Powerscourt Golf Club (East course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1996

Powerscourt Golf Club (East course): In scenery reminiscent of the Perthshire Hills that surround Gleneagles in Scotland, the Powerscourt Estate is home to 36-holes of excellent golf. The East course, like the West, combines a fine mix of undulating holes in a relatively open, and occasionally wooded landscape.

The layout includes copious bunkering, which lends clear definition to the good-width fairways. For those really wayward shots, thick grassy rough awaits. The well-defended greens run fast and true.

Scenic views onto the surrounding Wicklow Hills, the pointed-peak of Sugarloaf Mountain, a glimpse or two of the Irish Sea and the tranquility of the famous Powerscourt Estate all combine to ensure a thoroughly enjoyable setting, whichever of the two courses you play.

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.
