Cill Dara Golf Club is situated on the edge of the Curragh plains, perhaps the oldest and most extensive tract of semi-natural grassland in Europe. An area of international significance with a wealth of history and archaeological features and also the home of the thoroughbred racehorse. The Curragh plain was declared a national monument in 1996.

Thus, the golf course is uniquely located, with greens of superb texture and great character matched only by the delicate fabric of the fairways. A “LUSH SWARD IN SUMMER” A “WINDY TUNDRA IN WINTER”

The golf club was founded in 1921 and became affiliated to the GUI in the following year. In 1922 the club purchased an army hut for several hundred pounds as their new pavilion. By 1933 further renovations to the clubhouse had taken place and by the time the club celebrated its silver jubilee, Cill Dara had become very popular with leading amateur and professional golfers.

JB Carr, an honorary member, played many times and won the unique Golden Ball Competition. In 1986 a modern clubhouse was constructed. The project was completed on schedule, funded entirely by club members.
