Rathcore Golf Club... And The Winner Is...
The approach to the 18th green. A par five to finish.
The winner who correctly identified Rathcore Golf Club from the photos and clues is Alan Maher.

Rathcore remains one of those quiet, secretive places that few golfers know much about. Maybe they've heard of it... maybe they haven't, but it certainly doesn't get the press it deserves. Oh sure, it's not playing with the big boys, like Mount Juliet, or slapping on the glitz, like nearby Moyvalley, but rest assured it delivers thrills and enjoyment every step of the way.

Short, dynamic with lots of rolling  fairways across a lilting landscape, and tricky greens. You can let loose with a driver but Rathcore is more about course management as either of the photographs on this blog shows.
The par three 11th. One word: water.
If you want to sample Rathcore for yourself, the course holds plenty of Open Singles and Open Seniors events throughout the Spring and Summer. And if you win one of the events you qualify for the Grand Finals, which will be held in September.

The club also has a 3-Day Membership and 5-Day Membership Offer for €200 and €400 respectively. You'll find the details here.

There are plenty of unheralded golf courses in Ireland, but Rathcore is one I strongly recommend you try.
