Where2Golf says: 

Powerscourt Golf Club (West 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 West course, like the East, combines a fine mix of undulating holes, laid out in a relatively open, and occasionally wooded landscape.

The views of surrounding hills, rural farmland, Powerscourt House, and the pointed-peak of Sugarloaf Mountain ensure an enjoyable outing on the West course. The layout's back-nine climbs to the par-4 15th from where you'll be greeted by wonderful views onto the Irish Sea.

In keeping with its stablemate, the West course is also defined by pleasantly undulating terrain, copious bunkering giving good definition to the holes, and greens that are fast and true.

Did you know?

Powerscourt Golf Club is situated in the grounds of the magnificent Powerscourt Estate in Co. Wicklow, originally an important site for the Anglo-Normans who came to Ireland in the 12th century. Powerscourt is now one of the best known country estates in Ireland, and includes the world-famous Powerscourt Gardens as well as Ireland's highest waterfall.

The estate's name comes from the Le Poer (Power) family, who built a castle here in the early 14th century. In 1961 the Slazenger family purchased the estate from the 9th Viscount Powerscourt, and subsequently set about building the East Course, which opened in 1996.
