Fintona Golf Course

Fintona Club Crest

Fintona Golf Club has been in existence since 1904 and celebrates its centenary year this year together with Roscommon Golf Club, may I wish both clubs a pleasant year of celebrations.

Fintona Golf Club is considered to be one of the finest 9-hole courses in the country and I'm certainly not going to dispute that. The club has a magnificent clubhouse and on my few visits to the club there was always a old golfer to listen to with interest.

Fintona has a superb Trout Stream running through it which only adds to the enjoyment of playing this mature and picturesque little gem set in this beautiful part of the country.

History of Fintona

 Institutes 1904 affiliated 1926

There is some confusion as to when golf was first played at Fintona, with some claiming it started in 1896 there is no evidence to prove this. The early records only go back to 1939, and it would appear, that a former Secretary, used the early records to fuel the burning of rubbish in his backyard.

An account in Irish Life on 4th September 1914, clarifies some of the early history. The club was private-owned, by C. W. L. Brown-Lecky, who presented the earliest challenge cup, in 1913. The course is of nine-holes, was open all-year-round, and had been laid out ten years before, "under the supervision of Mr. Taylor". The GUI, give an affiliation date of 1926, for the club.
