Where2Golf says: 

Athlone Golf Club: Occupying a quiet and very scenic stretch of land jutting out into Lough Ree, Athlone's golf course offers a combination of testing golf and wonderful views. The significant drop from the tee at the par-4 1st and an approach played to an elevated green, signal the often undulating nature of this layout, although thankfully it could not be described as overly hilly. An accurate tee shot is required at the par-3 2nd, this time underlining the need for straight hitting on many parts of this scenic parkland course. For all you slicers of the golf ball, OB is frequently present on the right, something to factor into your course management, especially when lining up those booming tee shots. The 4th and 5th are challenging holes taking you out towards the end of the Yew Point peninsula, from which views over the Lough and its extensive reed beds maintain the enchantment of this location. Overall, a very pleasant lakeside course, usually maintained to a high standard.

Athlone GC started life as Athlone Garrison Golf Club and was mainly for British Army Officers. In 1904 with many more local people joining, the club became Athlone Golf Club.
