On course etiquette

We would ask members and visitors to respect our course by replacing your pitch marks and to repair divots as you go.Our staff put a lot of effort in having our course in pristine condition so its disappointing to see big chunks being left unattended.

 

Examiner Golf Special

Following on from that it was great to see Birr Golf Club being highlighted by Kevin Markham in the  Examiner golf special as one of the top ten hidden gems in the Country.He talked about what defines Birr as the Eskers.The fast draining and sandy soil makes it playable all year round and gives it certain crisp links qualities.The article is worth looking up. https://www.irishexaminer.com/sport/golf/arid-40326557.html
