Gold Coast Golf Club

3-star: Good course – an enjoyable test for your game.

Est. 1939

Gold Coast Golf Club is home to another wonderfully scenic and challenging 18-hole course bordered by the Atlantic Ocean. Stunning views onto Dungarvan Bay, the Irish Sea, Helvick Head and the Comeragh Mountains abound. The original nine-hole course dating from 1939, was recently extended to 18. The mature woodland stretches of the original nine are now intermingled with the relatively more open and longer holes of the newer nine, forming a challenging test for golfers of all levels.

There are several excellent holes along the seashore, although when the wind is blowing hard, you'll probably be wanting a bit more shelter than some parts of the course afford. The Dungarvan lighthouse stands impressively at the far end of the course, skirted by the 7th, 8th and 9th holes.

Stay & Play at Gold Coast GC: onsite accommodation available, see Where2Stay section below.
