For the first 15 years of its existence the Club was located in an area known as Robinhood, near Inchicore, about 4 miles south west of Dublin centre. During this period the Club was known as the Robinhood Golf Club. The formal club structure was abandoned for some years during the First World War but was restored again after the war was over. At this time ‘’Ben’’ Sayers, the famous Scottish golfer and course designer, was engaged to redesign the course. By 1925 however the club had outgrown its 9 hole course in Robinhood and with no room to extend the course, the founding fathers of the Club, showing great foresight and wisdom, acquired a lease on the Newlands Demesne just 2 miles away at Newlands Cross on the main road leading south from the city. The Demesne included 120 acres of mature parkland estate together with an historic manor house dating back to the 17th century (see details below)
