    A real pleasure to play this flat parkland course where the wire fencing adds an extra feature. This was a beautiful day with the fairways, greens and tee boxes looking at their best. Real friendly service in the club house and restaurant. A most enjoyable golfing and customer experience. (Round played: Jun 2016 - Score: 95 Handicap: 19.9)

    The Curragh, a club with a long proud history within Irish Golf is situated on the vast plains of Co Kildare. This is the oldest golf course in Ireland, having being laid out by members of military stationed at the nearby Curragh Camp and to this day still maintains a very strong link to the Army. Every second year a member of the armed forces is made Captain of the club, a novel idea which helps foster the relationship. When I first started playing the Curragh it was a vastly different design to the one we see today. Back then the layout was largely unchanged from the original.However in recent times, a public road running through the course became busier and required that shots could now not be played across the road, something which would turn out to be, in my opinion, detrimental. The course lost a huge amount of its character, with the re-design being carried out by Paddy Merrigan, which I feel is the worst example of his work that I have ever seen (I struggle to believe that this is the same man who designed Tulfarris).In his renovations he designed 3 new holes and altered two existing holes and in doing so he laid created something which I feel a Construction foreman could have done a better job of. The three new holes(two long par 5's and a brain dead uphill par 3) are a complete mis-fit for the topography and were in my opinion designed completely aside from the overall thought behind the remaining holes. They stand out like white elephants, the original course was designed with St Andrews and Musselburgh (the 2 clubs have a link) in mind and was intended to play like a links, with the hard running terrain being a great substitute for seaside turf. I was a lover of the original Curragh and I must say that many of the holes are still the same, however it is these new "excuses" for golf holes which deter me from playing a track I one loved so much. Great efforts have been made by this years captain to return the course to its former glory (tree removal etc) that being I feel he has made one fatal error, removing the Sheep from the course. These animals were an integral part of the course and how it played, allowing for a wide open track with emphasis on shot making and also how one would deal with the many different lies encountered.This once great course, which a young golfer growing up at would learn to play a large variety of shots has been ruined by modern day requirements.

    Not to bad.Some very easy holes and more so in the start.The greens and fairways are in great condition but the rough is poor with tractor tracks in them.Overall would play again if it was close but n
