Rathdowney Golf Club is a beautiful parkland golf course set in the south western corner of Co. Laois. Established in 1930 it covers 104 acres of countryside and offers a very pleasant round of golf. In 1997 the course was extended to 18 holes, using the advice of renowned golf course designer Pat Ruddy, and now offers a new challenge to all who play it. In recent years a new clubhouse was opened offering modern facilities and services. Today the course is of a matured state, with challenging holes and fairways. The bar and restaurant (The Willow [email protected] Golf Club) are open to the public and cater for all events including societies and open events. Rathdowney Golf Club is a unique location to play an enjoyable round of golf.
