Newbridge Golf Course

Newbridge Club Crest

An 18-hole course set on Kildare parkland, Newbridge Golf Club opened in 1995. Fully affiliated to the GUI in 1997, there are now 300 members. The course and its facilities improve year on year, with 13 USGA sand greens now in place, and the remaining five due to be upgraded by 2008. The holes around the turn are particularly challenging, with water features giving the golfer extra to watch out for.
Over 40,000 trees of many varieties have been planted, contributing to the peaceful and relaxed atmosphere. The clubhouse provides all the usual facilities, from food and drink and a warm fire to showers and a terrace overlooking the course.

The first 9 holes are dominated by the brooding presence of the Hill of Allen, home of the legendary Fionn MacCumhaill. The third, sixth skirt the edge of the Bog of Allen, where you can smell the blooming heather and hear cuckoo and curlews cry. The course is noted for its wildlife, with herons, moorhens, kingfisher and wild ducks, hence the club's logo. There is an active grey partridge and pheasant breeding programme underway. The course has also benefited from a prodigious planting of trees with Japanese larch, cedars of Lebanon and Norwegian Maple featuring along with the more common place oak and copper beech to name a few.

The visitor is assured of a warm welcome and can relax in the fine clubhouse set in the beautiful country side of North Kildare only 30-minutes drive from Dublin.
