Mount Juliet Golf Course opened in 1991 with a match featuring golfing legends Christy O'Connor Snr. and Jack Nicklaus. The beautiful and challenging Mount Juliet golf course has established itself as a premier golfing venue for Top Professionals and leisure golfers worldwide. Chosen as the first and only Jack Nicklaus signature golf course in Ireland, the "Golden Bear" was meticulous and pain-staking in his design and overseeing of the construction of his great creation. In preparation for the WGC - American Express Golf Championship that was held here in September 2002 and again in 2004, the Jack Nicklaus design team instigated some extensions and new features to the course, showing Mount Juliet's continued pursuit of golfing excellence.

Set in a world of its own, on lush parkland in the south east of Ireland, Mount Juliet’s Jack Nicklaus course is both captivating and memorable.
