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 shot making, from the demands of the par fours to the precision required for the challenging par 3s.
The name Glengarriff 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 mountain can be seen from the numerous viewpoints along the roads which hug the coastline or wind along the steep sided valleys.
