Gowran Park Golf Club

In 2001 Gowran Park, in County Kilkenny, developed this unique 18 hole golf course to compliment its renowned race meetings. Incorporating a mixture of established woodland and lakes, this Jeff Howes designed par 71, 18 hole golf course provides and excellent test for the low handicap golfer whilst also being very enjoyable for the middle to high handicappers.

Located on the picturesque Lord Annaly Estate in the heart of County Kilkenny, Gowran Park is the home to only Grade 1 racecourse in the South East and what is one Ireland’s Top 100 golf courses.

The key feature of Gowran Park golf course would be that five holes of the golf course are located within the centre of the race course. The first three holes start inside the track, and then proceed in an anti-clockwise direction, returning inside again to play the 9th and the 18th under the watchful eye of the clubhouse. Holes 2 and 17 also face the extra challenge of avoiding the two lakes.

The course is a wonderful parkland golf course with tree-lined fairways and superb greens complemented by various water hazards, lakes and streams. The 15th hole is arguably the most picturesque hole on the course, no bunkers, no water, just a corridor of fairway cut between two rows of 100ft plus trees.

The signature hole is the 4th hole. A fantastic hole based on “Azalea” the 13th hole at Augusta. Playing to 100ft high trees in the distance you have to avoid the trees to the right and the creek to the left, expected to play your second shot over the creek which surrounds the green. A real index 2 hole.

This exciting, beautiful, dramatic and challenging golf course leads to an enjoyable golfing experience. No trip to the South East is complete without a trip to this Kilkenny Golf Course.
