The Essence of Parkland Golf in a Central Location Tullamore is a championship golf course located in a traditional parkland setting. It has many picturesque views, which are enhanced by clusters of mature oak, beech and chestnut trees with the Slieve Bloom Mountains in the background. Tullamore golf course is in a very central location just a little over an hour from the M50 in Dublin and also from Galway. The Course is located at Brookfield since 1926 and in 1938, the Club invited James Braid, a 5 times British Open winner, to visit Tullamore to inspect the course and recommend what changes should be made to improve the overall standard of Brookfield. This was of significant benefit as Braid suggested new holes, a bunkering plan and a new 18th hole. In the mid 1990’s course architect, Patrick Merrigan was engaged to re-design the course. The result which was unveiled in our Centenary Year, 1996, is a magnificent course which combines the best of the James Braid design with three new lakes along with new greens, new tees and new bunkers. Drainage and irrigation were upgraded and 5,000 trees were planted to augment those mature oak, beech and chestnut trees that had been there for a century and more. The 5th, 13th, 14th, 16th and 18th holes in particular, provide the visitor with an unforgettable challenge and a course of championship standard to the discerning golfer. Many major competitions have been hosted at Tullamore including: ILGU Irish Senior Women’s Close Championship GUI All-Ireland Cups and Shields finals GUI Leinster Boys Championships The GUI All-Ireland Cups and Shields Finals are regarded as the largest Club Festival of Golf of its kind in the world and Tullamore was proud to host these finals in 2009 where there was nothing but praise for the quality and standard of the course and our facilities
