Wicklow Golf Club History

Wicklow Golf Club was formed in 1904, it began as a nine hole course, and continued as a nine hole until 1994, when it was extended to an 18 hole course. The new Club house was built in 2002 to bring the club and course right up to date with the growing standards around the country.

Wicklow Golf Club broke ranks with the rest of the county Clubs by having Ladys as full members from the very beginning. Ladies also attended and voted at the meeting of the 14th October 1904, at which Wicklow Golf Club was formally constituted In 1906 the Dublin, Wicklow, and Wexford Railway Company sponsored the first Open Mixed Foursomes Competition to be run by the Club.

Three Films have been shot on and around the Wicklow Golf Course, namely John Boorman’s “Excalibur”, Pierce Brosnan’s “Taffin”, and more recently “Reign of Fire” which starred Mathew Mc Coughnaty. Today the Course is among the most scenic in the country, and boasts great views along the east coast. With the rugged cliffs and rolling fairways.

    Enjoyable golf course stunning views. Two of the Par 3s are really really good (Open quality). Greens run so smoooth. Also pin position were where they should be (not in the middle of a slope or on the front edge ). Really nice clubhouse and bar.

    Beautiful views of the Irish Sea from every hole. Well manicured and friendly staff. Just an all around fun course. Their local pro was very helpful and the views from the clubhouse were breathtaking.

    Very nice golf course and some amazing views but I wouldn't play it again unless I had a golf buggy. It's incredibly 'hilly' and by the end of 18 holes walking it we were shattered.
