County Longford Golf Club was formed in 1894 so it’s one of the oldest in Ireland. The original 9-hole course was provided by the then Earl of Longford, doubling up as pasture land for grazing animals. This layout was revised in 1930 and it stayed that way until 1975, when adjoining land was acquired and a full 18-hole course brought into play.

Set out on top of a hill, the front nine is routed around the perimeter of the property, with the back nine laid out inside these holes. Bunkers don’t really feature prominently so trees and water offer the main hazards to golfers at County Longford. Holes 6 and 12, in particular, play to very fetching water-protected greens.

The 9th, measuring 361 metres, is rated the toughest on the scorecard and it’s a very demanding uphill par four which concludes with a narrow green that’s guarded by sand traps on the left. Short par fours at 2, 12 and 15 are other highlight holes on a course that was remodelled in 2005 to extend its overall length.

This is a fairly standard suburban members parkland course. As there aren't many other golfing options nearby it actually has quite a heathly membership which is a nice thing to see. Played there in March so the course was still quite heavy underfoot. County Longford Golf Course - Photo by reviewerAdd in mostly overcast skies and it won't go down as a memorable round, but a bad days golf... A couple of interesting holes, especially the 13th which has a green wedged fairly tightly between two ponds. Otherwise a little too much filler, with fairly straight holes running back and forth beside each other, to be a course of any note. Interestingly, in one brief period when the sun did come out for a few minutes we were playing the 11th and there sitting on the green was a black cat sunning itself. Can't say I've ever seen that before. Based on how my scorecard was looking up to that point it must have crossed my path earlier in the day.
