Mount Wolseley Golf Course
Situated 12 km east of Carlow Town, Mount Wolseley is set in opulent surroundings and boasts an 18-hole championship golf course. According to Christy O’Connor Junior, course designer, “Rarely after a first look around a potential site for a golf course had I been so impressed as at Mount Wolseley. What we have here is a fair but testing 18 holes of championship golf, none of which will disappoint even the most discerning player”. This par 72 course provides a challenge to every ability as each hole presents demanding approach shots, with wide landing areas being the only concession. With its broad fairways, unforgiving rough and picturesque water hazards, Mount Wolseley has justifiably played host to a number of national and international golf competitions and was selected as the host venue for the prestigious European Challenge Tour for three consecutive years between 2015 and 2017.
