Award Winning Parkland Course with Breathtaking Views of Croagh Patrick and Clew Bay
The magnificent Westport Golf Club is the finest Parkland Golf Facility in the West of Ireland. Just a “drive & a 3 iron” from Westport, this scenic splendour encapsulates 260 acres of undulating parklands which has played host to many historic days in the Irish Golf most notably Major Champion Rory McIlroy’s victory (aged 15) in the Irish Amateur Close Championship back in 2005.
Ryder Cup Captain Paul McGinley also has some fond memories of the Carrowholly course ….. winning the Smurfit P.G.A Championship back in 2002; 6 months before he rolled in the winning putt at the Belfey. McGinley also acknowledges that the 15th at Westport as one of his “favourite par 5s in the world”.
The club is delighted to offer an excellent practice facility less than pitching wedge from the 1st hole; which is open all year round. The Westport Golf Academy includes a 20 bay flood-lit driving range, 9 of which are covered with the remaining 11 comprising of a mixture of an elevated driving area and a ‘fairway zone’. We also have a double bunkered chipping green with two unique pin positions. Our undulating 9-hole putting green is situated at the first tee and has been developed to best simulate the course type and conditions.
Following your warm up or lesson, spoil yourself and your playing partner by availing of one of our buggy cars. The front 9 at Westport is relatively flat but the back 9 with majestic views of Croagh Patrick and Clew bay may encourage you to avail of one of our electric vehicles. There are 10 for hire, weather permitting. The Fred Hawtree designed course is situated on 260 acres of mature estate lands and there is great demand for our buggy fleet… we would always advise you pre-book to avoid disappointment.
