Castleknock was built between April and September 2004 and opened for play in July 2005.
The championship standard 18-hole golf course and practice facilities were built for Monarch Properties Ltd and Tower Hotel Group on land that was previously part of the Somerton House demesne, overlooking wooded backdrop of the River Liffey valley – now bordering holes #3 to #6. With a par of 72 and a length of 6700 yards, it features large undulating greens, multiple teeing positions and 11 dramatic lakes.
Castleknock’s challenging, strategic design was realised with high quality construction by SOL Golf and supervised by Jonathan.
Course manager, John Jennings, has managed to produce what some consider to be the best greens in Ireland.
