Open Days


Just imagine teeing off as you gaze out onto gorgeous Galway Bay, savouring a well-deserved round of golf on a course that was designed by none other than the late, great Ryder Cup legend, Christy O’ Connor Jr. – it’s an opportunity not to be missed. 

We’re always keen to welcome new faces who’d like to enjoy a round of golf in a remarkable setting, and our Open Days make it easy to mix fun with a little friendly competition.

Throughout 2023, we welcomed so many golfers to our headland course overlooking Galway Bay. Across April, May, June, July, August, and September, we had a total of 24 winners across multiple categories. Our Grand Final was held on October 28th where category winners faced off in a winner-takes-all day of riveting golf. 

Congratulations to our winners:

  • 1st place goes to Seamus Crowe, who’s secured a year’s membership.
  • Our 2nd place winner, Sean Gallagher, will be enjoying a stay in The Connacht Hotel.
  • For 3rd place, Philip Sommers has snagged an incredible trackman session.
  • And let’s not forget our Junior winner, Mickey Grealy, who’s earned a year’s junior membership.

Thank you to all who participated and made 2023 such an exciting year!
