Golf in South Tipperary
There are a number of fantastic golf courses in South Tipperary and West Waterford in the environs of the beautiful Knockmealdown Mountain range. If Golf is your passion this is a wonderful area to locate as you will have an immense choice of excellent courses.
Cahir Park Golf Club – Beautiful mature 18 hole parkland course with a selection of excellent water and woodland features. The course is located on the left hand side a half mile outside Cahir on the Clogheen road.
Lismore Golf Course – Very pretty 9 Hole course. Driving over the Knockmealdowns from Clogheen turn right at the T junction before Lismore, then take an immediate right turn. The golf course is a short distance out this road on the right hand side.
Mitchelstown Golf Club – Really nice mature course located just outside Mitchelstown on left hand side on the Limerick road. Go through the roundabout past the Aldi Warehouse and you’ll find the course on your left.
Clonmel Golf Club – The only golf club actually in the Knockmealdown Mountains. This is a challenging course as it is hillier than any of the others on the list here. It is located three miles outside Clonmel past Hillview Tennis Club (toward Dungarvan at roundabout at Gashouse Bridge).
Slievenamon Golf Club – Lovely 18 hole course located on the Fethard road out of Clonmel at Lisronagh.
Ballykisteen Hotel and Golf Resort – A really nice, highly regarded, flat course located just outside Tipperary town. It is on the left just past Limerick Junction train station.
Dundrum House Hotel Golf and Leisure Resort – One of Tipperary’s most famous golf clubs, located just before Dundrum village on the left hand side. Easiest reached by taking the motorway to Cashel, taking the Dundrum exit and following the signs toward Dundrum.
Thurles Golf Club – Lovely flat course just outside Thurles. Take the first Thurles exit from the M8 motorway and you’ll find the course on your right hand side (the course actually has parts on both sides of the road).
Dungarvan Golf Club – Located between Cruachán Hill and Dungarvan Harbour in Abbeyside. Wonderful day trip from the Tipperary side of the Knockmealdown Mountains.
Gold Coast Golf Course – Outside Dungarvan at the Gold coast. Parkland course located along the coastline with wonderful sea views and holes playing across inlets.
