Ballaghaderreen Golf Course

Ballaghaderreen Club Crest

Ballaghaderreen Golf Club is a mature Parkland Course it is relatively flat course, with out of bounds coming into play on three of the holes. The 166 metres Par 3 5th is played to a well-protected postage stamp green. A disused quarry comes into play on the 1st and 9th.

Designed by Paddy Skerritt it measures 5,339 metres Par 70 with a standard scratch of 67.

Ballaghaderreen Golf Club is affiliated to the Golfing Union of Ireland and to the Irish Ladies Golfing Union. The Club was founded in 1936 and has had a number of homes , but arrived at its present location in the early 1950's. The Club has approximately 300 members with a split of approx 50/50 between Local and Distance Members.

The Course is a 9 hole parkland course, on which accuracy is essential. No, not because of bunkers, but because of strategically placed Trees. Trees play a major part on every hole, or for the better players trees play no part at all! There are alternate tees on six of the back nine holes, so there is little chance to get complacent. Par for the 18 holes is 70, course length 5339 metres for men and 4663 metres for ladies and SS for men is 67 and for ladies 68. The course is situated some 3 miles outside Ballaghaderreen and is well sign-posted from the town.

2007 President Martin Green and 2008 Captain Tom Kiernan are both Distance members. They are welcome to bring friends and wt our Green fees providing a days play, they get excellent value for money as well.
