course are relatively easy to access and have good road links to the rest of the country. The capital Dublin and its international airport are around 90km away also. There are a number of accommodation options in and around the local area which should most that visit here.

    Lovely little course. A few challenging holes and plenty of trees. Enjoyable round and very friendly members.
