About Us

Founded in 1998 the club is affiliated to both the GUI and the ILGU

Ballinlough Castle Golf Club was founded in 1998 and affiliated to theGolfing Union of Ireland in April of 1999.

We are also affiliated to the Irish Ladies Golfing Union.
Ballinlough was formed to be a members controlled
equal status club, with the sole intention of getting
the best course we could, out of the land at our disposal.

Course Design by,

Pat Ruddy

to whom the club is indebted for his help and encouragement

Pat, who among many other projects has to his credit,
TheEuropean Club  (ranked at number 5 in Ireland and 43 in the world),
And the magnificent
Druids Glen, (voted the number 1 visitor course in Europe),
has described the site as being "Amazingly beautiful"
he goes on to say,
" The site is that good that there are at least eight natural holes, just waiting to be played. These holes will entail minimal construction work.
We are building a course here in Ballinlough, to the best modern specifications which will be comparable to any parkland stretch in the country, and will be ultimately suitable for Tournament Play, should that become a requirement".
In February 2013 the club added the game of footgolf to the course having read an interesting article on the internet, in laying out 5 holes for members only, This was extended to 9 holes In August 2013. We opened these to the public in 2014 We are happy to extend if this to 18 holes if the game becomes as popular as we think it will be, due to the fact that it is a real family orintated game.
