Designed by Jack Nicklaus, Mount Juliet golf course first opened in 1991 with a friendly match between Jack Nicklaus and Christy O’Connor Snr. Since then, the course has established itself as a premier venue for top professional and leisure golfers from around the world
Set in the rolling pastures and woodland of Ireland’s sunny South East, the course is both captivating and memorable. Tiger Woods’ declaration that Mount Juliet presented ‘perfect fairways’ and the ‘best greens we’ve putted on all year’, was a rich tribute to the stature of Ireland’s leading parkland golf course. With some slight extensions and new features since opening, Mount Juliet Golf Course has improved on an already outstanding layout, in its ongoing pursuit of golfing excellence. Mount Juliet has been recently been voted Ireland’s Best Parkland Golf Course & opened the amazing ‘Paul McGinley Golf Academy.
The 7,300 yard, par 72 layout combines many features – rolling fairways, water hazards, contoured greens – all of which blend superbly into the spectacular landscapes surrounding this unique estate.
Mount Juliet Golf Club has hosted two Word Golf Championships (2002 & 2004) three Irish Opens Tournaments, in 1993, 1994 and 1995.
Once again the ‘Irish Kids Golf Tour’ Leinster Trophy will be competed for on this magnificent Resort.
