If you like to think your way around a golf course, then Castlebar is just the ticket. With a par of 71 and a length of 5,555 metres (middle tees), this is a course big hitters may feel they can take apart. That won’t happen. This is a tidy, often tight, undulating, tree-lined parkland just outside Castlebar town. Water features prominently, too, so tackling the greens requires smart positioning off the tee.Eighteen new greens were added in 2001, taking Castlebar to a whole new level, with putting surfaces and shapes described in glowing terms by all who have experienced them.
