Golfing In Mayo
Castlebar Golf Club is situated in Co. Mayo near the west coast of Ireland. It was founded in 1910, making it one of the oldest golf courses in the west of Ireland. A redevelopment programme was undertaken in 1999/2000 and the course has since never looked. Mayo has some other superb golf courses, ranging from 9 hole par 3 courses, to full 18 hole championship golf courses and golf links.
Check out the below video on Golfing in Ireland and the links to some of the fantastic course we have on our doorstep.
Castlebar Golf Club - The Augusta of Connaught
Originally founded in 1910, Castlebar Golf Club underwent several transformations, the last being the total redesign to its current layout measuring 6,420 yards with 18 sand based greens and tees. The course offers a variety of holes, each with its own unique challenge.
Castlebar Golf Club is a friendly and welcoming club, with members and visitors alike made feel welcome. The course is open all year round with only the severest of weather impacting on the course. The clubhouse has been recently extended and refurbished to provide top-class facilities. Catering and hospitality in the bar is provided by Joey McDonnell who has many years experience in the hospitality trade and he offers home-cooked meals with friendly personal service at very keen rates.
Ballinrobe Golf Club - Voted Best Parkland Course in Connaught 2013 & 2015
The Championship Parkland Golf Course at Ballinrobe Golf Club is considered by some, including Padraig Harrington, to be one of the finest in Ireland.
Cloonacastle Estate, which dates back to 1238, became the new home for Ballinrobe Golf Club during its centenary year in 1995. A mature 300 acre estate provides the setting for an ever evolving, continuously maturing, magnificent championship parkland golf course. A 250 year old Estate House and some of its original farm buildings, have been carefully and tastefully renovated to provide modern clubhouse facilities.
Westport Golf Club - In the shadow of majestic Croagh Patrick
Westport Golf Club, which played host to the 2002 Smurfit Irish P.G.A. Championship, is a magnificent 18 hole parkland course with breath taking views of Croagh Patrick and Clew Bay. Westport will leave great memories of a unique course on the shores of Clew Bay. Each hole offers a challenge under the watchful eye of Croagh Patrick.
Westport Golf Club is located just 5 minutes drive out of Westport town – renowned for its charisma and continental flavour, Westport’s cheerful, multi-coloured shop fronts jostle for attention with an attractive selection of pubs, shops, cafés and restaurants. Little wonder it has become one of Ireland’s most popular and cosmopolitan holiday destinations.
