Clonmel Golf Course

Clonmel Club Crest

Aim your sights high-play one of Ireland’s most scenic 18-hole courses

Clonmel Golf Club, founded in 1911, is one of the oldest golf clubs in the province of Munster . A rolling parkland layout designed by the renowned course architect, Eddie Hackett, it is a mature 18-hole par 72 course measuring 6,365 yards. The ladies course measures 5,516 yards, par 74.

Set in the foothills of the Comeragh Mountains with magnificent views across the valley of the River Suir and the rolling Waterford and Tipperary countryside towards Slievenamon, the scenery and the surrounding landscape will take your breath away!

Golfers will enjoy the many natural features of the course - the wooded nature of its surroundings, the fresh air of the elevated landscape, the views, the flora and the fauna that includes foxes, hares and fallow deer.

Unique features of the course include its undulating fairways, meandering streams, mature trees and testing greens all of which add to both the beauty and the challenge of the course.

The Signature Hole is the 14th (stroke index 3), a wonderful 185-yards par 3 played from an elevated tee down to a generous but challenging green. With out-of-bounds to the right, with a stream and a bunker to the front and sometimes with a swirling wind to contend with, the hole calls for an accurate tee shot and putting skill if a par or better is to be achieved.

Clonmel Golf Club is conveniently located 2hrs 30mins driving time from Dublin , 1hr 30mins from Cork and Limerick and 45mins from Waterford and Kilkenny. International access points are at Rosslare Ferryport (2hrs), Shannon Airport (2hrs), Cork Airport (2hrs) and Waterford Regional Airport (1hr).

The old and historic town of Clonmel is an ideal base from which to explore the unrivalled sights, scenery and amenities of South Tipperary and West Waterford, including the Rock of Cashel, Cahir Castle , the Swiss Cottage, Mount Mellary Abbey and the Nire Valley.

History of Clonmel

Instituted 1911 affiliated 1912

Clonmel Golf Club owes its existence to Mr. Hackett the County Surveyor in 1912. There were 200 members, which was huge for a new club in its first year. The Irish Golfers Guide 1914 gives the Earl of Donoughmore as the first President and goes on to state "The scenery is very fine, the course, situated on high mountain land excellent and the air most exhilarating" There is a record in the Irish Field 7th January 1922 which states "For the 3rd time in twelve months some person or persons has cut up the greens" The same paper on 4th March carried an article on the effects of the recently signed treaty on the club, it reads "The departure of British troops brings in its trail hardship to many, Murphy, the Clonmel professional, will be out of a job soon as the club cannot afford to keep a professional owing to the loss of military members. Murphy used to be at Stillorgan Park and it is hoped some club may be able to give him employment"

The club went eighteen-hole in 1973.
