Irish Golf Travel Information

This section provides information on golfing in Ireland. More general information on visiting Ireland is contained in our Irish Golf Travel page.


WEATHER

Be prepared! It is always best to expect that there will be some rain at some stage. Good wet weather gear and a protective hat can minimise the spoiling effect of the rain. In fact, rain is often more preferable to wind - especially on links courses where high winds can wreak havoc with ball flight.

Always bring a change of clothes and a towel to the golf course.

See our weather page for the best explanation we can give on Ireland's unpredictable weather!


PRACTICE FACILITIES

Many of Ireland's golf courses were established in the late 19th or early 20th century. Consequently, practice facilities may be very basic, if available at all. Most courses have a putting green at a minimum and some provide practice areas that require your own practice balls. Your tour information pack will contain details of practice facilities at the golf courses on your itinerary.

Many of the newer courses have excellent practice facilities that include a full driving range.


PRO-SHOP FACILITIES

Pro-shop facilities are available at the vast majority of golf clubs in Ireland.These range from basic to fully equipped golf-shops. The individual golf course information pages (see Golf Guide to Ireland) indicate whether a PGA professional is available for tuition.


CLUBHOUSE FACILITIES

Clubhouse facilities vary from the old, traditional (and sometimes weird and wonderful!) to modern, luxurious facilities. The vast majoriy offer adequate changing rooms with showers. In most cases towels can be obtained, usually from the clubhouse bar.

Dining facilities are available at most courses although some require advance notice. The best policy is to check before you play.


TEE-TIMES

It is essential that your group be rady to play at the appointed time. No guarantee can be made for groups that miss the allotted tee-time. In cae of unavoidable delay will will endeavour to secure a later tee-time.


HANDICAP CERTIFICATES

It is recommended that visiting golfers be in possession of a current, valid handicap certificate for presentation to the starter at some of the more popular courses.


PACE OF PLAY

A fourball game should take between 4 - 4.5 hours. As elsewhere in the world, slow play can be a problem in Ireland, especially on busy days. For everyones enjoyment please observe golf etiquette and call faster groups through.
