One of Ireland’s newest golf courses, Bunclody opened in 2009. It is set on the Hall-Dare Estate and your introduction to the course is a stunning tree-lined drive of ancient oak, coasting alongside the River Slaney. Pay attention as the river comes in to play on four holes, most dramatically on the par four 16th, where the river shadows the fairway from tee to green.
Bunclody has superb facilities, including a thatched, circular clubhouse, and two distinctive sets of holes. There are nine holes sliding over an open gentle hillside. The trees and lakes are maturing fast, but there’s no doubt that golfers drawn here will be salivating over the other nine holes set in the woods and beside the river. The closing five holes combine the two and promise a thrilling finish (including that famous lift to the 18th tee).
Designed by Jeff Howes, this is an impressive and smart addition to Ireland’s golf courses.
Favourite Hole: the lone dead tree in the centre of the par four 15th fairway is a striking target from the high tee. A small stream runs diagonally across the front of the green.
What's in the Bag? It is hard to attack greens when you’re offline, so stay straight.
