Events At Courtown
Although its boundaries come within 100 metres of the sea, Courtown is actually a parkland course.
It is surrounded on three sides by forestry and the course boasts hundreds of mature trees. In fact every fairway is lined to reward the accurate golfer and punish the wayward. The course is a matured par 71 almost 6000 metres in length and provides great variety.
The four par 3s are a feature, particularly the 18th where a water hazard and the threatening out of bounds on the left have to be negotiated. For the big hitters there are three par 5s, including the new dog-leg 9th hole, an imposing end to the front nine.
The remaining par 4s include the 4th, the signature hole, revered nationally and internationally. With its panoramic views of the south Irish Sea and the beautiful North Wexford coast it provides a delightful distraction to many a bad round.
