Dunmore East Golf Club overlooks the village of Dunmore East, with panoramic views of the village, the bay, the Hook Peninsula, Waterford Harbour estuary, the Saltee Islands and the Irish Sea. This seaside parkland course offers idyllic surroundings, fresh clean sea air, combined with stimulating and challenging golf.
This 18 hole, 6070 meters par 72 course set out on over 180 acres has, from the outset, been receiving wonderful reviews from both golf writers and players alike.
To quote Dermot Gilleece of The Irish Times
“A hidden gem……a very fine course with a truly spectacular finish “.
Nine holes are set along the cliff top over looking the beautiful coast and a further nine set amongst trees and stunning shrubbery with expansive views over the country side towards the Commeragh mountains. The course provides a challenging combination of water hazards and natural features such as the magnificent par 3 # 14 which shoots down a steep valley with gorse covered sides and the stunning par 3 #16 which involves driving the ball over a cliff to a green on the opposite side, two of many challenging holes on a great course. Long par 3’s and tricky to manage par 4’s provide a challenge while reachable par 5’s may allow you to reclaim a shot or two. Open all year round the course is renowned for its winter playability.
Nowhere in Ireland will you be more welcomed than in the clubhouse bar with its breathtaking views and very friendly locals.
