#6 of 11 in Outdoors in Kilkenny
Set in a 200 year old forest, Castlecomer's course provides a great test of golf combined with breath taking views of the local terrain. With the development of this course completed in 2003, it is clear to everyone at Castlecomer Golf Club that Pat Ruddy has designed a unique Golf Course.

In total thirteen new holes were incorporated into the eighteen hole layout with tees and greens built to USGA standards. The holes have sand based fairways with irrigation built in. The construction of the latter from the outset is rare for parkland layouts in Ireland, but certainly ensures top class, year round playing conditions, no matter what the prevailing climatic conditions.

One by one, as construction took place, each hole surpassed the last in it's stunning beauty and architecture. As more and more golfers are playing this magnificant course, it's full splendour is becoming increasingly apparent day by day
