Cahir Park Golf Course

Cahir Park Club Crest

Cahir Park Golf Club has been in existence since 1968 designed by the late Eddie Hackett it is, an18-hole Parkland. The course is divided in two by the River Suir the course has many fine and challenging holes, but none more so than the 7th at 406 mts off the blue stakes this hole will and has tested the best of golfers.

Cahir Park Golf Club constructed a magnificent clubhouse, which leaves the golfer wanting for nothing he or she could require before or after the round of golf. A very warm welcome awaits the visitor at the 19th just one word of warning, if the conversation is about hurling, which is quite likely in this part of the country. Try and avoid using the word Kilkenny or D. J. Carey (of course he should have been a golfer!)
