Dating back to around the 13th century the estate on which the East Golf Course at Powerscourt Golf Club is situated is steeped in history. Found outside of the small, sleepy village of Enniskerry in County Wicklow to the East of Ireland the course is set within the 1000 acre estate of the famous Slazenger family.

One of two courses at the Powerscourt Golf Club the East course was opened in 1996 and was designed by former Walker Cup Captain Peter McEvoy. This championship golf course has played host to a number of tournaments and competitions over the years; most notably the Irish PGA of 1998 and the Irish Seniors open in 2001.

This 18-hole, parkland style course measures 5946m and has a par of 72. Features are well spread across the course and are diverse in nature. Expect a fusion of design with the natural environment to create an unforgettable course. A good selection of challenging holes and a scattering of water hazards as well as a beautifully contoured and undulating greens allow for a challenging round of golf. This is a serious test for golfers and requires a thorough demonstration of skill and prowess for players to do well here.

The courses and club at Powerscourt are well equipped with regards to facilities. Although originally opened in 1996 at the same time as the East course, the club house was updated in 2003 so as to accommodate the demands of both courses. The state of the art building houses a bar, restaurant and professional golf shop well-stocked with merchandise and equipment. There are also full changing room facilities and lockers available for players.

Tee times for the East course have a fair availability which varies depending upon the season. Green fee rates for the course are reasonable for the quality and ranking of the course and some discounts are available across the course of the year making play here even better value.

Getting to the East course at Powerscourt is relatively easy thanks to its proximity to the Irish capital, Dublin which is only a 20 minute car journey away. Dublin itself is well connected by rail and air which makes this a good choice of course for visitors from further afield.

Accommodation options near to the course are quiet extensive and will suit the tastes of most. However the estate also houses The Powerscourt Hotel which offers luxury accommodation to visit and is very close to the course. The hotel has everything from fine dining to onsite Spa so can be enjoyed by golfers and non-golfers alike.
