Carlow Golf Club

Deerpark Course: Carlow Golf Club is an inland links, laid out in a former wild deer park over undulating terrain with numerous elevated tees, several excellent dog-legs and small slick putting surfaces. Extensive, mature woods are a strong feature in a pleasant countryside setting where the unusually sandy soil has the bonus of allowing year round play. The course is rated among the top 20 Championship Courses in Ireland. 18 hole parkland – 6,621 yards (6,055 meters) – par 70.

There are many long par 4s and the 16th, a very demanding two shotter played through a tunnel-like valley, has been chosen by Christy O’Connor Snr. as the foremost 16th hole in Ireland. The par 5, 18th offers the chance of a closing birdie and a grandstand finish as it tumbles downhill all the way back to the clubhouse. A good ending to a memorable round.

Oakpark Course: The 9 Hole Par 35, Oakpark Course, owned by Carlow Golf Club, was designed by renowned architect Jeff Howes is a truly terrific layout. Situated on rolling terrain, it provides a superb challenge to golfers of all standards. Similar to the Championship Deerpark course, the emphasis is on accurate iron play and a delicate short game! 9 hole parkland – 3,197 yards (2,923 meters) – par 35.
