Athenry Golf Club
DG IRELAND TOP 150 GOLF COURSES – 2021
Editor, Kevin Markham

A strong country parkland moving easily between the trees and into a woodland setting for several holes.

This is country golf at its finest, with good maintenance, nice flourishes and one enjoyable hole after another.

The 1st hole skirts a fairy ring while the 4th includes a woody dell. The closing holes are lost in pine trees that create a moody finish but this is where the strongest holes await. There are no elevation changes so it is left to the trees and gently curling fairways to challenge you while greens offer their own surprises. The course can play short so be sure to play it from the back tees for the full experience – 5,859 metres, par 70. A comfortable clubhouse awaits your return.

Favourite Holes: The par threes on 3 and 12 form a perfect pair. Side by side and resting next to a wood of broken trees.

What’s in the Bag? Not getting too comfortable with the sweet, lazy pace of the course.
