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.
