Where2Golf says: 

Glasson Country House Hotel & Golf Club: In common with Athlone Golf Club (located on the other side of Lough Ree), Glasson also offers splendid views over the impressive lough and its extensive reed beds, but there the similarities end.

Glasson's highly commendable Christy O'Connor Jr design, rolls its way over pleasantly undulating and relatively open terrain, bringing you down to the water's edge on the back-nine. The greens are large and full of slopes, some obvious, others less so. The bunkering is also substantive, especially around the greens.

From most parts of the course you will enjoy views onto the Lough. This scenic lake gets fully into proceedings as you enter the home stretch. Bringing you down to the shoreline of Killinure Bay (an inlet from the Lough) is the snaking par-5 14th. Next up is Glasson's signature hole, a wonderful par-3 with nothing but water and reed beds between your tee-shot and the safety of the green.

Benefitting from good green-keeping, this busy course is a firm favourite with local and visiting golfers alike. The layout, scenery and lakeside surroundings all support its inclusion in the top echelon of Ireland's inland Stay&Play venues.

Did you know?

Glasson's stately manor house is not perhaps the largest or most stunning in the Emerald Isle, but the views from it and from the adjoining hotel are among the finest inland views you'll experience in Ireland.

Tournaments:
The American Express formerly known as the Desert Classic, and for many years played as the Bob Hope Desert Classic, will once again be decided on the Pete Dye designed Stadium course at PGA West (Jan 16-19).
The Players Championship:  for the 39th time, TPC Sawgrass, another iconic Pete Dye design, will host The Players Championship for one of the richest first prizes in world golf (March 12-15).
 
Who's Who: 
Pete Dye:  one of the greatest golf course architects of this or any generation passes away aged 94. His contribution to golf course design, and the legacy he leaves is immense.
Jack Nicklaus:  like Pete Dye a native of Ohio, actually started his golf course design career working together with Dye. In 1967 Dye asked Nicklaus to input to his design for The Golf Club in Columbus, Ohio. Two years later they worked together on the revered Harbour Town Golf Links in South Carolina.

Latest golf course reviews
Sutton Coldfield Golf Club: located to the north of Birmingham, occupies a small corner of the wonderfully expansive and natural environs of Sutton Park.

Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
