Corrstown Golf Course

Corrstown Club Crest

Corrstown Golf Club has achieved in its short history a success envied by new and old clubs alike. The Club boasts two courses: the championship 18-hole Par 72 6,298 m with a standard scratch of 72 off the blue tees, known as the "River Course", complete with fairways mounds, burns, lakes and water hazards, and the all weather greens are to be amongst the best in Ireland.

The 9-hole "Orchard Course" is set amidst thousands of mature trees, offering a peaceful game of golf in a challenging, yet relaxed environment. Both courses were designed by Eddie Connaughton and clearly reflect the mind of an accomplished golfer in tune with nature.

The signature hole at Corrstown is without doubt the 18th hole, a demanding 382 m Par 4 index 3 with a daunting approach to a full island green.

The modern Clubhouse operates with a very open and relaxed atmosphere, which is thoroughly enjoyed by members and visitors alike. The Club’s Bar and Restaurant have an excellent reputation for the cuisine, beer and wine, which is served daily. Visitors are always welcomed at Corrstown and groups and societies are also catered for.

Societies are welcome and group rates are available.
