The Royal Curragh Golf Club is Ireland’s oldest golf course. It has been completely revamped and is now a challenging heathland course of 6,585 yards. Research has proven that golf was first played on the plains of the Curragh in County Kildare in 1852.

The New course layout was designed by Patrick Merrigan. The work was carried out by Fanning Golf. Five new sand based greens were constructed for new 8th, 10th, 11th, 12th and 13th holes.
