Located in the far west of  Ireland is the golf course at the Westport Golf Club. Found in County Mayo, the course overlooks the churning North Atlantic and is itself overlooked by the imposing Croagh Patrick Mountain which provides an excellent backdrop to this already scenic course. The nearby town of  Westport itself has good general amenities for visitors and has a number of places of interest including the majestic Westport House and the aforementioned mountain.

Founded in 1908, the club recently celebrated its centenary and its rich and interesting history is something which shines through here to all that visit. The club originally played on a course of 9 holes until it was extended to the full layout of 18 holes in 1973. The work on the course was carried out by the well-known Fred Hawtree, part of the famous Hawtree golfing dynasty, who has worked on courses from  Scotland to  Spain.

This 18 hole course is of a traditional parkland style and features include a good presence of mature trees as well as intelligently placed bunkers and water features. For gentlemen the course measures just short of 6150 metres and has a par of 73. Overall this is an interesting course with a diverse array of features that combine to add a toughness to this course that will make it appeal to even the most experienced of golfers. 

With regards to facilities, the club is well-equipped to meet the needs of visitors with regards to facilities.  There is both a bar and restaurant for players to enjoy in which all are sure to receive a warm Irish welcome. There is also a professional golf shop on site offering a good selection of equipment and apparel as well as offering a number of items for hire including clubs and trollies. Furthermore, as the club is home to a golfing academy practice facilities are good and include a modest driving range as well as outdoor practice area. 

Visitors are warmly welcomed here and tee time availability is generally good meaning that all should have no problem in finding a suitable time. Green fee rates for visitors here reflect the nature of the course and facilities and are therefore reasonable. There are a number of discounts and offers available to play here at certain times of the year. 

The club is somewhat secluded however local road links are good and the major cities of  Galway and  Sligo are each just over an hour away by car and onward links from them are strong. Accommodation options in and around the local area are moderate and there should be something to suit all.

    Sehr schön angelegter Platz, bestens ausgestattetes Clubhaus. Da regelmäßig Turniere stattfinden und auch größere Gruppen buchen empfiehlt sich eine telephonische Anfrage.
