Designed by the renowned Scottish course architect Dr. Alistair MacKenzie, Galway Golf Club is 5,974 metres par 70 with a standard scratch of 71 off the back tees. The first thing that will strike you is you have to cross under the road to play the first four holes.
Galway is a tight mature tree lined course with plenty of wild gorse, to punish the wayward shot. Many of the greens are elevated and tiered which is the trademark of the architect. In order to put a good card together on this fine challenge of golf, you must be accuracy off the tee, a good short game and your putter to be hot. Playing to your handicap here, your game is in good shape.
