Mayobridge Golf Course

Mayobridge Club Crest

Up until recently Mayobridge was a 12 Hole Course, but the addition of two par 3's and four par 4's has brought the Course to a par 67 4,354 metre 18 Hole witha Standard Scratch of 63.

The Course is set amongst lakes mature woodland and old buildings, with spectacular views of the Mourne Mountains.

The course is a full 18-hole Par 67 layout that may not be the longest, but it more than makes up for that in its character & scenery which is in abundance around the course.

It is often said that Mayobridge Golf Club is unique in that it is played amongst old farm cottages from centuries past. The surroundings are quiet and picturesque. The course itself can be challenging to any standard of golfer with many water hazards and some tricky greens. Featuring only 1 par 5 but many , par 3 and par 4 holes it is a course that can be completed quite quickly in comparison to some, a good 2 ball should take no longer than 3 hours and a 4 ball just over 4 Hours. Many of our members find the course an ideal length.

With a lot of new machinery purchased over 2009 the course promises to be in top shape for the 2010 season and is constantly being improved upon. With the fantastic new clubhouse and restaurant the club is now showing people just how enjoyable golf is at Mayobridge.

Members Achievements

History of Mayobridge

In his mind's eye he could see wasteland around his home transformed. Rolling greens, trees and shrubs, lakes and ponds. His dream was an ambitious one - a Golf Club for Mayobridge.
     "i first had the idea about ten or fifteen years ago" said Mr Fegan. "I was a member of Warrenpoint golf Club and thought that Mayobridge would be ideally suited for one."
    Mr Fegan should be taking it easy and enjoying a restful retirement. He is after all, in his seventies. He enjoys a puff of his pipe, but is by no means ready to settle into his slippers. He's much too busy running Mayobridge Golf Club. A club he constructed  in his own time, by his own hand and with his own money. A cattle and poultry farmer, his only real knowledge of golf was as a player. He and his son Shane, who has been a keen golfer since childhood did all their own research. They studied the layouts of existing golf courses. They read up on green keeping and seed mixtures. Eventually they came up with a design - and then the real work started.
   Over two miles of ditches were removed. Thousands of tonnes of waste was cleared. All the fields were dug up and filled with stones for drainage. They were then re-clayed and top-dressed with special seeding. About 1,000 different types of shrubs and trees were planted. a series of eight new lakes and ponds were then created for drainage set. As Mr Fegan puts it, "It was back breaking - the sort of thing you'd only do once in a life time."
    The result is a unique and quite stunning course. "No other course has a layout like this. And because the land was inhabited until about thirty years ago, cottages are still dotted about. It's really very scenic. In summer we get families coming to picnic around the course," he said.
    The course is thriving. When it opened in 1999 it has nine holes. It now has eighteen. It has helped to boost the Mayobridge area, with keen golfers from throughout Ireland visiting for a game. Professional golfer Paddy Gribben, who has competed against Nick Faldo, is a regular. All Ireland winner Louise Coffey plays at the club too. Its about to be affiliated to the Golfing Union of Ireland. So Mr Fegan's Club will now be able to compete in Inter club competitions throughout Ireland and beyond.
    But Mr Fegan will not rest on his laurels. He has just received planning permission for the next part of his project - a proper clubhouse. Mr Fegan had a dream. With Dedication, determination and patience he has made it a reality. And his thoughts on his achievement? "I never have time for a good game of golf anymore."
