Established in 1924
Designed by Ryder Cup star, Christy O' Connor Junior, and officially opened in August 1996, Gort Golf Club is an 18 Hole Championship Golf Course, set in 160 acres of picturesque parkland on the edge of the world famous Burren.
The course lies within 200 yards of the historic monastic settlement of Kilmacduagh. Christy Jnr., himself was particularly excited by the new course at Gort, where he regards, the four Par 3's as among the best on offer at any course in Ireland.

His equally famous uncle, Christy Senior and his good friends Eamonn Darcy and Des Smyth were loud in their praise of both the course and the club house.
“ Having designed many Golf Courses, in Ireland and abroad, this project took me to one of the most beautiful settings in Ireland, nestled by the famous Burren and overlooking Coole Park, the home place of Lady Gregory. I started to construct what I believe will be a very fine 18 Hole Golf Course, carved through the Burren stone and natural waterways.
I truly hope you will enjoy playing this challenging Golf Course as much as I enjoyed designing it.
