Dromoland Golf Club
Dromoland Golf Club was set up in 1962 on the grounds of the Dromoland Castle. Since then it has catered to many of the best personalities and golfers around. In 2003, the Dromoland golf course was redesigned to the highest standards by Joe Carr and Ron Kirby. It is situated on 400 unspoilt acres of lush wooded parkland enhanced by the gently flowing River Rine which becomes a feature for three of the many beautiful holes on the course.. You could say that the new look course is Clare’s answer to Augusta and it’s been elevated to premier status within Irish golfing circles. In 2006 a new Golf Academy was added to the course. The greens in this are the same Creeping Bent grass that is used out on the course so make your mistakes here. Between the facilities and the spectacular views that you will see around the course this will be a golfing experience that you are unlikely to forget too soon.
