Barrettstown Rd, Newbridge, Kildare
Newbridge Golf Club is an 18 hole parkland course just 30 minutes south of Dublin. Affiliated to the GUI in 1997, we now have over 400 members. The course boasts USGA spec. greens and tees. The holes around the turn are particularly challenging, with water features giving the golfer extra to watch out for.
The clubhouse has two large rooms for eating, drinking and relaxing, and there’s a panoramic view of the course from the bar. Good food is always available. The clubhouse is busy all year around with events like charity classics, family gatherings and corporate occasions. Over 40,000 trees have been planted here. They add to the peaceful and relaxed atmosphere while giving the golfer extra challenges. Exotic leaves of the Japanese larch, Giant Redwood and Gingko Biloba can be seen alongside native oak, ash and elm.
Wildlife thrives here too with the lakes and streams. Herons, swans, moorhens, kingfisher and wild ducks are year-round residents. There is an active grey partridge and pheasant breeding programme locally.
