Tramore Golf Club: This gently undulating parkland golf course, with wonderful views onto the Comeragh Mountains in the background, has a fine reputation amongst local and visiting golfers alike. Very little has changed about the course since it was originally constructed; it quickly matured into one of the best courses in the south of Ireland.
The relatively flat terrain is home to good-width fairways and not too many bunkers, although two streams flow through the course, creating one or two water hazards to be negotiated on your way round. At just under 6,700 yards off the tips, Tramore is a fair test for golfers of all abilities - but don't be fooled by its undeniable beauty, stray shots do not always go unpunished.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and Saturdays; no visitors on Sundays.
Must book in advance.
Credit cards accepted. Contact club for full details, discounts, packages, etc. [Last updated: 2018].
Soft spikes only. Players generally walk this course. Golf carts available for hire (if pre-booked).
Originally located much closer to the sea, the original Tramore 9-hole course used to take a fearful battering during storms. The course was progressively moved inland, until, in early 1939, the Club moved to its present site on Newtown Hill, about 1 km from the sea. In 1987 Tramore hosted the first of its three Irish Close Championships.
2019 Golf World rating: 84th best course in Ireland.
