Westport Golf Club is one of Ireland’s finest parkland courses. A highly regarded championship venue, the Club is the three-time host of the Irish Amateur Close Championship, the Smurfit Irish PGA Championship, and the 2019 AIG Cups & Shields All-Ireland Finals.
Located in the shadow of Croagh Patrick, Ireland’s holy mountain, the course boasts fantastic views of the surrounding area from its elevated position above the shore of Clew Bay.
Measuring 6,980 yards in length and with five par-five holes, Westport is a demanding track that will test even the longest of hitters off the tee. Fred W. Hawtree redesigned the current course in 1973. He said of Westport, “the nature of the terrain, part inland and part seaside, the panorama which it commands and its considerable golfing virtues, make it uniquely attractive and memorable.” The holes immediately beside the coastline are a real feature at Westport and they run from Roman Island the 208-yard par three 12th to the 515-yard par 5 15th called The Reek where the tee shot must carry 150 yards past an inlet to the left of the fairway.
The club also boasts floodlit driving range, a two-hole pitching green and putting green, a 9-hole pitch and putt course, as well as an impressive clubhouse, with restaurant, bar, locker rooms, and fully stocked pro-shop designed to exceed members’ and visitors’ expectations.
You are sure of a welcome reception from the friendly staff at Westport who are more than happy to assist and ensure your experience is one to remember.
