St Margaret's Golf & Country Club

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

Est. 1992

St Margaret's Golf & Country Club: Despite its proximity to Dublin International Airport this undulating, parkland course is not that much affected by aircraft noise, so one's concentration can remain on the more immediate hazards - well-placed bunkers, the occasional gorse-lined fairway and plenty of water hazards (courtesy of the River Ward that runs through the course). In fact for most tee-shots there is plenty of room, and the rough is generally quite user-friendly, good for getting societies round in under four-and-a-half hours. But when the occasion demands it, as for the several professional tournaments St Margaret's has hosted, the 6,900 yards can be transformed into something a good deal more intimidating.
