Greenacres Golf Centre Golf Course

Greenacres Golf Centre Club Crest

Although a relatively new course Green Acres opened in 1996, but has rapidly developed into a mature 18-hole Parkland Course offering members and visitors alike all the modern facilities that come with the many new courses to be found in Ireland.

Designed by Frank Ainsworth and measuring 5,839 yards it is reasonably short with a standard scratch of 68 and a Par 70 it has several testing and memorable holes, not least the 486 yards 9th and the finishing hole at 479 yards protected by water on the right-hand-side will test the very best of golfers. Grace Hill boasts a very fine 20-bay floodlit Driving Range where Roy Shillen and his team will endeavour to improve your game if you unlike me are prepared to listen to the good advice given.

The visitor is always assured of a warm welcome here and full catering is provided in the modern clubhouse.
