Moate Golf Club
Moate Golf Club is an 18-Hole, Parkland Course, just off the M6 Motorway, less than an hour from the M50 (Dublin) and a similar distance from Galway. We are so well positioned that we even have distance members who play here as often as the locals.
We are renowned for being one of the friendliest clubs in the midland region. It helps that we have a great history to draw on having been founded in 1900 but members and visitors alike see that we haven’t stood still over the years.
The beauty of Moate Golf Club is that it provides a challenge for all level of golfers from beginners to the lowest handicappers. It’s rare that players come in exhausted or whipped by the course but few are able to boast about it being a soft touch either. The course is filled with character and features such as ‘the bullring’ on the 6th, our marvelously restored limekiln on the 9th and the historic battle trenches on the left and right of the 11th fairway. The extended 8th hole with its new green is proving very popular and is the focal point of our own little Amen Corner after the climb to ‘Rocky’s Rest’ by the 2 tiered 7th green and just before the redesigned dogleg 9th.
The course is filled with gently undulating forgiving fairways and excellently manicured greens that blend naturally into their surroundings with well-maintained approaches. Bunkers are not designed to punish good shots and are only found where you might expect them to be.
We have Open Stableford Competitions every Thursday (April to October) and on most Bank Holiday Mondays. There are several other open competitions during the season and visitors are always welcome. Green fees and membership options for all categories are competitively priced with all being fully visible on our website. Societies are welcome and most return year on year but contact us to make a booking as early as possible in the year as the club has a very active Competition schedule.
As an added bonus Pauric, Tony and their friendly staff provide top quality fare in the upstairs restaurant. Be sure to call in before and after your golf game, you won’t be disappointed and you certainly won’t leave hungry!
Moate Golf Club putting the heart into Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands.
