Clane Golf Course

Clane Club Crest

Clane Golf Club is located within the grounds of Clongowes Wood School. It is, a picturesque 9-hole Parkland with mature tree lined fairways. The facilities are very basic if at all but a leisurely round of golf is assured to those who play here.

It was the home club of my dear friend Liam Murphy who died on a golfing holiday and was buried with his beloved 6-iron. Liam loved his golf and I suppose he got his wish to die on the golf course. However it was 30 years too early. Liam had the course record here for years. I trust he will set a few more in the golf course in the sky.

Members Achievements

Captain 2001, Austin Daly and his Captain's Prize winner Ian Crofton came 3rd in the National Finals of the Skoda-Irish Independent County Masters at The Royal Dublin Golf Club in October 2001. They returned 43 points to be beaten on a count-back for 2nd on the last six-holes.
Clane was the home club of my late good friend Liam Murphy, Liam was taken from us at a young age, our hope is that wherever he has gone, there is a magnificent golf course (there). He loved life and the game.
