Where2Golf says: 

Carlow Golf Club: The 18-hole Deerpark course here at Carlow, laid out over a former wild deerpark, presents the opportunity to play one of Ireland's lesser known inland gems. The feel is quite different from Ireland's classic seaside links or the newer parkland offerings, which seem to be springing up all around. Some describe Carlow as an inland links, others a classic heathland course (although without the heather). Whatever description is applied, this wonderfully mature and challenging course is structured around a single hill, giving panoramic views onto surrounding countryside. The hill provides the terrain for some fabulous golf holes - not least the plunging par-4 8th and the par-5 18th, played from the top of the hill. You'll also not forget the 12th and 16th holes - two world-class par-4's. The course is well-designed so that the occasional climbs do not feel too onerous, and green-keeping throughout is usually of a high standard. The greens are generally quite small and run fast and true. Definitely put Carlow on your route planner as you travel down to the south-west or back up to Dublin, and enjoy one of Ireland's best kept secrets.

Did you know?

Carlow started life in 1899 as the Leinster Golf Club with a nine-hole course at Gotham. The name was changed to Carlow GC in 1902 and in 1904 the first clubhouse was constructed for the tidy sum of £99. The Club moved to its current location in 1922. Head professional until Andy Gilbert took over was Christy O'Connor Jnr.
