Dundrum House


This is such a peaceful parkland setting for a golf course, with the fine early 18th century manor house – now a hotel – as a centrepiece and the Multeen River sliding gracefully through the Co. Tipperary landscape. It affects several holes and is a serious water hazard. Big trees predominate and the course’s designer, Philip Walton, did a wonderful job using the natural features to create this impressive par 72 course.The course starts calmly, easing you in, but after three lakeland-style holes Dundrum House really starts to hum from the par five 7th on. It’s when the river comes in to play and it is a danger on tee shots and approaches alike.
One of the undoubted highlights is the stand of three regal oaks in the middle of the 10th fairway, the river running along the right hand side. It is a dogleg and Index 2.
Favourite Hole: the par five 11th sweeps up the slopes through an ever-narrowing alley of tall trees.
What’s in the Bag? Your ball retriever… assuming your ball isn’t swept downstream.
