I am honoured to have “inherited the mantle” of Captain of Dromoland Golf Club for the forthcoming year and I very much appreciate the trust shown in me. I will do my utmost to carry out the duties of Captain bestowed on me to the highest standards.
I extend the warmest of welcomes to guests and visitors to the Dromoland Golf Club (Parkland Course of 2018). I trust that you will enjoy your visit and that you will return to see us again. Once you have visited or played our wonderful golf facility a return visit is a must.
On your drive into the estate you turn the corner at the 7th green – “the Dromoland Experience” unfolds right there in front of your eyes, there is a temptation to abandon the car and take up the camera to capture the magical lake with the majestic castle in the background and that is only the beginning. After your journey, you can loosen up in preparation for your golf in our Golf Academy. The golf course offers many challenges and to play here is most rewarding. The signature Hole Seven will have you reaching for the camera once more. To complete your visit a treat in the Fig Tree restaurant is well deserved.
As a former Limerick man (now an adopted Clare man) I will sign off by quoting a line from that famous song – I hope it captures your experience, “The beauty that surrounds us I will take it with me wherever I go.”
Lady Captain 2019
This is my 11th year as a member of Dromoland and each year the course has developed and improved. It is not surprising that the Irish Club Professional tournament returns this year or that it was voted Parkland Golf Course of the year at the Irish Golf Awards 2018.
Driving through those magnificent gates you enter a different world. It is all about spectacular views, wildlife, superb food, friendly accommodating people and hopefully some great golf shots to bring you back again and again.
Dromoland has many challenging holes to test golfers at any level. The 8th hole upper tier protected by bunkers with a fall off to the back requires a direct accurate strike for the brave at heart golfer. The 14th is a long uphill fairway with a green that requires skill or luck as every pin position is a challenge.
Along with the challenge is the beauty of the 7th signature hole with a spectacular view of the Castle and the lake. As you approach the 11th tee box the foresight of those who planted the trees knowing a hundred years later the symmetry and pattern would be admired by all.
I could go on at length but suggest you come and enjoy it first-hand. As Lady Captain, I look forward to & would be honoured to welcoming guests and new members.
