Limerick Golf Club

Limerick Golf Club is a mature par 72 parkland course measuring over 6,500 yards in length, with a number of holes designed by Dr. Alister McKenzie, architect of Lahinch and Augusta National, and others by John D. Harris.

The course starts off benignly enough with a couple of shortish opening holes. Any sense of security that may have set in from playing these is quickly dispelled as the fifth hole is negotiated. This is a monstrous hole and demands two big shots to a well protected green.

After this, the golfer is well and truly into the round at Limerick. The course is a mix of demanding holes interspersed with some good birdie chances, notably the tenth and the short fifteenth.

The long eight is an outstanding hole, with a stream meandering its way through it, coming into play for all shots to a severely sloping green. Another notable hole is the seventeenth, one of the surviving McKenzie holes, a downhill, sharp dogleg.

The course used to become quite wet and suffered at the hands of the adverse weather conditions in past years. A drainage programme has been implemented to tackle the worst affected areas of the course, utilising more modern drainage techniques than were previously available.

This, coupled with a long term sanding programme, has transformed the course into one of the driest and most playable parkland courses in the entire Mid-West region.
