Did you know that Castlecomer Golf Course was designed by Pat Ruddy and is just 15 minutes from Kilkenny City?
Castlecomer Golf Club is situated just 15 minutes from Kilkenny City. The course is set in a 200 year old forest of elevated beauty, with magnificent views of the surrounding countryside, framed by the canopy of the woodland. Castlecomer’s course provides a great test of golf combined with breath taking views of the local terrain. With the development of this course completed in 2003, it is clear to everyone at Castlecomer Golf Club that Pat Ruddy has designed a unique Golf Course.
The new course layout involves no return to the higher ground when the first 9 holes are completed. This has been achieved without altering the integrity of the course, each hole retaining the character and make up as originally conceived by the great course designer Pat Ruddy. We have added a new pathway through the old section of woodland that links hole 7 (formerly 12) with hole 8 (formerly 11). The final result adds a new dimension to the beauty of the course. We are confident that the new changes will be enjoyed by everyone as it has by those that have already had the pleasure of playing it.
At Castlecomer we are looking forward to a great year of golf with a hope that the Summer matches the one we experienced last year. We have a great programme of fixtures planned and apart from the serious business of competition we plan that the social side of golf will have plenty of space also.

Lying in joint third place, he knew would have to shoot a similar score to have any chance of winning the coveted prize.
John played a steady round all through and birdied the 12th. Standing on the last tee John needed a par to ensure victory. In the backbunker in three, he played a brilliant shot to get up and down for par
