Coolnaskeagh, Delgany, Co Wicklow, Just off the N11 at the Glenview Hotel exit (Junction 9),
The parkland course plays much like a links course thanks to its sandy based greens and tees. Located just half an hours drive from Dublin city centre, it is ideally placed and easily accessible.
The entire layout has been designed and built to USGA specifications and course designed Peter McEvoy’s concept was to build a course capable of delighting the player with its conditions and aesthetics.
Major remodelling work was done on the bunker to the left of the third green and the two right hand fairway bunkers on the 18th hole and all three provide a stern test. Amongst its features is a five tier double green shared by the eighth and 10th holes. Sandwiched between these two is the delightful par-5 ninth, which measures 500 yards off the back tees and brings with it its fair share of heartbreaks as well as successes.
Golfers of all levels will find the course a challenge with its natural slopes and valleys combined with McEvoy’s trademark undulating greens, 90 bunkers and magnificent views of the sea.
