Golf courses at Carton House Hotel & Golf Club
The O'Meara Course
Designed by the 1998 Open and Masters champion, the O'Meara Course has been created using much of the existing woodland, resulting in a scenic course. The shorter of the two courses at Carton House, the O’Meara course is a classic parkland with natural hazards at every turn, including the River Rye guarding holes 13, 14 and 15, with the 14th perfectly placed with the stunning Shell Cottage as a backdrop. This course and its partner course both create a true gem of a club in the Emerald isle.
The Montgomerie Course
Designed by the 2010 Ryder Cup captain, Colin Montgomerie, this course is regarded as an ‘inland links’ course, optimising the contours of the surrounding landscape and with many features that resemble a true links course, including deep bunkers and steep fairways. This course also hosted the 2005 Irish Open, showing off its ability to be a championship course. It is also considered the superior of the two courses at Carton House Golf Club.
