Located in the shadow of Croagh Patrick, Ireland’s holy mountain – where St Patrick is reputed to have driven all the serpents out of the country – Westport boasts fantastic views of the surrounding area from its elevated position above the shore of Clew Bay.

Laid out on over two hundred and fifty acres of rolling parkland that were once part of the Lord Sligo of Westport House estate, Fred W. Hawtree redesigned the current course in 1973. He said of Westport, “the nature of the terrain, part inland and part seaside, the panorama which it commands and its considerable golfing virtues, make it uniquely attractive and memorable”.

The course has held many Irish championships, including the Close Amateur in 1977, 1985, 1997 and 2005. The Irish Seniors was also hosted by Westport in 1988 and 2000.

Measuring just twenty yards short of seven thousand in total length, Westport is a demanding track that will test even the longest of hitters off the tee There are five par five holes on the scorecard which has a Standard Scratch Score of 74, one more than the par for the course.

The holes immediately beside the coastline are the real feature at Westport and they run from “Roman Island,” the 208-yard par three 12th to the 515-yard par 5 15th, called “The Reek” where the tee shot must carry 150 yards past an inlet to the left of the fairway.

Throughout more than 100 years of its existence, Westport Golf Club has had a well-deserved reputation for offering wonderful hospitality and friendliness towards visiting golfers so you are guaranteed a very warm Mayo welcome here.
