Rush Golf Course

Rush Club Crest

Rush Golf Club is the most northerly Links course in County Dublin. The course is maintained to the highest standard with all the features and challenges associated with Links golf. With a par of 70 and standard scratch 69, measuring 5,603 metres off the blue markers and 4,691 Metres for the Ladies with a standard scratch of 68..

As a nine-hole course the number of members has remained low and this in turn ensures there is a friendly atmosphere with a warm welcome for everyone. The club has recently opened its new state-of-the-art clubhouse that further enhances the charm of this fine Links. A beautiful panoramic view of Lambay Island and Dublin Bay can be seen from the 1st, 2nd, 10th and 11th tees.

Rush is one of the few clubs that has been fortunate enough to keep its old world charm and timesheets are rarely necessary. So go and enjoy a relaxing game of golf with all the challenges this fine Links has to offer. A warm North County Dublin welcome awaits you in the clubhouse where you will be making plans to revisit this little gem tucked away beside the historic village of Rush.

A word of warning if you are going to play Rush give yourself a little extra time to find the course.
