Tramore Golf Course
You will receive a very warm welcome when you visit Tramore Golf Club. They look forward to welcoming all of our members and visiting guests to our great Club during the year for what promises to be another very enjoyable year at Tramore. They hope to get the opportunity to meet you during your visit through-out the year.
The Old Course was ranked inside the Top 50 of Irish Courses and sat inside the Top 20 in Parkland Courses. They like to think of Tramore Golf Club as a Parkland Course with a Links Wind! From its founding days back in 1894, Tramore Golf Club has stood proudly across three locations in Tramore, from its original location on the Back Strand, to Graun Hill before eventually settling in its current location over 80 years ago.
A major redesign of the Championship Course coupled with the development of a new nine-hole layout has established Tramore as one of the premier golfing venues in Ireland. Host of many championships including the Irish Close championship as recently as 2015, Tramore Golf Club offers a unique challenge to golfers of all levels.
They will welcome you, not only to the Golf Club, but also to a vibrant seaside resort, a place with something for everyone and a great starting point for your adventure in the South East or even an unmissable location to finish your journey in this great country. Our members and visitors continue to enjoy the long sandy beach (Tramore is the Irish for “Great Beach”), world class surfing facilities, a great range of pubs and restaurants and the warm welcome extended by the local community.
Tramore Golf Club is located less than 100Km from our three major Irish airports and just an hour from the ferry port in Rosslare. Our hope and wish for the year ahead is that the Club and all of its members and visitors continue to thrive and, once again, we would like to extend a warm welcome to Tramore Golf Club during 2022.
Tramore Golf Club is located in Co. Waterford and is one of the oldest golf clubs in Ireland. The members at Tramore Golf Club voted in 2006 to work with internationally renowned golf course designer Jeff Howes to remodel the existing course, while preserving it’s integrity and to also create a new nine holes of similar quality. The result is a fantastic blend of “the Old and the New”. Tramore now boasts 27 holes with sand based greens constructed to USPGA standard.
The Old-Course has established itself as one of the premier parkland courses in Ireland. It has hosted the Irish Close Championship, multiple professional tournaments and major club competitions over the years. The course stretches across 6,700 yards and it can be challenging for golfers of all levels, characterised by its gently undulating greens – your putting game will be tested throughout the round.
The Newtown Course at Tramore Golf Club a par 35, which stretches 3,100 yards (2,882m). The first hole is one of the narrowest fairways in the country, carved out of the forest that originally ran between two holes on the original layout. While shorter than the other two layouts, and containing 3 Par 3’s it provides no less of a challenge. Many members would choose the 4th hole as the highlight of the course – a 200 yard Par 3 in which a lake guarding front and left requires an accurately placed tee shot into the prevailing wind. The lake is home to a lot of wildlife including rabbits, ducks, swans and more.
The Newtown Nine finishes with a par 3 that contains a meandering stream in-front of the green. Similar to the 1st, this hole has been carved out of the old Forrest that separated the 13th and 16th on the Old-Course. This course offers tremendous value for those looking to play a challenging nine-hole course.

History of Tramore
The "Golfing Annual" 1896-97 records the Waterford and Tramore Golf Club as having affiliated to the GUI. There is some confusion as to the exact date of institution of this club. It would appear that the club went into decline as a result of storm damage that hit the club on St. Stephen's Day, 1896, when the clubhouse was destroyed and completely covered some of the best greens with shingle.
The "Irish Times" on the 1st January 1902, reports "The first AGM of the recently revived Tramore Golf Club was held in the Grand Hotel on Monday. The course is situated on the Burrow, the golf clubhouse, last hole and first tee being only a stone’s throw from the grandstand of the well-known racecourse. The course is on the land belonging to Mr. Martin J. Murphy J. P., at a rent of nothing a year" The club moved later that year to an eighteen-hole nearer the town that was laid out by Tom Hood of the Royal Dublin. The "Irish Golfing Guide" 1912 records another tragic episode in the club's history "A new course has been laid out by Willie Park, owing to the inroads of the sea on the old course. The new course promises well and commands beautiful views of the sea and land". The club remained at this location until a new eighteen-holes were built at its present location in 1937. The course was designed by Capt. H. L. C. Tippet, of Walton Heath, on a 130-acre site.
