Coollattin Golf Club is a beautiful 18 hole parkland course set in the rolling hills of South County Wicklow and close to the border with Wexford and Carlow.

The course is part of what was formerly the magnificent Fitzwilliam estate famous for its towering Oak, Canadian Redwood and many other specimen trees which are an integral part of the course.


Golf has been played here for more than a century but the club was formalised in 1962. Originally nine hole the course was extended to 18 holes in 1997 and designed by Peter McEvoy, who utilised the natural beauty of the area to maximum effect.

It is a beautiful and peaceful place but don’t be fooled, it presents a real test of golf.
