Galway Bay Golf Resort, Co. Galway
Located near the village of Oranmore just outside Galway City the Galway Bay Golf Resort is essentially parkland by the sea, bordered as it is on three sides by the Atlantic. But the absence of trees makes it even more exposed to the elements than might be the case with some links courses.
The natural water hazard is the Atlantic Ocean; such is the dramatic backdrop to this Christy O'Connor Jr designed 7,140 yard par 72 championship course. When designing the course O'Connor superbly blended the surrounding scenery of Galway Bay and the rugged curves of the Atlantic coastline with mature trees, water hazards, concealed bunkers and highly acclaimed putting surfaces.
With variable wind speed and directions the course plays differently each day posing a considerable challenge to even the lowest handicap golfers, yet it is a true and fair test of golf.
