Where2Golf says: 

Mount Temple Golf Club: When the Dolan family decided to transform part of their pleasantly undulating farmland into a championship golf course, they wanted above all to retain the splendid naturalness of the rural environment. The 250 year-old farm buildings were converted into a charming golf clubhouse. The grass was cut to appropriate lengths in the surrounding fields (without any artificial mounding or earthmoving) and within six months the course was ready for play. To the surprise of some and expectation of others, the layout created is full of good golf holes, presenting an enjoyable golfing test that is both fair and challenging. Light rough separates the fairways, making ball finding relatively easy, while trees and water are not overly in play on the relatively open terrain. Even the greens follow the god-given contours of the land, creating a few serious putting challenges, not least at the par-4 13th. Although blessed with lovely views across the midlands countryside, and usually a good breeze blowing around the course, this is not going to be a contender for future Irish Ryder Cup bids, but as a very natural and scenic layout, Mount Temple has plenty to offer handicappers of all levels.
