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.

Sun Aug 30th. Davy Buggy held his nerve over the final 9 holes to emerge victorious in Michael Curry’s Captain’s Prize played over 36 holes in well appointed Castlecomer on Sunday last.. With the clubhouse lead standing at 137 Davy needed to score big on the back 9. This he achieved in style when he birdied 11 and 13 to cover the nine in one under par and finish with a total of 134. Martin Brennan had earlier shot a 64 and with an overall score of 137 was in with a chance of victory until Davy’s last 9 heroics. Gerry Mealy finished third with a score of 138. Michael Buggy had a great gross score of 2 under par (142) over the 36 holes.
