Meath

One of the larger counties in the province of Leinster, County Meath is situated in the Mid East Region of Ireland with Navan as its county town. Once the seat of the High King of Ireland at Tara, County Meath is also famous for the Abbey of Kells, founded by Saint Columba in the 6th century, from where the historical Book of Kells originated.

There are fifteen GUI-affiliated golf clubs in the county (ten of which didn’t exist before 1984) and the oldest of these is County Meath, founded in 1898. Another of the long-established clubs, Headfort, offers golfers two fine 18-hole layouts and its New course – in operation since 2001 – is one of the best parkland tracks in Ireland.

Another new course, Killeen Castle, has been making something of a name for itself in recent years. The course was chosen for the Ladies Irish Open in 2010 and 2011 before it then hosted the biennial Solheim Cup series of matches between Europe and USA with the home team winning a memorable contest by a margin of 15 points to 13.
