3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1910

Grange Golf Club: Situated in the foothills of the Dublin mountains, Grange Golf Club is conveniently located just 15 minutes from Dublin city centre. The course has evolved over the past 100 years and following an expansion in the 1990s now boasts 24 holes. This allows Grange to offer three different layouts with a par of 68 on the original (Love) course, and 72 on the Championship course.

Once you've recovered (or prospered) from the two opening holes (both par-3s if you're playing the par-68 Love course), Grange will open up before you as a very enjoyable parkland course. Some of the original James Braid design is still evident, although much of his work has been substantially modified over the years. In fact, from the 8th to the 16th (Championship course) you are playing holes that are newly constructed and were only opened in 2003. After this section, the wonderful par-5 17th gives you another opportunity to reflect on Braid's masterly design touch.

The layout at Grange is definitely parkland in style, with an abundance of trees of countless varieties. Some "tighten" the fairways to an "intimidating" extent, while others occupy rather "creative" positions ... a tree must be cleared if you are to land your tee-shot on the putting surface at the par-3 4th. Grange is a well regarded and popular parkland layout, not least with the relatively recent addition of new and impressive clubhouse facilities. Well worth a visit.

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.
