Coollattin Golf Club is a beautiful and challenging par 72 layout located in the heart of historic Coollattin Park in south County Wicklow.
The first golf course at Coollattin was developed, in 1922, by William ('Billy') Wentworth, the 7th
Earl Fitzwilliam. The Earl, an avid golfer and a nephew of one of America's first professional golfers, could not have found a more stunning setting. The golf course was laid out against the backdrop of superb specimen trees, rhododendrons and azaleas
a rare and beautiful collection which had been planted and nurtured by 'Billy's' family and ancestors since the early 1700's.
The golf course at Coollattin has over the years undergone many.changes. However, the canvas on which it is laid out is still the same, it still provides us with the same dazzling kaleidoscope of colour with its never ending changes of hue and shade manifested
through the four seasons. As Kevin Markham says in 'HOOKED', his recent review of Irish golf courses -'The setting is imperious, with the huge trees watching over your every step of the way, and golf that is serious fun'.
Coollattin today provides a sylvan heaven in the quiet backwater of south County Wicklow. We are almost exacly half
way betwen Dublin...
