Edenderry Golf Club has been in existence since 1910 having moved from several locations to its present location where Eddie Hackett designed a magnificent golf course built on the natural peat that is synonymous with this part of the country. Eddie used the natural terrain to create a superb golf course that is playable all year round. The course is particularly long at 6,011 metres with a Par of 72 including 4 very good Par 5 holes. There are four Par-3 at Edenderry each of which has its own challenge. The course has an abundance of mature trees and strategically placed bunkers making it a challenging, but fair test of golf for the experienced and beginner alike.
