Gowran Park is one of Ireland’s leading racecourses and is located 15 minutes from Kilkenny city. The excellent hospitality facilities make Gowran Park the perfect location for a great racing day experience. Be it a corporate day out, a hen party, a family afternoon, Ladies Day or The Goffs Thyestes Chase, a day a Gowran Park will live long in the memory.
In 2001, Gowran Park developed this unique 18 hole championship golf golf course to compliment its renowned race meetings. The course meanders in and around 130 acres of magnificent parkland with 5 holes within the racecourse boundary and the remainder in the mature woodland and lake settings of the old Annaly Estate.
With the breath-taking backdrop of the Blackstairs Mountains this par 71, 18 hole track provides an excellent test of golf for the low handicap golfer whilst also being very enjoyable for the middle to high handicappers.
