• Overview

    We will play six rounds on five fine courses during our Ireland Golf Week with a combination of links and parkland courses.  Details of the courses to be played are illustrated in the tour itinerary.  Our hotel for the week is the 4 star Talbot Hotel in Wexford, which is ideally located in the heart of the town.  The Talbot hotel is one of the finest hotels in County Wexford and boasts a vibrant bar, fully equipped leisure centre and a swimming pool. We have included dinner at the hotel each evening, as the quality is very good and the cost likewise, but we will of course then head out and enjoy the Irish craic thereafter.

    Please note that if you are unable to attend for the full week, but would like to attend for a shorter duration, please let us know your individual requirements and we can adjust your booking and cost accordingly.

    St Helen’s Bay Golf Club

    It was the Ryder Cup hero Philip Walton who took the challenge of creating the wonderful mix of parkland and links golf that is the St. Helen’s Bay Golf Club. Being located in the south east corner of the Country, the Club is fondly known as ‘Ireland’s sunniest golf course.’ The 17th and 18th holes enjoy a dazzling panorama of beach and sparkling sea which accompany the fairways all the way home. The early holes play uphill where the gentle rising landscape, afford lovely panoramic views of the Wexford coast and countryside. Other features of the course include water hazards on the 11th and 12th and restored ‘famine’ walls at the 1st, 9th and 10th. In total, the course is 5,991 metres, with a Par 72 with a standard scratch of 72 off the back tees. The course boasts nine water features, bunkers and 5,000 trees, requiring full concentration to avoid succumbing to the obstacles. A fine round of golf to start our golf week in south east Ireland.

    Monday 12th September:

    – Breakfast

    – 18 holes Rosslare Golf Club

    – Dinner at the hotel

    Rosslare Golf Club

    Our second round is played at arguably the leading course in the area, Rosslare Golf Club, where we will play a second round later in the week. Although Ireland boasts some of the most famous links courses in the world, the links at Rosslare is very much one of those hidden gems amongst the plethora of Irish links golf courses. The course is situated on a narrow peninsula with the Irish Sea on one side and the huge expanse of Wexford harbour on the other. The dog-leg par 4 1st begins a round that has many golfing highlights, the par 5 7th, the famous ‘Barber’s Pole’ par 4 11th, the short par 4 13th and the devilish par 4 16th eventually leading to the long narrow 18th are just some of the highlights.

    Tuesday 13th September:

    – Breakfast

    – 18 holes Enniscorthy Golf Club

    – Dinner at the hotel

    Enniscorthy Golf Club

    Enniscorthy Golf Club is a beautiful tree lined 18 hole parkland golf course that has been proudly catering for the golfing interests of the people of Enniscorthy town and beyond for over a century. When we visit the Club we will be bowled over by the friendliness and helpful nature of the staff and members. The Club, whilst modern in infrastructure and outlook, is set in a wonderful rural setting, with good wholesome country values not found in clubs of this calibre today.

    Wednesday 14th September:

    – Breakfast

    – 18 holes Waterford Castle Golf Club

    – Dinner at the hotel

    Waterford Castle Golf Club

    We head west today for what will be a wonderful golfing experience. The unique Waterford Castle Golf Club is Ireland’s only true island golf course, being completely detached from the mainland. Designed by Des Smyth, former Ryder Cup player, and opened in 1992, this 18-hole, par 72 championship golf course, complete with luxurious clubhouse, leads us through mature woodland and parkland. The course itself runs to 6,814 yards, off the medal tees, and covers an area of over 200 acres. The round at Waterford Castle should be one of the great highlights of the week.

    Thursday 15th September:

    – Breakfast

    – 18 holes Wexford Golf Club

    – Dinner at the hotel

    Wexford Golf Club

    Wexford Golf Club is a beautiful 18 hole parkland course situated in the heart of Wexford town. The course which was upgraded in 2006 is a 71 par course measuring 5950 metres from the championship tees and provides a challenge for players of all standards. The course and Clubhouse offer magnificent town and sea views. The course is committed to ensuring that visitors and members enjoy the facilities on offer and the Club is renowned for its relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

    Friday 16th September:

    – Breakfast

    – 18 holes Rosslare Golf Club

    – Dinner at the hotel

    Rosslare Golf Club

    We return to Rosslare for our second round on the course. Not only is the course a super challenge, but it has a very distinct setting too. Opened in 1905, generations of visitors have witnessed the sea in all its moods. From the golf course, looking northwards, we can observe the seas building up on the Dogger Bank at the entrance to Wexford Harbour. In foul weather, which hopefully we won’t experience, in an easterly direction one can see the waves breaking on the huge sandbank known as The Long Bank, and a little south of it, Holden’s Bed. Further south stands the Tuskar Lighthouse, built in 1815 to warn the unwary mariner of the perils of this treacherous coastline. Today the regular comings and goings of the huge car ferries and container ships at Rosslare Harbour present an interesting source of diversion. The pier at Rosslare Harbour is also clearly visible. So although we must of course concentrate on our game, the surroundings for both of our rounds at Rosslare are quite unique.

    Saturday 17th September:

    – Breakfast

    – Check out of the hotel
