Set majestically on the Atlantic Ocean with mature trees, water hazards and gently rolling landscape, the course has professionally shaped fairways and highly acclaimed putting surfaces, a true and fair test of golf. Set on approximately 300 acres, this PGA championship 18-hole golf course, host of the PGA West of Ireland Open in 1999, has been uniquely designed by Christy O'Connor Jnr to highlight and preserve the ancient sites that lie on its boundaries. On the shoreline behind the 16th tee the remains of a number of small circular stone huts can be spotted. Between the 2nd and 10th greens is the Rathnapours ring port (the fort of little potatoes.) Also integrated into the course are the traditional walls of the Galway region, while the site of an ancient copper and lead mine pre-dating the 16th century, Leadmine Hill, forms the spectacular backdrop to the 13th hole.
