VISIT AN ANCIENT IRISH CASTLE
Ashford Castle is a medieval and Victorian castle that has been expanded over the centuries near Cong on the Mayo-Galway border, on the Galway side of Lough Corrib in Ireland. Was previously owned by the Guinness family.
The course, the original deer park of the estate, was designed by the renowned Irish golf architect Eddie Hackett and imaginatively integrates a wide variety of natural features and hazards to create charming par 3s, exciting par 4s and a formidable par 5. The legendary Irish golfer, Christy O’Connor Senior started his illustrious career here in 1947 as our professional before going on to participate in 10 Ryder Cups!
