Course Information

The 18 hole course at Abbeyleix is fast developing a reputation as one of the best courses in the midlands. Designed by the well known Golf Architect Mel Flanigan, the 18 hole layout will prove a fair test of Golf for players of all categories.
The old 9 hole course was recognised as one of the best 9 hole courses in the country and now having obtained an adjacent piece of rolling terrain which contains many specimen mature trees, the 18 holes ensures enjoyable golf with many scenic views.
A famous feature of the old course at Abbeyleix was the beautiful soil based greens, as well as retaining the old greens, all the new greens are again soil based giving a consistency over 18 holes.
