Athlone Golf Course

Founded in 1892, Athlone Golf Club is mature and intelligent parkland course, situated on a peninsula jutting into Lough Ree. The greens and turf are very well developed, and there are an excellent variety of holes to keep the game fresh. It is easy to be deceived by the large, flat appearance of the greens, but regular elevation changes make for interesting and challenging shots.

Athlone Golf Club is currently undergoing a three-year plan to introduce 18 sand based greens and tees. The plan calls for work in the off-season, bringing six redeveloped holes into play each summer thus minimising inconvenience to members and visitors alike.
