The newest member of Ireland’s 18-hole club, Rathfarnham combines a variety of holes thanks to its 116 year evolution, and a jump from 9 to 14 to 15 to 18 holes. There are dense evergreen corridors and open hillsides, sweet ponds and lazy doglegs. Despite these differences this short course has a highly enjoyable rhythm – one where a driver is more of hindrance than a help. Six new holes opened in 2015 (three new, three upgraded), and water plays a bigger part than ever in the middle of the round.
