Mount Juliet

The sylvan setting of the Mount Juliet estate is home to one of Ireland’s most popular parklands. The course was designed by Jack Nicklaus and opened in 1991. Mount Juliet also boasts a magnificent hotel and the Michelin-starred Lady Helen Restaurant. This is top-tier stuff and the course is just as elegant, sweeping over the landscape, through the trees and throwing in the occasional but dramatic splash of water – the 3rd, 4th 13th and 18th most notably.It is a generous course where golfers of all abilities will find plenty to excite them, be it the short par three 3rd over water, the tree-enshrined setting around the 13th green or the par five 17th, curving between sentinel-like oaks. But perhaps most exciting of all is the entire package, because the Mount Juliet experience is something truly special.
Favourite Hole: the par four 18th is a beast of a finishing hole with water all along the left and tucked in close to the green. When Tiger Woods won (-25) his WGC American Express Championship in 2002, this was the only hole he bogeyed.
What’s in the Bag? A big day with the driver. Attacking greens calls for smart play.
