(4/5 based on a few reviews on the web)
Tuam Golf Club, is a parkland course located in Tuam, County Galway. Founded in 1904, it has been an affiliated member of the Golfing Union of Ireland since 1940.HistoryThe origins of golf in Tuam go back to the early 1900s when two local businessmen holidayed in the town of Harrogate in England. There they became acquainted with the game, purchased clubs and balls and brought them back to Tuam. Initially located in the townland of Cloonascragh (on land owned by one of the two businessmen), Tuam Golf Club opened in 1904 with 60 members. In 1937 it relocated to the lands of the Kilgarriff family at Mayfield.In 1948 Christy O'Connor Snr came to the club as a professional, and gave local golf lessons. In 1951 he was encouraged by friends in Galway and Tuam to play in the British Open at Royal Portrush Golf Club. He finished as leading Irishman in the championship and later that year was invited to take up the position as professional at Bundoran Golf Club.In 1975 the club moved to its current location at Barnacurragh, with the course designed by Eddie Hackett.In 1991 a new clubhouse was constructed, with bar, restaurant, changing rooms and a pro-shop. Improvement works continued over the years with Christy O'Connor Jnr advising the club. Other development work undertaken between 2007 and 2009 was under the guidance of golf architect Ken Kearney.Tuam Golf Club granted full membership to lady members in 1992 and in 2004 allowed Category 1 lady members compete for the Gents President's Prize.
