Malahide golf club Dublin
Malahide Golf Course
Malahide is a 27 Hole Championship Parkland Course originally designed by Eddie Hackett, remodeled by Michael Craddock in 2002 and subsequently redeveloped by the renowned Golf Architect Jeff Howes in 2007 (Blue Nine) and most recently in 2010 (Red Nine).. You will require careful alignment on the many doglegs or navigating shots over water hazards. The many raised greens require accurate club selection and shot judgment.
Malahide moved to its present location in 1990, where Eddie Hackett combined the pleasant ambience of parkland with climatic elements of seaside links.

History of Malahide
Nathaniel Hone, who married Magdalen Jameson in 1872, the daughter of the famous distiller and owner of the nearby Portmarnock links, was the founder of Malahide Golf Club. He was one of Ireland's most famous artists at the time.
An article on 18th July, 1885, in "Sport" records "Last year not a few visitors to and inhabitants of Malahide were startled by the apparition of a well-known Dublin citizen playing a game which was aptly described as "a cross between hurling and hole and taw" over the sandbanks along that almost unrivalled strand."
The "Irish Golfer" 24th January, 1900, records "The club owes its origins to the Rev. William Reid, who when on a visit to his brother-in-law Mr. Nathaniel Hone, now of St. Doloughs Park, but then residing in Malahide, saw, with a Scotsman’s eye, the capabilities of the stretch of sand dunes laying to the east of the town, for the Royal and Ancient game. Mr. Hone took up the project and enrolled a small band of embryo golfers, which has now grown into one of the largest and most influential of the clubs, with a nine-hole course, in Ireland." The Malahide club instituted in 1892 is almost unique in one respect, that its lady members pay the same entrance fee £2 and annual fee £1 as the gentlemen but they also have similar rights and privileges in every way except that they cannot serve as officers of the club."
In 1906, the club acquired another 16 acres and three new holes were laid out. This move was more than likely precipitated by the inroads of the sea on the old course. The club moved inland in 1927. Then in 1990, the club moved to its present location at Grange where twenty-seven holes were built and the fine new clubhouse was opened.
