Rathsallagh House is very lucky to be surrounded by the magnificent Rathsallagh Golf Club. It is a Championship Course measuring close to 7,000 yards with a par of 72. Set on 270 acres of rolling parkland. Rathsallagh Golf Club is remarkable for the number, position and maturity of the trees on the course and the definition they give on approach to the excellent U.S.G.A specified greens. The bunkering has been described as some of the best in Ireland, both in terms of construction and intelligent placement. Click here to see the latest Drone Video of the Course.
The Club was originally opened in 1994 by the O’Flynn family , however since 2015 it has been under new ownership . This magnificent course - originally designed by Peter McEvoy and the late, great Christy O’Connor Junior – continues to thrive and has now seen some considerable investment and hard work put in by its new owners. Over the years it has challenged and delighted golfers of all abilities – but now a fresh challenge lies in store.
Over the past 12 months or so the course has been reconfigured so that play begins and ends in front of the clubhouse and a new Par 3 hole has been built in the woods between the old 1st and 2nd holes bridging a small river. The old 10th hole (index 1) is now the opening hole – so the ‘wow factor’ is evident right from your very first shot. The re-routing occurs during the middle of your game and players will intertwine the ‘old’ back and front nines for a totally fresh experience.
The new 11th hole will be the signature hole of the eagerly anticipated redesign. It is a par 3 measuring 127 metres from the Black Tee and 110 metres from the Ladies’ Tee. When golfers finish on the 18th hole it is just a few steps away from the verandah of the stunning clubhouse.
“Since re-opening in June 2016, the Club has gone from strength to strength,” says Mick O’Shea, PGA Professional at Rathsallagh. “Staff numbers have increased by over 50 per cent and there has been steady growth in membership, golf societies, large groups and corporate events. We are also delighted to be hosting the Top Golfer play-offs in the coming days – an event where only the highest standards are accepted.” Club Membership subscription rates are €950, with two new incentive rates starting mid September this year. These are:
1. An Introductory Full Membership rate for the extended period 15th September 2017 to 28 Feb 2019 of €1250.
2. A Second Club Membership rate of €525. The Second Club Membership rate requires a member to be paying at least €950 p.a. as a member of another GUI-affiliated club.
