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 For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Kilkenny holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Kilkenny Golf Club and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Played here as a visitor on a Saturday morning and really enjoyed. Super friendly members and a great local course. Described perfectly by a member I met who said "it's not too hard but it's also not too easy". When I played in July 2019 the course was in excellent condition with fast greens. It's not the longest course but well worth a visit if you are ever in Kilkenny.
  • Well maintained course with interesting par 3,s. Friendly staff and nice food after golf. An enjoyable experience
