Welcome to another episode of Club Choice Chats where this week we’re speaking with Colin Browne, the 2020 Captain of Westport Golf Club.
A course where a “genuine welcome” awaits you, Colin speaks proudly of a place that’s been voted ‘The best town in Ireland to live in’ and about this West Coast course having some truly unique views of Clew Bay and Croagh Patrick.
It’s a course located along the Wild Atlantic Way and is described by Colin as a “Roller coaster experience” to play. We chat about one of Paul McGinleys favourite Par 5’s, the hosting of Rory McIlroy in the 2005 Amateur Close Championship and the club’s staging of last years Cups & Shields final.
Ideally located just a 5 minute drive from the town that shares its name. Westport Golf Club is a beautiful parkland course set amid the stunning scenery of Clew Bay and Croagh Patrick.
Designed by the renowned golf course architects Fred Hawtree & Sons, the club has been voted Best Parkland in Connaught 2018 and played host to the All Ireland Cups & Shields in 2019.
If you’re interested in exploring the West Coast of Ireland with a trip to Westport Golf Club, the Castlecourt Hotel is the perfect base from which to experience the Wild Atlantic Way.
