Galway Bay Golf Resort one of the best 18 hole golf courses in Galway


A winning blend of natural beauty and golfing adventure, the championship golf course at Galway Bay Golf Resort is regarded among the very best golf courses in Ireland.

When designing the course, former Ryder Cup and World Cup golfer Christy O’Connor Jnr. superbly blended the stunning backdrop 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 this Championship golf 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.
