Carton house Golf Club
Carton House, a wellness hotel with 2 golf courses, is located west of Dublin in County Kildare. It belongs to the top 100 golf courses worldwide. The O’Meara Course is very similar to the Montgomerie Course. Greens and fairways are undulating, but it is a little more uphill and downhill here. The trees are a little closer, but hardly affect the game. Holes 14, 15, and 16, where a river and a lake form water hazards, are quite interesting. The Montgomerie course is spacious, level, and characterized by wide undulating fairways with plenty of sand bunkers. The greens are also very undulating. There is water only on hole 1, where you have to tee off over a stream, and on hole 18, where you have to play along a pond to the left. The course is relatively easy to play, shots are most likely to be lost on the greens.
