Glenlo Abbey Hotel Golf Club

 

 Golf on on the private 9-hole double green lakeside golf course, practice in the 12-bay driving range and on hand is our resident PGA professional, Bill Daly & his team to coach beginners and even the more experienced. The 138-acre waterfront estate is home to a challenging double 9-hole Parkland, par 71, golf course with a 12-Bay driving range. This uniquely laid-out Golf Course, with very large Double Greens and Quadruple Tees is, in effect, two challenging 9-Hole Courses back to back.

 

From the Championship Tees it measures 6,538 yards, with 3 other sets of Tees for Medal Rounds, Societies and Ladies. This takes on an 18-Hole character after playing the first 9 holes – a challenging course with an appealing difference! Our state-of-the-art 12 Bay Driving Range opened in June 1996. Designed to blend in with its surroundings, it is a log construction and because it is floodlit, golfers can practice their swing until late every night all year round. You practise with real golf balls! “
