Castleknock golf course measuring 6,700 yards from the blue tees was designed by the golf course Architect Jonathan Gaunt, and can be described as modern with large undulating greens. The green complexes allow for numerous and varied pin positions. The 18 hole golf course is located on the grounds of Castleknock Hotel & Country Club making it one of the closest golf hotels in Dublin.
All Par 3 holes are guarded or prefaced by lakes increasing the challenge with large bail-out areas for golfers of all handicaps. Lakes come into play on seven holes. These are fully lined lakes with extensive recirculation systems to ensure that the water is always fresh and inviting to the player but hopefully not to the golf ball.
Marshes come into play on a number of holes. Castleknock golf course is a unique location, modern in design; it will gratify all golfers due to its varied tee positions, its ease of traverse and its very special location.
Castleknock Golf Club was named as one of the top 100 golf courses in Ireland by Golf Digest Magazine in 2009.
