Castleknock Golf course is set in a truly serene oasis and is designed to reflect the grandeur of its location. A location sought out by the elite of Dublin during the 19th century who made the area the location for their residences, gardens and pleasure grounds. Castleknock Golf Course is on lands that were part of the Somerton Estate originally owned by Sir George Brooke.
The course measuring 6,700 sq. yards from the blue tees was designed by the golf course Architect, Jonathan Gaunt, and can be described as modern with large undulating greens. The green complexes allow for numerous and varied pin positions.
All par 3 holes are guarded or prefaced by lakes increasing the challenge with large bale-out areas for golfers of all handicaps. Lakes come into play on seven holes. These are fully lined lakes with extensive recirculation systems to ensure that the water is always fresh and inviting to the player but hopefully not to the golf ball. Marshes come into play on a number of holes. Castleknock golf course is a unique location, modern in design; it will gratify all golfers due to its varied tee positions, its ease of traverse and its very special location. A marriage of old-world elegance and modern design.
The course is playable all year round with no mats or temporary greens. With superb drainage, immaculate fairways and greens that are described as “the best in Ireland” by Peter Lawrie, Winner of the 2008 Spanish Open.
In September 2006 the club house was opened, with a fully stocked Pro Shop, coffee shop and most comfortable changing rooms at ground floor level, together with a Bar and Restaurant located at first floor level with panoramic views of the Wicklow Mountains and Liffey Valley.
