The golf course at Swords Golf Club can be found in the  Dublin suburb of Swords itself in the east of  Ireland. The local area is well known for good golf as the  Roganstown Golf Club lies very near to the site. Swords and the surrounding area are full of attractions and places of interest for visitors including Swords Castle and the Carnegie Library, local amenities are very good; something that is further highlighted by the fact that the town was recently named as the third best town to live in in the country. 

The course here originally opened for play in 1992 and was at first, just a pay and play facility. However Swords Golf Club was founded in 1996 and has since grown from strength to strength and now boasts a fair member presence.

Consisting of 18 holes, the course is of a parkland style spread out over relatively flat terrain. Measuring 5613 metres from the white tees and with a par of 71, this may not be the longest course in the world however it is not without its fair share of challenge and features. Cut through by the Broadmeadow River, the course features a number of naturally occurring water hazards and strategically places bunkers and trees to make this an interesting yet enjoyable challenge. 

Facilities at the club are fair and there is a café area for players to enjoy in after their rounds in which they can partake in some light refreshment such as homemade scones. The club also has a number of items of equipment for hire to help facilitate play including clubs, trollies and buggies. 

Tee times for visitors to the course have good general availability if play is arranged in advance. Green fee rates for visitors here are reasonable and reflect the nature of the course and facilities as well as the location of the club. 

Due to its proximity with the capital, transport links via all forms are good from much of the rest of Ireland as well as  Northern IrelandEnglandWales and  Scotland as well as further afield. There is a good selection of accommodation providers in the local area which should appeal to most tastes and budgets.
