Powerscourt estate, Enniskerry Bray, Co Wicklow, Ireland
Powerscourt estate had been owned by the Slazeger family since 1961 before it was conceived that a championship course could be built here.
In 1996 that course was opened and quickly gained the reputation as one of the finest in Ireland. It cemented that reputation by hosting the Irish PGA Championship only 2 years later and the European Seniors Tour in 2001.
The course is built around the natural contours of the land which once was a strategic site for Anglo-Normas who came to the country in the 12th century. It was designed by successful Walker Cup captain Peter McEvoy to represent a challenging but enjoyable round for golfers of all abilities.
With extensive bunkering and some very challenging long holes this is not one for the faint-hearted. The fairways, however, are quite open and receptive to a powerful drive and unless something goes seriously wrong, you shouldn’t have to worry about losing too many balls around here.
One of the country’s most spectacular resorts you’ll really be spoiling yourself with a round at Powerscourt.
