Bray Golf Club
The course at Bray enjoys the delightful backdrop of the Wicklow Mountains and overlooks the lapping waters of the Irish sea at KIlliney Bay on the other. You couldn’t ask for a more serene scenery to enjoy whilst you make your way to the rewards at the nineteenth hole.
Bray Golf Club boasts a magnificent USGA-standard parkland course which has been in play since June 2003. It was designed by Des Smyth and Declan Brannigan who included a tiered effect for the fairways to counter any effects of the sloping site on which the course was constructed.
There is a choice of three tees for each hole offering you different lengths ranging from 5188 metres to 5990 metres. Whichever length you opt for there are plenty of bunkers and doglegs to keep you on your toes.
