Golf Courses

Sillogue Golf Course: In 1984 Dublin City Council took its first step into public golf course design and construction when they opened a 9-Hole Public Golf Course that was to be known as Silloge Park. In 1995 the public golf course was extended to 18 Holes with a major re-design and development taking place due to the construction of the M50 Motorway. In fact only 5 of the original 9-Holes were kept. Since, the redevelopment Silloge Park Public Golf Course has flourished and become one of the most popular public golf courses in the Ireland. It provides golfers with an enjoyable, fair test of golf in a wonderful parkland setting, at exceptional value for money.
The clubhouse pavilion at Silloge Park Public Golf Course was officially opened in 2001 by Lord Mayor of Dublin Maurice Ahern. It now provides golfers with a warm, friendly and relaxed environment in which they can enjoy some light refreshments after their round of golf
