Both Joe and Mary are very honoured to have been elected Captains in Howth Golf Club. Our Drive In on the 10th January was a wonderful start to our year. We would like to thank all the members who attended and especially those who played on the day. We appreciate the good wishes we have received from so many members of the club. Our juniors in Howth have always been a source of great pride for us. Howth has produced some great golfers over the years and our current junior members are living up to that reputation.
Our course, while undergoing some development at the moment, is in excellent condition. This should be completed shortly and we look forward to reaping the benefits this summer.
We have a lovely clubhouse with Peter Opperman now doing the catering. Recent comments regarding the food in the Club have been excellent.
We look forward to working with our Vice Captains, Brenda and Paddy, in the year ahead. We wish all our teams and their managers the best of luck this year. Most of all we wish our members a happy and healthy year and enjoy your golf.
A Beautiful and Unique James Braid Course
Howth Golf Club is located on the beautiful scenic peninsula of Howth in North-East County Dublin, Ireland and features wonderful views over the city of Dublin. Looking south, we have Dun Laoghaire, Bray and Co. Wickow, North over Co. Dublin and Co. Louth and the Sea to the East. On a clear day you can see as far as the Mountains of Mourne in Co. Down.
Founded in 1916 this heath land links style course was designed by the renowned golfer and course architect James Braid, a 5 times winner of “The Open” Golf Championship who can count the design of the prestigious Kings and Queens Courses at Gleneagles amongst his greatest achievements. James was well known for including dog-leg design golf holes in his course designs and the 5th hole in particular is an excellent example of how he blended a great golf hole into the unique Howth Heathers. The exceptional views from the 16th tee are worthy of mention in any golf guide.
