Balbriggan Golf Club was formed in 1945 (on the day that the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima) and golfers played here on a 9-hole layout until sufficient land became available to expand to an 18-hole course some forty years later.

More adjacent fields were purchased, allowing the club to develop the course further and, in 1999, Pat Ruddy redesigned a couple of holes. Not content with this, the club called in Eddie Connaughton a decade later to upgrade the layout and he installed several water hazards and reconstructed greens and tees to USGA specification.

Balbriggan’s tree-lined fairways – many of them doglegged – are laid out on pleasantly undulating terrain and the run from the 13th to the last is very good with elevated tee positions and raised greens offering great variety over the closing holes.
