Ballyhaunis Golf Course

Ballyhaunis Club Crest

Founded in 1928, Ballyhaunis Golf Club is a lovely 9-hole course with different tee boxes to differentiate the front 9 from the back nine. It is an interesting mature parkland course with mature trees, strategically placed bunkers and attractive spinney all coming into play while playing to the elevated greens. Its feature hole is the 359 metres Par 4 index 5, 9th. The back nine is certainly a few shots harder than the opening nine.

Ballyhaunis is located in a beautiful part of the country only seven miles from the Village of Knock. It has a fine clubhouse and the warmest West of Ireland welcomes are extended to visitors at Ballyhaunis Golf Club.
