Stackstown Golf Club is situated in Dublin in the east of Ireland, the club was established in 1976, and started life as a nine hole course.
Initially it was founded as a Golf Club for Ireland’s national police force (An Garda Síochána), but today has grown into one of the most respected and attractive venues to play golf in the Dublin area. It is set amongst the Dublin mountains in 140 acres, with its unique wildlife and stunning panoramic views of Dublin Bay and the City. This 18 hole parkland course is a par 71 and measures 6,015 yards from the white tees.
It has a nice layout and design and enjoys many traditional features, such as
- strategically placed bunkers,
- mature trees and
- water hazards, in the form of streams.
- The course is very hilly, in fact you are going uphill for at least the first nine holes,
- it certainly embraces the hills with very few level lies.
There are some nice enjoyable par 4’s and a few good par 5’s but, the 5 par 3’s are all challenging in different ways. The opening hole here is possibly one of the most challenging holes in golf. Every hole here enjoys panoramic views of Dublin City. It is an interesting and fun course to play whilst also offering a number of challenges to all caliber of golfer. Overall it is an enjoyable but considerably tough physical round of golf.The course is well kept and the greens are in great condition, they are fast and run true. Mature woodland borders every hole and the fairways are quite generous.
