Athy Golf Club was formed in 1906 as a nine hole course and was extended to 18 holes in 1993. The course had a Par of 71 and it extended to 6,400 yards from the medal tees.
Within the last two years we have carried out some major developmental work on the course to create a tougher test of golf. We changed the teeing grounds on 11 holes, we built a new Par 5 where the 3rd shot is to a green protected by a lake, we planted new trees and we built 33 new bunkers. The course is now only marginally longer but we decided to put a premium on accuracy and not on length at Athy Golf Club.
The Par is now 72 and it is almost 6,500 yards off the Blues.
The last 5 holes in Athy are now even more demanding and the 16th and 17th holes are considered by many to be among the most difficult consecutive par 4's you will find anywhere. Even the 18th is now a more testing finishing hole because if you avoid the Bunkers off the Tee you are still faced with more bunkers for your 2nd and 3rd shots.
Despite all these changes we consider our course to be a fair test of golf and we hope you enjoy your visit to Athy as much as we enjoy playing it as members.
