… to our club
This is truly a club with a view! Glengarriff’s nine holes are in one of the loveliest settings in Ireland, with scenic views abounding – the one from the fifth tee is exceptionally beautiful.
The grassy lane between the second and third holes is part of the historic ancient road between Adrigole and Bantry which also comes up by the trees which run across the course near the eight and ninth holes.
The Clubhouse was opened in 1989 by the Club’s Honorary President, Dr Maureen O’Hara-Blair, the famous film star. Visitors are always welcome, and generally may play all day.
Welcome from the 2017 Captains
Your 2017 Captains Mike Corbett and Katie Hourihan would like to welcome you all to Glengarriff Golf Club. Together we are committed to delivering an action packed golfing year for all our members and guests and providing a warm welcome to all our visitors.
Founded in 1934 Glengarriff Golf course is surrounded on 3 sides by one of the few remaining ancient Oak forests of Ireland.
The course is set amid mountain scenery of breathtaking beauty, overlooking the world renowned Garnish Island and Bantry Bay. Nine holes, with a par thirty three, Glengarriff provides a full range of shotmaking, from the demands of the par fours to the precision required for the challenging par 3s.
The name comes from “An Gleann Garbh” – the rugged glen – which is derived from the rugged beauty of the mountains and wooded valleys surrounding the village. Magnificent views of the Caha Mountains and the bulk of Sugarloaf can be seen from the numerous viewpoints along the roads which hug the coastline or wind along the steep sided valleys.
