DG IRELAND TOP150 – 2024

GLASSON GOLF CLUB

Editor, Kevin Markham

Glasson’s driveway glides above the course’s best holes as they drift down to the edge of Killenure Bay… and one of the most stunning par threes in Ireland. To reach the tee you must cross the lake’s edge via a wooden walkway… before playing a tee shot over the lake itself. It is all carry. The hotel at the end of the
driveway offers a mighty fine golfing package, too. Indeed, it is designed very much with golfers in mind. The expansive golf course sits between Lough Ree and Killenure Bay, and water is always in view. It was designed by Christy O’Connor Jr, and opened in 1993, but the resort and the closing five holes
(to the left of the driveway) underwent major redevelopment by David Jones, in 2021. Glasson’s great strengths come from its swaying landscape and variety of holes, as evidenced by the strong par threes and par fives. Expect some big and thrilling shots, especially on the closing six holes.

Favourite Hole
The famous par three 15th is a show-stopper.
It is all carry across Killenure Bay.
What’s in the Bag?
Finding putting surfaces that can be out of
view is key.
