Golfing

The Emerald Isle, a golfing treasure chest containing some of the finest gems in the world, has risen to prominence in resent years as a favoured golf destination. In fact, the golf choices on this Island rival any country in the world. Many of our golf courses organise open competitions which allows members of other clubs to compete with local members. The open competition provides great value for money and typically reduced green fee's are availible, plus the incentive of playing for prizes. Here are but a few of the fantastic golf courses in Co. Laois:
