Powerscourt Golf Club

Following confirmation from the Golfing Unions and Sport Ireland that golf is not permitted under level 5 restrictions, unfortunately Powerscourt Golf Club will temporarily be closed until further notice.

Both courses and facilities will re-open as soon as government guidelines allow. Further updates will be posted on our social media channels as the situation changes.

We look forward to welcoming back our members and visitors in the not too distant future. In the meantime, please stay safe and we encourage everyone to adhere to the current guidelines to help flatten the curve.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Powerscourt soon.
