In this episode of Club Choice Chats, we’re speaking with Emmet Staunton, Operations Manager at Headfort Golf Club.
Emmet sets the scene by bringing us back in time to the Marquess of Headfort and the golf clubs origins nearly 100 years ago. We get an understanding of the differences between the original ‘Old Course’ and more recent ‘New Course’, designed by Ryder Cup hero, the late Christy O’Connor Jnr. We also chat about the clubs’ hosting of a successful Challenge Tour event in 2019 and how the course fared against some of the top European pros’.
In October 2019, Headfort Golf Club played host to some of the best up and coming professional golfers in Europe. The European Challenge Tour event, The Stone Irish Challenge, was won in a playoff by Emillio Cuartero Blanco.
Featuring gentle undulations and mature forests, visitors from all over the world have enjoyed visits to Headfort Golf Club. The option of two courses combined with excellent clubhouse services make it a superb visitor experience.
If you’d like to visit Headfort Golf Club, we’d recommend a stay in the Headfort Arms Hotel, perfectly located just two minutes from the 1st tee.
