Knightsbrook Golf Club is home to a relatively new parkland addition to the excellent golfing scene around Dublin. It also extends the fine lineage of courses designed by Christy O'Connor Jnr, one of Ireland's legendary Ryder Cup heroes. At times quite open, at others more tree-lined, the layout here is both challenging and creative, with nine small lakes and the meandering Knightsbrook river threatening on several holes.
The course's gently undulating terrain provides plenty of interest and pleasant views onto the surrounding County Meath countryside. With the par-3s coming at the 3rd and 5th on the front-nine, and the 16th and 18th on the inward nine, the middle section of this layout, with its series of excellently crafted par-4s and 5s, is guaranteed to thoroughly test your game from tee to green.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.
Must book in advance.
Credit cards accepted. Contact club for full details, discounts, Stay&Play packages, etc. [Last updated: 2018].
