Ballyneety Golf Course

Ballyneety Club Crest

Ballyneety was known as Limerick County, before it re-opened in 2013. It is a quality parkland course, a par-72 6,171m with a standard scratch of 74 off the back tees. Designed by Ryder Cup player Des Smyth. Opened in 1994, Ballyneety has been described by amateures and professionals alike as a robust but very fair golfing challenge. It is a high quality built to top specification and is meticulously maintained providing a beautiful and elegant layout with a wide variety of shot-making opportunities to stunningly true greens. Some of the second shots are particularly noteworthy.
The practice facilities are outstanding and are used as a training base by the Irish Ladies Golf Team. There is a fully equipped Driving Range, two large putting greens and a specially designed "short game" practice area.
The high quality found on the golf course is carried over to the visitor facilities. The Clubhouse, is an award winning design, provides first class customer comforts as well as wonderful vistas of the golf course and the Golden Vale.
The course is built on part of the Croker Estate, the ancestral home of the notorious "Boss Croker" of Tamany Hall fame. It is set in the rolling hills just 5-miles from Limerick City, just outside the village of Ballyneety. The visitor is assured of a warm welcome and a memorable game of golf.
Societies are welcome and group rates are available.
