Gold Coast Golf Club is a championship parkland course. There are unrivaled views of Dungarvan Bay, the Irish Sea and Helvick Head. Mature tree-lined fairways laid out in 1939 are cleverly mingled with the long and challenging newer holes. Maurice Fives, the course architect, cleverly mingled the old and new until now the Gold Coast Golf Course boasts a 6788 yards, par 72 layout that will certainly test the most seasoned golfers. For the ladies the 5,531 yard course is equally demanding and rewarding.
The 256 yards first gets a most enjoyable round off to a challenging start, for this is one of the original holes and is lined on both sides of the fairway by trees. The 8th is a shorter version of the spectacular 16th at Cypress Point. The 15th par four of 397 yards, is probably the signature hole with tee shots needing to carry an inlet of the Bay to reach the haven of the fairway and from there it is a testing medium to long iron to reach a well protected green. The finish at the Gold Coast is, in fact, one of the most testing anywhere. The 16th is a par five of 520 yards, the 17th a cracking four of 473 yards and the 18th a monster 561 yards.
The Club welcomes Visitors and group from all across the world. Hotel facilities and an indoor leisure centre are available on site next to the course as well making it easy access for golfers to avail of early tee times. Buggies, trollies and clubs are available for hire from the Pro Shop.
