St. Margaret's Golf & Country Golf Course

St. Margaret's Golf & Country  Club Crest

St. Margaret’s has been designed as a championship golf course and has already hosted three International Tournaments. It, boasts big dramatic holes like the roller coaster twelfth, which rolls between two lakes and across a babbling brook to a majestic elevated green. The facility has been under the management of Synergy Golf since November 2014 which has seen it go from strength to strength.

Seven of the par-4 holes are over 400 yd‘s long and the mighty 8th is all of 525 yd‘s - a big challenge for the biggest hitters. As well as awesome struggles there are broad forgiving fairways, neat par threes and greens that play very true on this fascinating course. As you cross a stream of stepping stones, or step back to admire your second landing inches from the pin, you’ll find more to enjoy every day at St. Margaret’s.

Ryder Cup Captain (2002) Sam Torrance has praised the 18th as "The best finishing hole I have ever seen...and possibly the best and most exiting in the world".

St. Margaret's was the venue for the 2004 Anglo-Irish Bank Irish PGA Championship.

Societies are welcome and group rates are available.
