Welcome to Galway Golf Club, a hidden gem nestled in the heart of the seaside resort of Salthill. With a rich history dating back to 1895, this members club offers visitors a Championship Standard 18-hole Parkland Course with breathtaking views of Galway Bay, the Burren, and the Aran Islands.
Measuring 5,974 meters and playing to a par of 70, Galway Golf Club presents a fine test of golfing skill. The first four holes, running alongside Galway Bay, can be accessed via an underground pedestrian tunnel, adding a unique touch to the course.
