Moate golf club Westmeath
Moate Golf Course
Originally founded in 1900 Moate Golf Club moved to its present location in 1940 as a 9-hole course. To accommodate the growing membership it was extended to 18-holes in 1993. This Bobby Browne designed course is set in gently rolling parkland and presents a wide variety of challenges to both the beginner and the experienced golfer. Every shot presents a new challenge and precise placing of the tee shot will greatly aid your score.
Moate Golf Club is noted far and wide for its hospitality and friendliness of its members. The new clubhouse built in 1997 provides all the facilities that the golfer of today requires and is well worth a visit.

History of Moate
Instituted 1900 affiliated 1940
Golf can be traced back to 1900 at Moate. The "Irish Golfer" 23rd January, 1901, records "During the past months the Royal and Ancient game has established a firm footing in the sporting little town of Moate, Co. Westmeath. Links have been secured along a line of gravel hills adjacent to the town and no exertion has been spared by the Hon. Secretary to make them as perfect as possible. They afford quite a diversity of hazards"
The first President was Mr. C. O’Donoghue, the first Captain was H. A. S. Upton, and it had a membership of over fifty with the men paying an annual subscription of £1 and the ladies ten shillings.
It would appear the club went into decline between 1937 and 1940 when it was revived. There is a fine new clubhouse and there are now eighteen-holes.
