Test your golfing skills at Shannon Golf Club

Shannon, South Clare


This course has been tested by golfers from around the world – members, European professionals, and a host of US stars. Shannon has also proudly hosted both Irish and European amateur championships and the Men’s Amateur Irish Close Championship. More is planned for the future.

Now firmly established as one of Ireland’s premier parkland courses, Shannon’s fairways feature natural meadow grass planted on either side with spruce, evergreens, and a wide variety of deciduous trees.

The course presents a mixture of sand-based and traditional greens, maintained to the highest standard and protected by numerous sand bunkers to offer the final challenge to each hole.

Water hazards are a feature of the 6th, 7th, 8th, 14th and 17th holes, with the par three 17th, the course’s signature hole, requiring a dedicated golf shot over the Shannon Estuary.

Why not visit and test the course for yourself? You’ll receive a friendly Co. Clare welcome!
