|Approach to 12|
Are words even necessary? Here are some photos taken last week of the Paul McGinley designed Macreddin outside Aughrim in Co. Wicklow. A beautiful course, in superb condition, and a green fee of just 20-40 euro. More photos below...
On Sunday 18th May, Macreddin is holding its Junior
(4-9) & Intermediate (10-18) Scratch Cups. Booking available online or by
calling 0402 36999. If these photos don’t inspire you to get out and play this
excellent course, then reconsider golf! Green fee is a snip at €25... and buggies are allowed.
General Course Management Tip: Avoid the gorse!
|A tough, beautiful hole - the tee shot on 12|
|Views back down the par five 2nd|
|Views over the 3rd green - holes 5 and 8 beyond|
|The delicious short par four 6th|
|View back up the 13th par five... the 12th is to the right|
|The par five 15th is a brute, heading steeply uphill before |
dog-legging sharply right
|The par three 17th, green to tee. This image doesn't show how much |
of a drop it is from the tee box. It's a gorgeous shot over the river.
Come and play some great golf in Ireland.
I'm not a huge fan of hilly courses, but I'll let that go for Macreddin as it's such an enjoyable course. It has a few more so called signature holes than most other courses. I have played it about half a dozen times and will definitely be back. I do like when a course throws up a few short par 4's, risk and reward holes are a great addition to any course. I also like when there is a quirky designed hole, and here you have the par 3 4th. What a great hole. After all it's only a half hours drive from home. Although it's a great track I will always have a buggy under me for this track.
