Boyle Golf Course

Boyle Club Crest

Situated one mile from Boyle Town on the main Roscommon road Boyle Golf Course is a 9-hole parkland course. The course consists of one par-5, eleven par-4 and six par-3 holes totalling 5,105 metres in length.  Par for the course is 67 made up 33 out and 34 in.  Only three holes have the same tee-box ensuring that every hole has a different play strategy.

In 2001 the clubhouse was renovated to include a men’s locker and shower room and upgraded ladies changing rooms.  A new kitchen facility was installed and the car par was extended and upgraded.

While the course does not have bunkers there are plenty of hazards and Out of Bounds to ensure a high degree of difficulty. The undulating nature of the course means the golfer faces a high number of varying shots on each hole.

People are welcome to play at Boyle during day light hours every day with few exceptions.  Green fees are -15 for 2008 and new members are always welcome.
