One Magnificent Setting, Two Championship Golf Courses

The East Course was designed by the talented golfer and successful Walker cup captain Peter McEvoy who brilliantly follows the contours of this mature and historic landscape. It has hosted the 1998 Irish PGA which three time major winner Padraig Harrington won in a playoff. The East course also hosted the 2001 Irish Seniors Open.

 

 

Advanced PGA Professional Tip
Par 4, a slight dogleg to the right. Aim at the church steeple off the tee.
Hole:1st
Par:4
Men’s Green:376
White:384

Ladies Red:373
Advanced PGA Professional Tip
Par 5, a dogleg to the left, aim right of the fairway bunker off the tee. There are some tall trees in the fairway about 100 yards from the green, left of these trees maybe the route if you are long enough to hit the green in two but if not the right hand side is wider than it appears and it opens up the green for your approach shot.

Men’s Green:426

A straight foreword par 3, tends to play shorter than the yardage would suggest.
Hole:3rd
Par:3
Men’s Green:116
White:131
Blue:154
Ladies Red:105
Advanced PGA Professional Tip
A par 4 with out of bounds on the right, an accurate tee shot is rewarded however, if you hit the ball over 200 yards off the tee there is more room on the left the further you hit it.
Hole:4th
Par:4
Men’s Green:283
White:295
Blue:332
Ladies Red:263
Advanced PGA Professional Tip
Another par 3 from an elevated tee. With the pin on the back of this green it is important to remember the top level of the green slopes from front right to back left and so putts in this direction will be faster than they appear.
Hole:5th
Par:3
Men’s Green:171
White:191
Blue:216
Ladies Red:155
Advanced PGA Professional Tip
Par 5 slight dogleg to the left, aim your tee shot between the bunker on the left and the big tree on the right. You are better favouring the right hand side, as the bunkers are fairly penalising. Shots into this green will play longer because of the slight incline.
Hole:6th
Par:5
Men’s Green:431
White:461
Blue:484
Ladies Red:404
Advanced PGA Professional Tip
Par 4, the ideal tee shot should be aimed at the first roof top on the left. Those who hit the ball 250yards plus may think about playing a three wood off this tee. If not you will need to aim more at the church steeple. Again right is a better place to miss this fairway.
Hole:7th
Par:4
Men’s Green:323
White:336
Blue:383
Ladies Red:302
Advanced PGA Professional Tip
A tough par 4, the two fairway bunkers placed in the middle of the fairway cause the most problems especially the one about 60yards from the green, which is cleverly placed to catch a badly stuck approach shot. Approach shots should favour the right hand side of this green.
Hole:8th
Par:4
Men’s Green:387
White:401
Blue:422
Ladies Red:379
Advanced PGA Professional Tip
A short par 4, with an out of bounds to the left that comes more into play the further you hit the ball.
Hole:9th
Par:4
Men’s Green:292
White:306
Blue:348
Ladies Red:279
Advanced PGA Professional Tip
Par 4, both your tee shot and your approach shots should favour the left hand side to avoid all the bunkers on this hole.
Hole:10th
Par:4
Men’s Green:342
White:351
Blue:387
Ladies Red:323
Advanced PGA Professional Tip
Par 4, no bunkers to avoid on this hole but your approach shots can be as much as two club lengths more than you think.
Hole:11th
Par:4
Men’s Green:344
White:354
Blue:382
Ladies Red:319
Advanced PGA Professional Tip
A par 5 with a slight dogleg to the left, if you aim your tee shot at the fairway bunkers in the distance it sets you up to play a sensible lay up shot between the woods on the right and the bunkers on the left. The longer hitter can reach this green in two.
Hole:12th
Par:5
Men’s Green:472
White:485
Blue:498
Ladies Red:428
Advanced PGA Professional Tip
Par 3. from an elevated tee. Best advice is to aim at the middle of the green regardless of the pin position.
Hole:13th
Par:3
Men’s Green:136
White:156
Blue:167
Ladies Red:119
Advanced PGA Professional Tip
A par 4, dogleg left to an elevated green. Aim at the fairway bunkers with your tee shot, long hitters will only need to play a three wood or driving iron.
Hole:14th
Par:4
Men’s Green:288
White:309
Blue:350
Ladies Red:287
Advanced PGA Professional Tip
A par 4. even though there are fairway bunkers on the left it is still better to favour the left off the tee as most shots are kicked to the right.
Hole:15th
Par:4
Men’s Green:329
White:333
Blue:357
Ladies Red:317
Advanced PGA Professional Tip
Par 3. With water at the front and a steep bank at the back most players opt to take more club here, but very seldom does the ball bounce back onto the green and it will leave the golfer a very difficult chip.
Hole:16th
Par:3
Men’s Green:123
White:134
Blue:145
Ladies Red:97
Advanced PGA Professional Tip
Par 5 slight dogleg to the left. Your tee shot should be aimed at the tall tree protruding from the copse on the right.
Hole:17th
Par:5
Men’s Green:482
White:488
Blue:544
Ladies Red:462
Advanced PGA Professional Tip
A par 4 that doglegs to the left at the end. Your tee shot needs to be on the right of the fairway to open this green, but long hitters be careful you can reach the water on the right.
Hole:18th
Par:4
Men’s Green:347
White:371
Blue:390
Ladies Red:319
