County Longford Golf Course

County Longford Club Crest

County Longford Golf Club is located just outside Longford on the Old Dublin Road (the R393) and is only 1 hour from the M50. It is newly redesigned and was officially reopened in May 2005. It was founded in 1894 and is a parkland course with mature trees. A stream comes into play at a number of holes, including the last, so you won't be able to let your guard down until you are safely back in the clubhouse. Additional water features have also been introduced, especially at the signature 13th hole.

It's a scenic place to play golf with panoramic views of Longford town and the surrounding countryside to be savoured on almost every hole of a course which measures 5,981 m and has a par of 72. Trolley and buggy hire is available while the clubhouse has a bar, restaurant, and pool facilities.

History of County Longford

The early records of the club are missing and the earliest available are for 1913. The Golfing Annual 1909-10, tells us it was founded in 1900, with twenty members, the Captain was J. Boyers and the Hon. Secretary was S. Boyd, Ulster Bank , Longford. "the course of nine-holes varying from 95 to 414 yd‘s is a mile from the station"

The Irish Golfing Guide 1916 tells us, "The course is pleasantly situated and is given at a nominal rent by the Earl of Longford, who has generously provided a small clubhouse. "Play begins in October, and ends on May 1st."

The GUI records give 24th February 1910 as the date of affiliation.
