The County Kildare Golf Club was established in 1896 and it remained in this guise for exactly 100 years before, in its centenary year, it changed its name to Naas Golf Club.

The first course that members played on was a 9-hole affair at Halverstown. The club moved a further three times before finally settling at Kerdiffstown in 1941. During the following years the course was extended to a full 18-hole layout and the clubhouse completely renovated.

Located between Johnstown and Sallins in County Kildare, Naas Golf Club is a traditional parkland course laid out on rolling terrain with tree-lined fairways. Jeff Howes Golf Design were commissioned in 2002 to redesign half the greens, add several fairway bunkers, build some new tees and install a lake on the older back nine – quite a golfing makeover for a newly named, but long established club!

There are five par threes on the course but the real feature short hole is the 178-yard 17th where the new lake is situated all the way down the right, trees are to the left and the green is protected by two large bunkers on the left – a cracking hole where a three on the card is well earned.

I play this course on a regular basis and it just seems to get better and better. The green keeping staff have done a fantastic job as the greens are as smooth as silk, fairways mown like carpets. It is not a particularly long course but the greens really do make it a wonderful test for all levels of golfers. Friendly staff in the Pro Shop and Club house are always very welcoming. Very good value to play and should really be higher up in the Irish rankings than its current position of #93.
