Golf Course/
Galway Bay Golf Resort

  “Welcome to the Galway Bay Golf Resort where I have created a truly challenging and spectacular Golf Course using the natural beauty of Galway Bay and its rugged coastline as a natural backdrop."

This is a true Championship Links golf course but a fair test of Golf to all who discover this gem. Washed on three sides by the wild Atlantic ocean laden with pot bunkers together with natural water hazards combines to make Galway Bay one of the truly great courses of Ireland” 

Such is the dramatic backdrop to this Par 72 PGA Championship 18 hole golf course that is Galway Bay Golf Resort.

When designing the course, former Ryder Cup and World Cup golfer Christy O'Connor Jnr. superbly blended the stunning backdrop of Galway Bay and the rugged curves of the Atlantic coastline with mature trees, water hazards, concealed bunkers and highly acclaimed putting surfaces.

With variable wind speed and directions this Championship golf course plays differently each day posing a considerable challenge to even the lowest handicap golfers, yet it is a true and fair test of golf. As you decide on club selection the magnificent panorama of Galway Bay and its beauty is unveiled before you, with the hills of Clare to the South, while to the West sits the majestic city of Galway - city of the tribes - surrounding the rugged and unpredictable Atlantic Ocean.
