Golfing in the Glenns – The Story of Birr Golf Club 1893-2003

Categories: ,


“The club was founded in 1893 and the course has been carved out of natural woodland and eskers ..undulating fairways, ridges, hills and hollows.”

It wasn’t until 1909 that the club moved to the Glenns on 200 acres which was leased from the Earl of Rosse.

Birr Golf Club is the host club for the Midland Boys Championship since 1969 and counts Richie Coughlan, Justin Kehoe and Joe Lyons amongst its more accomplished members.
