Welcome to Limerick Golf Club
Limerick Golf Club is located at Ballyclough, on the southern outskirts of Limerick City. It is one of the oldest golf clubs in Ireland, founded in 1891 by Alexander Shaw in the same year as the Golfing Union of Ireland. The course and clubhouse are located on the original grounds of Roxboro Castle and boasts an 18 hole, mature, parkland layout. The design of the course evolved over a number of years and had contributions from course designers such as Lionel Hewson, John D. Harris and Dr. Alister MacKenzie.
The JP McManus Invitational Pro-Am, the biggest pro-am event of its kind in Europe, had its home at Limerick Golf Club from 1990, with the last staging on this course in July 2000. The field included some of the biggest players in the game, such as Tiger Woods and Mark O’Meara, and raised over €19,000,000 for local charities.
A new clubhouse was constructed in 2007 and was officially opened by the Open Champion, Pádraig Harrington, in September of that year. Although not long by modern standards and measuring 6001 meters from the back markers the 18 holes are beautifully presented and well maintained. The course offers a challenge to all handicap golfers and is currently home to the Munster Mid-Amateur Championship. Limerick Golf Club is a vibrant members club where Visitors and Societies are always welcome.
