Dr. Arthur Spring established his Spring Golf Design company in 1989 and they have created new (or extended existing) Irish golf courses at a rate of almost one a year since then. 

Woodstock Golf Club is an early Spring design – opening in 1993 – and it’s laid out over 155 acres beneath the Slieve Bernagh Mountains on a free-draining site which allows it to remain open most of the year. 

Measuring 6,450 yards from the back tees (with a par of 71), the course routing makes great use of a mature, forested landscape – including lakes, a river and a couple of ancient forts – to form a wonderful 18-hole layout that many consider to be one of the finest parkland courses in the Midwest of Ireland. 

During construction, the architect built a sizeable lake, which, along with connecting streams, provides a formidable water hazard at holes 6, 8 and 11 – a trio of wonderful par three holes. The course at Woodstock ends in some style too, with three testing par fours that follow the short par four 15th.
