Course Description
Course Description:

Wexford Golf Club is an 18-hole, 5,734 metres Par 72 with a standard scratch of 70, redesigned by Ryder Cup player Des Smyth. Located right in the historic town of Wexford. The first hole which is a Par 3, 174 metres, index 5, makes a statement that you are at the beginning of a roller-coaster round of golf. As you progress, you will enjoy panoramic and stunning views of Wexford Town and Harbour, Rosslare and Rosslare Harbour, with Forth Mountain, the Blackstairs and Wicklow Mountains in the background.

The front nine has a Par of 35, and the back nine a Par of 37. The last four holes, which begin and end back at the clubhouse in a lovely loop, have to be played, to be believed. Visiting players consistently describe them as the most interesting finishing holes they have experienced.Visitors are always made welcome and the fine clubhouse caters for all the requirements the golfer requires.
