Renowned golf course designer, Peter McEvoy, has described the ‘New Forest Golf Club’ in Tyrrellspass, Co. Westmeath as, “the best course I have yet designed”. The undulating, natural forested surroundings bring an outstanding quality to the course, with some of the finest putting surfaces, tees and fairways in the region.
A sense of age and history is present on every step of your round, be it from long tree-lined fairways or the surrounding architecture. This 18 hole, par 72 championship layout is 6,956 yards from the back tees and surrounds the 18th century estate manor house which has been converted into one of the most interesting and inviting clubhouses in Ireland.
