Course Details

Course Name: Muskerry Holes: 18 Yardage: 6330 SSS: 71
The first five holes make for a flat and gentle start that does not prepare one for the demands of the par three sixth tee: the river a few yards in front and just below, the valley beyond and then the green clinging to the distant ledge. The holes spiral their way along and around the hillside to the top of the course to the loop of four (10-13), surrounded by the panoramic view of distant mountain ranges and counties. Refelction on the round throws up the startling realisation that no two holes are even remotely the same . It leaves little wonderment that the last amateur to lead the Professionals in the qualifying rounds of the British Open Championships 1939 was a Muskerry Man.

    One of six courses my wife and I played in Ireland last week. Was reasonably easy to get a round booked and a very good price. The weather on the day was quite good, reasonably bright, but with a bit of day I may play on a course in Ireland without a wind, but not this week!
    The first five holes are not completely flat, but quite a nice relaxing start to the round. Hole six is the start of the climb...a short par four over water to a green thirty feet over the valley floor. Then the next few holes play up around the side of what feels like a mountain! The sloping fairways, blind tee shots and tricky greens begin to take
    there toll. As long as you avoid the trees, bushes and water, the rough is not too bad.
    The last four holes are a nice finish. A good fifty foot plus drop on a shortish par three, with bunkers and trees all around the green. Followed by two narrow fairways with the eighteenth being a little wider, but the 17th and 18th finish over water. (I hit the water on both of these holes, but it is not essential! The wife of course avoided it completely)
    A lovely course, relatively undiscovered by the Americans. (So no five balls going around - see Cork golf club!) Very friendly both on the course and in the pro shop. The postcard giving the course layout is a nice touch.
    Be prepared to feel like a mountain goat after a few holes and watch out for the long downhill gravel paths. (My wife slipped on one of these, but was thankfully just lightly bruised) Not the easiest of courses to master, but a wonderful place to play.

    This is a superb course; challenging, yet relaxing. A saucy, surprising, and intriguing course. Jessica
