Carton House, three time host venue of the Irish Open, has recently made some exciting changes to the magnificent O’Meara Golf Course with the re-location of the 1st and 18th holes.
The O’Meara course, designed by 1998 Open Champion and US Masters Champion Mark O’Meara has been changed to a Par 73, starting and finishing at the 18th century Carton House.
Nestled in the woodland and surrounds of Carton Estate and banks of the River Rye, the new layout offers a challenging golf experience for all levels of golfer.
Francis Howley, Director of Golf said, “The new changes to the O’Meara course really enhance what was already an excellent golfing experience.
“The O’Meara course is played by over 30,000 players every season and Carton House is committed to ensuring an enjoyable golfing experience.
“The recent changes see the 1st and 18th holes relocated closer to the Clubhouse and Great House meaning that all golfers can now walk to and from the 1st and 18th holes, creating a more memorable experience”
The O’Meara Course this year will stage the ‘All-Ireland Cups and Shields National Finals’ sponsored by AIG in September and will also host the Irish PGA Challenge in July.
