Course Description

Powerscourt Golf Club is located in the east of Ireland in county Wicklow, it is situated on a historic 13th century estate amongst 1,000 acres of mature woodland and pastures, with the Wicklow Mountains and Irish Sea providing an impressive backdrop. The club is home to two excellent championship courses the East Course and the West Course. The East Course is the older and was designed by Peter McEvoy and was designed to strict USPGA specifications, opening in 1996. Although it is a relatively new course, it has a mature feel about it owing to its historic setting. This parkland 18 hole course is a par 72, measuring 6,458 yards from the .

The course has an interesting design and layout that follows the natural contours of the terrain to create a harmonising course, that blends into the historic landscape. There are a number of features of this course not least, a nice selection of interesting and varied holes, a number of water hazards, stunning contoured and undulating tiered greens, copious bunkers all combine to create a challenging round of golf. Natural beauty abounds here with the mature trees. The first nine holes are very impressive but it does not end here, the finishing holes are picturesque. There are a few nice long pars and the par 3's provide a mix of short and long. Do not be deceived this is not an easy course, it offers a real test of golf, it necessitates skill and stamina if you want to score well.

The course is manicured and excellently maintained allowing play all year round. The sand based greens are well shaped and surrounded by deep bunkers, they can be tricky but run true and fast, the sculpted fairways are quite wide, there are two layers of rough, the first that is just about manageable and then the primary which, is punishing, you really want to avoid this if possible.

It is a tranquil and serene spot despite it closeness to Dublin city.

Powerscourt is in simple terms a wonderful experience for all golfers, it certainly has the potential to become one of Ireland's finest parkland courses.

Our Favourite Hole

It comes towards the end of the round but is worth the wait, being one of the most difficult of them all. The 17th hole is a par 5, 604 yards, Firstly you need a long accurate drive as there are trees to the right and rough to the left, that will severely punish any stray shot, it is then fronted by a huge pond that commences about 75 yards short of the green and continues to almost the edge of the putting surface. Do not expect to get on the green in two! A real risk and reward hole.
