Ierne Social and Sports Club

About Pitch & Putt

Just 10 minutes from the City Centre, in the quiet surroundings of Drumcondra, lies the beautiful Ierne Social and Sports Club. Established in 1911 and with over 500 members, the club is bustling with life and has a vast array of facilities which cater for all tastes and ages. The entrance can be found on Grace Park Road, a stones throw from Tolka Park. Ierne is home to a Pitch and Putt course which cannot fail to impress even the most seasoned campaigner, the beautifully kept grounds and greens can be found in majestic condition all year round. Ierne truly is one of the most picturesque courses in Ireland. The course also offers a diverse range of shots which would challenge even the most technically gifted player, including elevated tees, huge bunkers, large trees lining the fairways and tight boundaries behind a number of greens. A great test of Pitch and Putt. As you can see from our pictures of the course, Ierne has small greens, but the course is a fair challenge which rewards a good shot. Even a beginner will enjoy a round in Ierne thanks to the carpet like fairways. Something which is quite rare in Pitch and Putt, Ierne is similar to many golf courses in that they have cut fairways from tee to green, an excellent aesthetic choice which really adds to the pleasure of playing the course. Based on the high quality course and facilities on offer, it will come as no surprise that Ierne have hosted many National, Provincial and County championships down through the years. They are also the hosts to one of the earliest and best supported Scratch Cups on the Dublin Calendar and have two Opens which always get a good crowd. The sizeable car park and excellent bar facilities are an advantage which mean any major event runs smoothly at Ierne.
