3 reviews of Westport Golf Club
A wonderful course set in panoramic mountains and undulating countryside.
Plays like a parkland first 9 and then more linksy the back 9.
Total class throuhgout with fascinating par 3's and wonderful twists and turns to keep the imagination high!
Highly recommended for handicaps 22 and below.
A few of us joined Westport this year because we always enjoy visiting the town and the course is a pleasure to play. The first 6 are slightly less interesting as mentioned in other reviews but (with the possible exception of the 1st) they are all still very good golf holes. In the last year, new water hazards have been introduced on the 7th, 8th, 10th and 18th with two great new greens also built for the 8th and 18th and a reshaped green on the 7th. On the back nine, the stretch from the 12th through the 15th, where Clew Bay comes in to sight and then in to play, is truly wonderful. Croagh Patrick all the while keeps a close watch. For a short par 4, the 17th has a couple of tricks up its sleeves and with the new adjustments, the last hole is a frightening prospect to finish with. Needless to say, the staff and service in the clubhouse are very welcoming and they serve up good quality pub grub along side the restaurant menu. I took a number of visitors here in 2002 and each and every one had only positive things to say about the whole experience. If you're rapidly becoming bored with all the American style layouts cropping up around Ireland, then I can assure you that Westport is among the two or three best traditional inland courses in the country
