  • Glenlo Abbey Golf Course

    This lake side golf course, although fair to the beginner, can be a great test to the low handicapper. From the golfing novice to the aficionado, Glenlo Abbey Golf Course offers a unique and challenging experience. With the many lakes, trees, large greens, and the wind whipping up from Lough Corrib, it plays differently every day.

    Course highlights: 

    • A 9 hole parkland golf course beautifully designed Jeff Howes and redesigned by Christy O Connor Jnr with rolling hills that is set on a backdrop of Lough Corrib.
    • Seven of the nine holes boast a water hazard.
    • A stunning signature Par 3 4th hole that measures 200 yards to an island green, sits out on Lough Corrib.
    • Championship blue course, men's white course and ladies' red course. 
  • 21 Bay Driving Range

  • Golf Course Redevelopment

    The course has undergone extensive redevelopment in the last 18 months and there are ongoing works to bring the course back to its former glory.
    • The golf course has been restored to a traditional 9 hole layout. In the past, each hole had two greens. Our new Greenkeeper and Golf Pro have collaborated on which green was the most unique and challenging for each hole and an extensive renovation of these greens was implemented. The old greens have been reintegrated into rough and fairways and also serve to frame the newly restored greens.
    • Tee Box restoration has been complete and now boasts a Championship, Mens and Ladies’ Tee.
      Natural water hazards have been dredged and exposed around the course. 7 of the 9 hole boast a water hazzard. 
      The rough has clearly defined first and secondary cuts. 
    • Areas along the river have been removed of weeds and overgrowth,  offering golfers the opportunity  to gaze upon the beauty of Lough Corrib as they play their round.
    • The driving range has been upgraded to 21 bays. 9 covered bays and 12 outdoor bays.
    • The newly built elevated putting green is complete.
