In a few short months, Faithlegg Golf Club will celebrate its 25th anniversary, having opened its classic Paddy Merrigan-designed course in 1993.
To celebrate 25 years, there is an exclusive membership offer available, combining membership for the rest of 2017 and all of the anniversary year of 2018 with an exceptional selection of extras including access to the Leisure Centre at Faithlegg House Hotel, golf lessons, a €100 dining card to be enjoyed in the beautifully decorated Red Cedar Lounge Clubhouse, along with a 10% discount in the Red Cedar Lounge and Pro Shop, with some terms and conditions applying.
Voted Best Golf Resort in Munster in 2017, with a championship yardage of 6,674 yards, the course at Faithlegg ensures that all level of golfers are tested while at the same time enjoying the challenge. An excellent winter course, Faithlegg offered Paddy Merrigan a perfect canvas to display his artistry 25 years ago, and he did it justice, seamlessly working the holes into a wonderful, rolling landscape and allowing the great, mature trees of the historic estate to frame his creations.
Paddy Merrigan sadly won’t be present for the anniversary as he passed away on January 13 of this year. An agricultural science graduate who became a lecturer in soil science, Paddy Merrigan initially worked with Eddie Hackett to create the links at Waterville, and then embarked on his own career as a golf architect in the late 1980s, creating more than 20 courses.
Merrigan’s trademark undulating greens and cleverly placed water hazards at Faithlegg add to the difficulty of holes that often offer the inexpert player an easy option from the tee before presenting him with a tougher question on the approach.
The course layout is exemplified by its memorable finishing holes with the 16th, 17th and 18th providing an exhilarating end to a golfing experience that is appealing and attractive to groups of all levels from all over Ireland.
Host to the Ladies Irish Open Championship in 2000 and 2001 and the PGA Europro Tour from 2007 to 2009, the celebratory anniversary Membership at Faithlegg Golf Club starts at just €895 for new Members.
