Course Description
Course Description:

Hazel Grove was founded in 1988 when P. J. Foley asked Watty Sullivan the resident professional at Grange Golf Club to design this 9-hole Parkland on the foothills of the Dublin Mountains. Watty was a legend in his, own time, with a reputation of being one of the best coaches in Irish golf. When I first brought Shane to Watty for a lesson and an assessment it was one of the most amusing hours I've ever spent on a golf course. I don't know what Shane learned but I learned a lot just listening to this gentleman of golf. I've had the pleasure of meeting him several times after that and all as one could do is listen his stories were true and amusing. Hazel Grove almost within the village of Tallaght is one of the most friendliest golf clubs to be found in Ireland and the visitor is extended a warm and genuine welcome at Hazel Grove.

Full credit must be given to my old friend Martin Hynes, who is now coaching the youth in Hazel Grove Martin played a major part in Padraig Harrington's devilment when coaching at Stackstown, and in Mark Campbell's and Michael McDermott's the best of which we have yet to see.
