Designed by Ryder Cup player Christy O'Connor Jnr. The Championship Course is a par72, 7186 yd's, with a standard scratch of 74 from the back tees. There are no easy holes, with wide landing areas the only concession to demanding approach shots to almost every green. I remember, discussing this course with the Dalton Brothers of Waterford who had recently played Mount Wolseley for the first time of the back tees, they described it thus: "We had a pain in our drivers" this from two International amateur golfers gives one the degree of difficulty. There is water in play on eleven holes, with the eleventh, an all water carry, off the championship tee of 207 yd's. A round of golf at Mount Wolseley is always a treat to remember for golfers who enjoy a challenging and exiting game, in what is a memorable and historic location.The visual delights of this magnificent setting are many - just a few hundred yd's from the banks of the meandering river Slaney, its rich population of mature trees, its lakes - all set against the backdrop of the haunting splendour of the mountains of East Carlow and Wicklow. The hotel and other facilities at Mount Wolseley are as good as you will find anywhere in Ireland.Societies are welcome and group rates are available. Voted the No. 46-ranked golf course in Ireland, by "Golf Digest Ireland" in 2008. Mount Wolsely Country Resort was voted No. 27 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.
