Claycastle Pitch & Putt Club
- View as map
Claycastle Pitch & Putt club offers fun for beginners and a challenge for the experienced player. A 2 min walk from the beach and next door to Aura leisure centre, swimming pool and gym. The Holy Trinity of enjoyment in Youghal.
Claycastle pitch and putt club’s motto in Latin would surely be “aliquid pro sulum”, because it really does have “something for everyone”.
It is situated right on Youghal’s glorious seafront and will test experienced players, yet still be fun for beginners. The course is open all year round, and is open to the public, as well as having a thriving adult membership and a rapidly expanding Juvenile section.
Although only open since 1986 the course has evolved into one of the finest in Ireland and had the honour of hosting the National Gents matchplay in 2012. The course boasts several holes around a lake as well as a severely undulating, and hilly profile. It has been suggested that keeping 4’s off your card is more important than getting 2’s on the card. When the locals nickname a hole “doom & gloom” you know it’s going to be a test.
Green fees are €5 per player, and for visitors there is also the facility to hire clubs and balls. Children from the age of 8 are welcome, as well as groups, and there is no need to pre-book.
The new clubhouse is due to open early in 2016, and will be the final piece in the clubs 30 year celebrations.
The club has produced several County, Provincial and National champions.
In 2012 Claycastle was proud to be named Pitch & Putt Union Of Ireland “Club of the year”.
