A word from the Captain, Declan Long
Since winning golf club on the month, Wicklow Golf Club has had a number of queries about who we are and where we came from. Well, we were founded in 1904 with a 9 hole course and extended to 18 hole in 1991. We have had a long and colourful history but the best way to get a feel for our club and the legacy of the past 111 years is to pay us a visit. The course itself is amazing and the views are only stunning and then there is our friendly and sociable clubhouse with full bar and catering facilities.
We have weekly open men’s singles competitions on Thursday as well as opens on one Sunday a month. There is also an open Ladies and Gents Seniors competition on the 4th Tuesday of every month where the entry fee is only €10 for visitors. Open Week for 2016 begins on the 28th June with a variety of open events for both Ladies and Gents.
If you can’t make one of the open competitions, green fees are very welcome and extremely good value. We also welcome societies and classics.
