Glasson Golf Club at Glasson Lakehouse: 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.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.

Golf Son Gual

Golf Son Gual is home to a course frequently rated the No.1 layout on the holiday island of Mallorca. Opening for play in 2007, this Thomas Himmel design combines the openness of a links-style layout with the stylish bunkering and not infrequent water hazards more typically associated with parkland courses.

Son Gual is located just a few kilometres from Palma (Mallorca). Palma's Old City shows clear influences from the city's Arab past.
