Course Description:

Designed by Paddy Merrigan, Tulfarris is a must for any golfers, who enjoys their golf in spectacular surroundings. Tulfarris Golf Course nestled between the spectacular Wicklow Mountains and Blessington Lakes, is a world class championship golf course. 7116 yd's par 73 with a standard scratch of 74 off the back tees. Laid out on 200 acres at Tulfarris House Hotel and Country Club, the contours and water features of the course blend into the spectacular scenery of the area in a truly sympathetic way.

Each golf hole is unique and is designed for enjoyment at all levels. The course is beautifully maintained and is planted with an abundance of mature trees, ferns and wild Grouse. The 608 yard par 5 7th has one of the most remarkable tee shots off the back stakes. It is a lateral 240 yd's carry over the lake with no bale out. Tulfarris was the venue of the AIB Senior’s Championship in May 2000. Tulfarris is a wonderful golf experience that will bring you back again and again.

Voted the No. 59-ranked golf course in Ireland, by “Golf Digest Ireland” in 2008. Tulfarris Hotel & Golf Resort was voted No. 24 Parkland/Inland Course in Ireland by "Backspin" Irelands leading Golf magazine in 2008, the panel comprised of a selection of 52 Professional and amateur golfers throughout Ireland.

Members Achievements

2001 Captain John Horan recorded a unique double on this fine course. John had the last hole-in-one on the old course back in 1996. He holed out on the old 9th with an eight-iron, before the course was upgraded. No member had recorded a hole-in-one until John aced the par 3 162 yd's second with his three-iron in June 2001. Another coincidence is that Benny Teevans was playing with him on both occasions.Raymond Williams was selected on the Leinster Boys' Team in 2000 and he won the golfer of the Month in the Druid's Glen-Irish Independent, Raymond was a Irish Youths' International in 2004 playing against Scotland.

Bruce Flecher won the AIB Irish Seniors Open Championship here in May 2000.
