Strandhill Golf Club
Strandhill Golf Club overview
Strandhill Golf Club was originally designed as a 9-hole course in 1931 before becoming the 18-hole links course we see today in 1973, with the help of architect Eddie Hackett. Wedged in between the Atlantic Ocean and the famous landmark of Knocknarea Mountain, Strandhill provides a stunning round of golf on some interesting dune land.
The club is also home to a wonderfully modern clubhouse that opened in 2006, surely offering some of the most picturesque views from the 19th hole in Ireland. In a nutshell, Strandhill Golf Club offers great value for money.
Strandhill Golf Course overview
Strandhill Golf Club offers great variety in the layout and although less than 6350-yards from the back tees is still able to present a good challenge and a very fun round of golf, due in large part to the interesting terrain that has been utilized.
Whilst this par-70 sits on quite a small piece of land when compared with other traditional links courses, it still delivers some interesting hole routing through the dunes, hemmed in by Strandhill Beach and Culleenamore Strand to the south. Golfers will find excellent green complexes, great vistas, and holes that have different ways of being played depending on conditions and how bold you feel.
Did You Know?
Strandhill had built a new clubhouse in 1997 but this was inadvertently destroyed in 2005. This led to a new clubhouse opening in 2006 which tied in with the club’s 75th anniversary.
