  1. Concra Wood
  2. Dundrum House (Tipperary)
  3. Galway Bay
  4. Rosapenna

Concra Wood

This coming Bank Holiday Monday (August 4th) there is an Open competition at €40 per person. This includes green fee entry and a meal of Chicken & Chips or you can use the meal voucher towards other items on the menu.

And every Tuesday the club hosts an Open Singles for €25.

Dundrum House

Celebrating 21 years of Golf, Dundrum House Golf Course is ranked in the Top 5 Parkland Courses in Munster. If you've been lucky enough to play it, then you'll be nodding in agreement at this point. There's also the hotel alongside, making this a great place to base yourselves for a break away.

Galway Bay Golf Resort
