Loughrea Golf Club has long been recognised as a lovely parkland course in the West of Ireland, nestled away in Graigue, Loughrea in County Galway. They have a proud tradition of giving each and every golfer a warm welcome while providing a challenging course for all standards of golfers. After playing the course, the very important 19th Hole has a great atmosphere for members, guests, visitors and societies alike.
The members and committees have continued to strive to improve the layout and conditioning of their course over the years and were rewarded for their hard work by recently hosting many GUI events including the Connacht Junior Cup provincial qualifiers and the Connacht Cups and Shields Finals in 2011. A few of the many comments received during the Connacht Cups & Shields Finals include the following:
“I play in all the championships in Ireland and generally Baltray are the best greens we play on, but Loughrea greens are every bit as good, if not better” Joe Lyons, Galway, Irish International
“For the host club, Loughrea, players and spectators alike were in awe of the levels they had taken course presentation to and all were glowing in their praise of course superintendent Colm Muldoon and his team” Enda Lonergan, General Secretary, Connacht Branch & Tournament Director
It was on the back of these GUI events, and the encouraging feedback that the course received, that the Connacht Branch’s Championship Committee voted the golf course the ‘best presented course in Connacht of 2011’.

They have many Golf Society packages on offer and also have a Play & Stay deal with the Loughrea Hotel & Spa offering 2 nights B & B plus dinner & 1 Round of Golf for only €70 per person sharing!!
