Powerscourt Golf Course

Powerscourt Club Crest

Powerscourt Golf Club is situated within the magnificent 1,000 acre Powerscourt Estate in the Garden of Ireland just 12-miles south of Dublin city centre.

This inspiring par 72 championship course with 18 of the best shaped putting surfaces in the country has been built to USGA recommendations and measures just over 7,000 yd’s.

A free draining parkland course with links characteristics, Powerscourt tees, fairways, bunkers and sand based greens are of exceptional quality.

Set in Ireland’s most beautiful countryside with an abundance of mature trees and natural features with stunning views to the sea and the Sugar Loaf Mountain. Powerscourt is simply an exceptional experience for all golfers.

It was the venue for the AIB Seniors Championship in 2001 and a new 18-hole course has recently been construction.

With the opening of the new West Course and the redesigned clubhouse, Powerscourt has established itself as a golf centre to rival any in Ireland.

This new course was designed by David McLay Kidd, whose portfolio includes the acclaimed Bandon Dunes in Oregon USA. Like the East Course, the West offers a variety of challenging holes while presenting a new perspective on the stunning scenery of the Powerscourt Estate. Possessing the highest standard of tees, greens and fairways you’ll find anywhere in the country it was created with top class Tournaments in mind, however it can be enjoyed by golfers of all abilities.
