Make the most of summer and play golf at the beautiful Coollattin Golf Club in Wicklow, Ireland
07 August 2018
Coollattin Golf Club is a beautiful Par 72 course located in Coollattin Park, Shillelagh, County Wicklow.
This course is a joy to play and the club is always welcoming. Play great courses with Open Fairways!
Coollattin Golf Club was affiliated to the Golfing Union of Ireland in 1962. At that time it was a very fine 9 hole course, renowned for its beauty and peaceful tranquility. In 1996 the Club purchased Coollattin House with it's beautiful gardens, and Peter McEvoy was commissioned to add 9 new holes to the course. The completed masterpiece has to be seen to be believed, a true jewel in the crown and as a test of golf it illustrates clearly that length off the tee is not everything.
Of particular note are the superb sand-based greens that were laid on each of the new holes. The parkland nature of Coollattin is further enhanced by a wealth of mature trees including Oaks, Beech and American & Canadian Redwoods.
As Kevin Markham once wrote in Hooked magazine, "the setting is imperious, with the huge trees
watching over your every step of the way, and golf that is serious fun".
