County Longford Golf Club
County Longford Golf Club is one of the top golf courses in the midlands of Ireland, where visitors are welcome and guaranteed a warm reception by staff and members alike.
Located just over 1km from Longford Town Centre this 18 hole parkland course allows players to enjoy panoramic views of the Town and surrounding countryside with Cairn Hill providing a beautiful back drop.
The course sits adjacent to the historic Viewmount House and renowned VM Restaurant, and is an ideal setting for a relaxing break away with a partner or small group.
It has become a favoured spot for visiting societies, due mainly to its easy access ( only 90 minutes from Dublin ) and the friendly welcome offered. The real strong point is the quality of the course especially the green complexes which are a match for any greens in the country. Societies interested in booking should ring Pauline in the office at 04333 46310.
The course is playable 12 months of the year, almost unique for an inland course.
The club house, managed by Emer serves excellent food every lunch-time and although hours vary with the seasons, the kitchen will be open if there are golfers on the course. Club, trolley and buggy hire are available on site.
PGA golf professional, Pete Duignan, runs PD Golf store at the club which features all the leading golf brands and accessories. Pete can be contacted on 04333 46707. The shop is open 7 days per week from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The golf course is a fair test for any golfer with some iconic holes especially the par 5 18th hole that has a water feature short of the green making it a nervy three shoter for everyone but the longest of hitters.
With Longford as a base the visitor to the midlands of Ireland can play a different championship golf course every day of the week with very little travelling involved.
