A much easier walk than the New, with most tees within close yards of the previous greens. However since it had just had its winter maintenance it was not in as good condition as its younger, bigger brother. As you would expect on such a tree lined course in Autumn, we had masses of leaves leading to long ball searches when we veered off the fairway, but it would be churlish to complain about that. I'd love to come back and play it at its best, as i'm sure that would be very good indeed.

Headfort Golf Club, in the heart of County Meath, is a gem of a club which boasts two highly celebrated parkland courses. These championship layouts, the New and Old, are often added to Dublin golf tour packages, and although the journey from the city centre is upwards of 30 minutes, it is well worthwhile.
