Established in 1966, Shannons 6,763-yard course, designed by John D Harris, has been tested by golfers from all over the world members, European professionals and a host of US stars. Shannon has proudly hosted both Irish and European amateur championships and the Mens Amateur Irish Close Championship and, a lot more is planned for the future. Now firmly established as one of Irelands premier parkland courses, Shannons fairways feature natural meadow grass planted on either side with spruce, evergreens and wide variety of deciduous trees. The course presents a mixture of sand-based and traditional greens, maintained to the highest standard and protected by numerous sand bunkers to offer the final challenge to each hole. Water hazards are a feature of the 6th, 7 th, 8 th, 14 th and 17th holes with the par three 17th the courses signature hole, requiring a dedicated golf shot over the Shannon Estuary. Why not visit and test the course for yourself? Youll receive a very friendly Co Clare welcome. Youre sure to plan a return visit.
