Carlow
Founded in 1899, the course at Carlow is always in great shape and is a classic example of great club golf. Blessed with free draining soil, Carlow's great to play all year round. High and low handicappers can both be assured of an enjoyable round.

Carlow as expected was presented in excellent condition. Fantastic greens that were lightning quick, encompassed by some narrow yet playable fairways. Rough was fair as a lot of holes are tight to hazards and out of bounds. Carlow is full of character and one really gets the sense that the course has been around for well over a century. While it is not overly long by todays standards it more than makes up for in shot making, it places a premium on accuracy from the tee and precise approach shots, as if the player is not spot on with yardages they will face extremely difficult putts on Carlow's beautiful and tricky greens. Again the condition of the course is worthy of another mention, it was excellent and easily worthy of top marks. Playability may be somewhat difficult for higher handicaps but enjoyment is assured in what is a most welcoming friendly club. I look forward to visiting again.
