Tramore Golf Club, Ireland
Tramore Golf Club located in the South East of Ireland is one of the oldest golf clubs in Ireland where golf has been played since 1894. It continues to be one of the most popular venues for golf in Waterford.
It became established as one of the premier parkland courses in Ireland and has played host to the Irish Close Championship on 3 occasions. It has also hosted Professional tournaments and major club competitions over the years. In 2011 it hosted the Irish Youth Championship in June and the Ladies Senior Home International Matches in September.
Tramore has been selected yet again to host the Irish Close Championship in 2015. Not content to sit back and enjoy their Championship 18-hole course, the progressive members at Tramore voted in 2006 to engage internationally renowned golf course designer Jeff Howes. (Jeff Howes is one of Europe’s leading Golf Architects having worked with names such as Jack Nicklaus, Seve Ballesteros, Retief Goosen and Robert Trent Jones Snr) to remodel the existing course, while preserving it’s integrity and also create a new nine holes of similar quality.
The result is a fantastic blend of “the Old and the New”. Tramore now boasts 27 holes with sand based greens constructed to USGA specification.
