    My wife and I have played lots of courses throughout Ireland and have played this beautiful course about 4 or 5 times now, and we both agree that it is one of the best courses in Ireland.
    It is set in the picturesque Vale of Avoca and hidden away in a valley with a river that meanders through the course giving some wonderful holes.
    It's a course that you will remember always. Enjoy it we did and will go again many times.

        It's only an average course mate. You got to get out and play more. Only 15 minutes up the road in aughrim is one of the best courses in Ireland . Macreddin golf club. It makes woodenbridge look like a pitch and putt course.

            How anyone who considers himself to be a golfer and thinks that this course is only a pitch and put, make me see red.
            I suggest you must have had a bad golf day when you played it, and we all know you don't like a course when you are a bad loser.
            Woodenbridge is gorgeous.

    Very recently returned from a wonderful golfing holiday in County Wicklow, and had the extreme pure pleasure of playing "Woodenbridge" 3 times.
    I have played many courses across this beautiful country and in my humble opinion this is by far the best of the lot.
    Absolutely gorgeous golf course and club house.
    Do yourself a favour and go play it.


  • A delightful Golf Course called Woodenbridge

    I had the joy of playing this delight of a Course at the end of May this year while on a Society outing from England.For someone not unaccustomed to playing golf in Ireland,this was a sheer heavan and soothing to the senses. The passing Dublin train added further to the enjoyment.BY the way,the staff were wonderful too.

    Played golf course for first time on tuesday 27th July after hearing so many positive things said about it.Having played it i have to say that it was one of the most scenic courses i have played in a long time.A superp setting with a course in excellent condition and the river running through it all adds up to a very enjoyable few hours getting away from the reality of life.Looking forward to my next visit.

    My wife and I played the course on our last visit to Ireland and both agreed that it was the most enjoyable of our trip. The scenery was spectacular and we had a difficult time keeping our minds on the round at hand. Staying at the hotel capped a memorable visit to Woodenbridge. We are now planning our next trip for May, 2005 and Woodenbridge will definitely be on the iteinerary.

    I apologise for whatever member was less than accomadating.
    If you want to play again just contact me and you can be my guest.
    Woodenbridge is an excellent test for all standards.
    I've played with many single figure golfers who have been too charmed by the peacefull setting.
    They never seem to play as well as they thought they could have on Woodenbridge GC.

    My wife and I played Woodenbridge on a golf holiday in 2002, and it was a highlight of our trip. Though we have played the Old Head, Ballybunion, Lahinch, etc on previous trips, Woodenbridge provided us with a most memorable and truly pleasureable round. We are returning in May, 2004 and will book at least two nights at the Woodenbridge Hotel so we may enjoy a couple of rounds at this beautiful course.

    I have played this course 5 times in my last 7 visits to Ireland and we have been welcomed and looked after every time,and as far as the course, superb but then again what would 6 single figure artisan golfers know !

    Cannot believe that final comment. Must assume all the members were away on that day. Rarely, if ever, have I met more friendly or helpful co-golfers

    We played the course May 29th, although being late (we lost our way again!) the club did everything to accommodate us. At this time of year one quoted that the greens at Woodenbridge were even better than at the European! If you want to play in a nice scenery with excellent quality of fairways and greens then this is the place to be.

    I played this course many years ago when it was 9 holes. I challenge anyone to find a more picturesque setting to play golf. We played at 08-00 on a Sunday morning and when the 9 holes were complete, we made our way into Arklow and found an excellent pint of Guinness at 10-00! Enjoy!

    This course is straight out of God's pocket book of golf courses! Stunning isn't enough, Fabulous condition and setting. No where else will you encounter bunkers with trees in them !! Even more they don't look out of place. This is a very good test of golf although I would question some of the 150 meter posts. If you are planning on visiting the Wicklow area you have to play this course. It will take your breath away

    My friend from America and myself (from England) played here back in September on a tour that incorporated Old Head, Mount Juliet, European Club and Druids Glen, County Louth and the K Club. Against all that competition we rated Woodenbridge highly. On a golfing trip I am planning to the Wicklow area of Ireland for next April, Woodenbridge will be on the itinerary again.

    I am a native of nearby Aughrim living in Cork. On several occasions I have brought friends and neighbours to play Woodenbridge. Many of them have gone back to play the course again. This is a wonderful track.
