Mountrath Golf Club was founded in 1929 and affiliated to G.U.I in 1932. Originally a 9 hole course, it was extended to 18 holes in 1994. The course is situated 3km (2 miles) south of Mountrath, just off the N1 (approximately one hour from Dublin). Golfers will relish its fine, long fairways and well-manicured greens. Deep, well-shaped bunkers are scattered liberally throughout. The River Nore flows through the course and the old mill, once used to generate electricity, stands close by. The Slieve Bloom Mountains cab be seen in the background. The course presents a challenge to any golfer and is guaranteed to test the driving, pitching and putting ability of the best. You are always sure of a welcome at the 19th hole.
