Shannon Golf Club, established in 1966 was designed by John D Harris as a major championship course of international standard. The course has, over the forty years, matured into one of the best inland courses in Munster and Ireland . A parkland course of 6763 yards with fairways of natural meadow grass planted on either side with Spruce, Evergreens and a wide variety of deciduous trees.
For a number of years it hosted a pro-am which attracted the top ten professionals in Europe together with a contingent of US stars. They have hosted both Irish and European amateur championships and the Men’s Amateur Irish Close Championship most recently in 2011.
The course has a mixture of sand-based and traditional greens, maintained to the highest standard and protected by numerous sand bunkers to offer the final challenge to each hole. Water hazards are also a feature coming into 6th, 7th , 8th , 14th and 17th. The 17th par three is the signature hole which requires a dedicated golf shot over the Shannon Estuary. This course should not be missed.
