Established in 1939, the 9-hole course at Gold Coast Golf Club was expanded to a full 18-hole layout by Maurice Fives in the mid-1990s so the modern day course is a mix of mature tree-lined fairways and more open, newer holes.

The course is set out close to Dungarvan Bay and Helvick Head, with the Irish Sea in sight from every hole. The first visit to the water’s edge at holes 6 to 8 is the most thrilling sequence on the front nine and the 175-metre 8th has been compared with the famous 16th at Cypress Point.

After the turn, the routing returns to the coast again at the 361-metre 15th, where a demanding tee shot carry over the bay will separate the men/ladies from the boys/girls. It’s the first shot of a very fine finishing stretch of par fours and fives that plays to stroke index 5, 9, 1 and 7.

Gold Coast, West Waterford and Dungarvan are member of the “Dungarvan Golf Triangle,” where golfers can tee it up at all three parkland courses for the price of two green fees. It’s an excellent local golfing collaboration that’s well worth supporting if you’re in the area and looking for a game.

The best value round I have ever played. €22 is astonishingly good value. The course is in excellent condition - lush, true, fast-running greens and simply wonderful setting. Gold Coast Golf Course - Photo by reviewer I had thought this would be an average course with some good views and a couple of interesting coastal holes. How wrong I was. Barely a weak hole in the 18. Some good variety with established trees and extensive coastal frontage. On the day the experience was aided by sunshine and a 2-club breeze. Decent length holes with a few idiosyncrasies. Friendly members too. Wonderful all round.

This course was a real surprise - very much a parkland course but on the edge of the sea, with wonderful views across Dungarvan Bay. It has everything - tight drives, lush fairways, good bunkers and excellent greens that were fast and true to putt on - some of the best I have experienced. Highlights were the par 3 - 8th and par 4 - 15th, where the drive is over a rocky cove to reach the green and fairway.
