Mount Wolseley was the ancestral home of Frederick York Wolseley (1837-1899) who gave his name to the famous Wolseley cars which commenced production in 1895 in Birmingham. The Wolseley cars ceased production in 1975. He also invented the worlds first mechanical sheep shears. Mount Wolseley remained in ownership of the Wolseley Family until 1925 when it was sold to the Patrician Brothers, to become the world-wide Headqauters of the Order which now serves more than thirty counties around the world. Mount Wolseley is a course of visual splendor which is lodated on the edge of Tullow Town. A visit will be a treat to remember where you can view the ancestral home of the famous Wolseley family and be pampered by the friendly and efficient staff.

    Beautiful course, fantastic holes. The first four holes I'd say would be the hardest first four of any course that I have ever played. I dont think there was one unprotected green. Tough test if you are less than 18 handicap. Water just seems to attract golf balls. If you are not careful you can even end up in the water while you are putting. Some of the fairways unfairly slope towards the water. Very long off the white tees, I dont think there was a par 3 less than 190 yards. Well worth a visit. PS hotel was great too!!!

    I have played this course on many occasions. It is challenging with some very interesting holes. The Clubhouse is something special and worthy of a visit on its own. The Club Professional is the most pleasant and welcoming person I've ever met. This is a course that must be destined to hold a European Event before to long. I look forward to my next visit.

    I had the pleasure of playing this fabulous course on two occasions and I would say that you will go a long way to find an equal to it.In fact I won my society,s captains prize there in 1998.People talk about Druids Glen and The K Club but they are far behind in my opinion.
