The medal course is a par 72 golfing test measuring 6,600 yards (6000m).
Athlone GC is a lakeside course, laid out on the western shore of Lough Ree and offers superb views of the lake from the clubhouse and around the course.

Your round begins with a tricky trio of holes which offer scoring opportunities for the accurate and a tough start for those who are not. Water comes in to play for the next few holes, including the par 5-3-5 sequence known as Athlone’s Amen Corner. The front 9 ends with a par 5 which is reachable in two for the bigger hitters.

The par 3-4-5 sequence at the start of the back-9 brings you back to the clubhouse and the tee box for the signature 13th hole. There follows two of the best short par 4 holes you will find anywhere before you cross the road for the final stretch. These 3 holes are the finishing holes of a championship course. With the Index 1 and Index 5 sandwiched by a short par-3 which should be a straightforward were it not for its treacherous green.
