About Powerscourt Golf Club
Powerscourt Golf Club is located half an hour south of Dublin in Powerscourt Estate, in what is truly one of the most unique settings you can play in Ireland! The Club is located on the historic 1,000 acre Powerscourt Estate, which dates back to the 12th century. The courses are lush and green and truly give a sense of why County Wicklow is called the Garden of Ireland! An abundance of 200 year old trees frame the courses which offer stunning views to the sea and Sugar Loaf Mountain.
While the surroundings are lush and peaceful, it is the courses which keep our golfers happy and coming back 🙂 Powerscourt offers, not one, but two Championship Golf Courses. The East Course hosted the 1998 Irish PGA and the 2001 Irish Seniors Open. Talented golfer and successful Walker Cup captain Peter McEvoy designed the East Course which is a testing and rewarding challenge for all levels of golfers. The West Course was designed by David Mclay Kidd, whose portfolio includes the acclaimed Bandon Dunes in Oregan. Like the East, the West offers a variety of challenging holes which won’t disappoint! After soaking up the scenery and enjoying a round of golf, unwind with a cool pint of Guinness in the panoramic bar and restaurant in the club house. It really is an exceptional venue to play, and we get fantastic feedback from those who play here as you can tell from our visitor reviews below.
Powerscourt is a hit with the golfers who play here!
“The East Course is one of the best Golf Courses in the World, the views are completely stunning.”
“Thanks Powerscourt for a wonderful welcome, we had a great time and have not really recovered from your Augusta speed Greens. Keep up the good work and we will certainly visit you again. I will recommend you to everybody here in Germany.”
“Two fantastic courses, always well worth playing.”
Following the announcement that Ireland will return to full Level 5 restrictions golf is prohibited from 1st – 31st January 2021.
For now we are advised to stay home and stay safe to ensure that we continue to flatten the curve. We look forward to welcoming you all back to Powerscourt Golf Club in the not distant future. ‘STAY THE COURSE SO WE CAN GET BACK OUT ON THE COURSE’
