Kilrush Golf Club is an 18-hole parkland golf course situated just outside the maritime town of Kilrush on the Wild Atlantic Way. Founded in 1934, it was redesigned in 1994 by Dr Arthur Spring. The clever use of natural terrain combined with water, trees and sand bunkers has resulted in a scenic course that is a pleasure to play.
The 9th hole is its’ signature hole. Played from a plateau, this par three measures 154 meters (168 yards) to the green. It is guarded on three sides by water and on the fourth side by sand.
It is often referred to as one of the friendliest clubs in Ireland. They welcome past and present members, visitors, societies and diners to their club and restaurant.
They offer a wide array of membership packages to accommodate golfers. See their website for all details.
They have a vibrant membership from juniors upwards, and last year they participated in Golf Irelands ‘Get into Golf’ women’s programme.
