Concra Wood Golf and Country Club
First Established: 2008
Designed By: Christy O’Connor Snr., and Christy O’Connor Jnr.
Designed by two Irish golfing legends, namely Christy O’Connor Snr. and his nephew Christy O’Connor Jnr., Concra Wood sits within beautiful Irish rolling countryside, and runs alongside the serene Lough Muckno, which can be viewed together with the many tree-filled islands scattered throughout the lough, from many of the holes; and the water hazardously comes into play on a number of shots.
However, it’s not just the scenery you’ll remember after your visit to Concra Wood because the O’Connors have designed a stunning parkland layout whereby you only see the challenge ahead of you at each hole while standing on the respective tee box, and where a number of brave drives are required coupled with a necessary finesse around intricately engineered and manicured green complexes. Although perhaps not as well-known as other Irish golf courses, Concra Wood is no less worthy of your attention.
