Concra Wood

Opened in 2008 , Concra Wood is one of Ireland ’ s youngest and highest quality parkland courses … there would be few who could dispute that it also has the most beautiful setting of any inland course . Set on the shores of Lough Muckno , holes and water are deeply entwined , rarely apart for long and sublime when their embrace tightens . On three occasions you could find yourself hitting over the lough ’ s waters . The elevation changes are significant , promising mesmerising views and countless tempting tee and approach shots .
Your shot to the 10th green is one you will be desperate to hit perfectly , so you can watch it soar before it falls to the putting surface far below . Designed by the O ’ Connor duo ( Sr and Jr ), this is golf on a big and spacious scale . Holes move freely through an enchanting tree-drenched landscape , introducing you to the lough on several holes . Expect all the smart touches of such a professional course , especially the greens .
Favourite Hole
Plenty to choose from but the par four 3rd kickstarts the round with a hole dropping quickly and doglegging out to the lough . The start of many thrills .
What ’ s in the Bag ?
Keeping your head down and not being distracted by the views … good luck doing that on the 10th .
