Course Details &
An 18 hole course set on Kildare parkland,
Newbridge Golf Club opened in 1995. Fully affiliated to the GUI
in 1997, there are now 300 members. The course and its
facilities improve year on year, with 15 USGA sand greens now in
place, and the remaining three due to be upgraded end of 2010.
The holes around the turn are particularly challenging, with
water features giving the golfer extra to watch out for.
Over 40,000 trees of many varieties have been planted,
contributing to the peaceful and relaxed atmosphere. The
clubhouse provides all the usual facilities, from food and drink
and a warm fire to showers and a terrace overlooking the course.
The first 9 holes are dominated by the
brooding presence of the Hill of Allen, home of the legendary
Fionn MacCumhaill. The third, sixth skirt the edge of the Bog of
Allen, where you can smell the blooming heather and hear cuckoo
and curlews cry. The course is noted for its wildlife, with
herons, moorhens, kingfisher and wild ducks, hence the club's
logo. There is an active grey partridge and pheasant breeding
programme underway. The course has also benefited from a
prodigious planting of trees with Japanese larch, cedars of
Lebanon and Norwegian Maple featuring along with the more common
place oak and copper beech to name a few.
