Did you know?

Concra Wood Golf & Country Club is the latest stage in the evolution of Castleblayney Golf Club. Founded as a 9-hole course in 1905, opposite the entrance to Concra Wood, it closed in 1949. In 1985, it was reborn in the grounds of Hope Castle (visible across Lough Muckno), before moving to its current location in 2008, and expanding to 18 holes. The ruins of an old folly castle (known locally as McMahon’s Castle), built by Lord Blayney, lies beside the 8th tee box, while the Temple ruin (a picnic retreat for Lord Blayney) is located between the 9th tee and 4th fairway.

Published ranking

2019 Golf World rating: 45th best course in Ireland.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
