Virginia Golf Course

Virginia Club Crest

Located in the grounds of The Park Hotel just outside Virginia Town, this very scenic golf course is a pleasure to play. Straddling Lough Ramor the course has six additional tee boxes making for greater verity as you play the 18-holes.

The fairways are tight and the course is awash with mature trees requiring accuracy and good club selection together with a delicate touch around the greens. A short course measuring only 4,134 metres with a standard scratch of 62 and a most unusual course record of 57 shot by G. Eagleton on 25th July 1993. The Ladies course measures 4,139 metres with a Par of 67 and a standard scratch of 65.

Although the club has its own clubhouse, you will have to retire to the hotel for a drink and a meal, this is no bad thing as the hotel is a 3 with a AA award wining restaurant.
