About the Course
“I know my game is in great shape when I play well around Seapoint”
Seapoint may be a relatively young links course, though the golfer experience gives testament to the quality of challenge presented by its designers. Since its doors opened in 1995, the course has hosted a European Tour matchplay event, two Irish PGAs and the country’s leading Amateur event, the Irish Amateur Close Championship.
Measuring 7,150 yards from its championship tees, Seapoint can be made a challenging test for even the best of golfers. However, with three to five tee boxes on every hole (including a set dedicated to winter golf only) the course is a fair test to ensure golfers of all standards can enjoy their round.
The golfing Gods and the weather conspire to ensure no two rounds are ever the same around this course, with wind often a factor. Our two loops of nine and multiple changes in hole direction offers the relief of playing downwind, the challenge of hitting into the wind and battling cross winds during 18-holes at Seapoint. It’s the essence of enjoyable links golf, alongside avoiding our revetted bunkers and cursing the odd, strange bounce. If you learn to take it all in your stride, will never tire of the challenge.
“Seapoint is a mesmerising and much under rated par-72 featuring half a dozen strong par fours of more than 400 yards and a quartet of tantalising par-threes leaving you to make up your score on the par fives, two of which are amongst the toughest holes on the course.”
Brian Keogh – Irish Independent
“The Challenge is that every hole test something or other – courage, intelligence, touch”
Declan Brannigan, Course Designer
Course improvements over the years included the addition of enhanced swales and run off areas, a bunker renovation programme and the introduction of more fescue grasses across the course. Our vision is to enhance the course’s natural links character, while presenting it to the highest possible standard. Seapoint is playable all the year round, closed only during the most adverse of conditions.
Ireland is blessed with many top-class golf courses and whilst we may be young, we’re proud with the company we keep, alongside the best of them
