St. Anneâ€™s Golf Club is located on the beautiful Bull Island, a world famous nature reserve, only 8km from Dublin City Centre, affectionately known as â€œDublinâ€™s Fair Cityâ€.
Founded in 1921,St. Anne's started as a 9 hole course back in 1921 and about 15 years ago achieved 18 hole links course status. In the past few years, the course itself has undergone significant development, which included the building of five new greens and eight new tee complexes. The sacred turf of the old Croke Park pitch (Irelands infamous GAA grounds) was used to great effect in developing, strengthening and giving real definition to the back nine in St. Anneâ€™s.
