Courtown Golf Club

Courtown Golf Club is a picturesque and challenging golf course located 5 km from the North Wexford town of Gorey. Founded in 1936 the golf course was upgraded to 18 holes in 1974. It was built on a piece of land that was once part of the old Courtown estate. Indeed evidence of the estate can still be seen, not least in the names of some of the holes - The Kennels, Earl's Rest, Lady's Field and Carriage Drive being notable examples.

The course itself has recently undergone some major design changes that have further enhanced the high standard on which Courtown prides itself. Furthermore Courtown Golf Club provides ancilliary golfing services such as the availability of golf trolleys and buggies, a practice area, practice putting greens, and ladies' and mens' locker rooms.

Although its boundaries come within 100 metres of the sea, Courtown is actually a parkland course. It is surrounded on three sides by forestry and the course boasts hundreds of mature trees.

In fact every fairway is lined to reward the accurate golfer and punish the wayward. The course is a matured par 71 almost 6000 metres in length and provides great variety.

The four par 3s are a feature, particularly the 18th where a water hazard and the threatening out of bounds on the left have to be negotiated. For the big hitters there are three par 5s, including the new dog-leg 9th hole, an imposing end to the front nine.

The remaining par 4s include the 4th, the signature hole, revered nationally and internationally. With its panoramic views of the south Irish Sea and the beautiful North Wexford coast it provides a delightful distraction to many a bad round.

Courtown is serviced by an excellent clubhouse that houses the abovementioned locker rooms as well as the exceptional restaurant and bar facilities. From this luxurious comfort can be enjoyed a panoramic view of the course and the Irish Sea beyond.
