The Macreddin Valley is an area of outstanding natural beauty, tucked away at the southern reaches of the Wicklow Mountains, just 16km from Arklow Town. In the heart of the valley lies Macreddin Golf Course, a magnificent 18-hole, Par 72 golf course set within 160 acres of tranquil woodland splendour, spanning 7,173 yards.
Macreddin is the first course ever designed by Irish professional golfer and Ryder Cup Captain Paul McGinley. After years of competing at the peak of the game, playing against the world’s elite golfers and across the most acclaimed golf courses, Paul brought all his experience to bear in creating a course that oozes class and quality.
Macreddin Golf Course is described by Golf World Magazine as “Outstanding and Truly Spectacular” and was crowned ‘Best Hidden Gem Leinster’ in the Golfers Guide to Ireland Awards 2015. Golf Journalist Kevin Markham’s rates Macreddin in his Top 10 Golf Courses in Ireland, and he has played all 340!
Facilities include a 300m long driving range, open to the public for summer and winter use. The USGA specification dedicated short-game practice area is designed to cater for those all-important short-range shots around the green and from greenside bunkers. 50 Golf Buggies are available for hire with a network of buggy paths stretching along every hole which allows for all year-round buggy usage.
A small clubhouse is complemented by the wonderful facilities of Macreddin Village and the Brooklodge Hotel, which is located directly across the road. This fabulous 4-star hotel boasts two restaurants, The Orchard Café and Acton’s Traditional Irish Pub, which brews its own beer.
