What the club says: Concra Wood Golf & Country Club is the latest stage in the evolution of Castleblayney Golf Club. Founded as a 9 hole course in 1905, opposite the entrance to Concra Wood, it closed in 1949. In 1985, it was reborn in the grounds of Hope Castle (visible across Lough Muckno), before moving to its current location in 2008, and expanding to 18 holes.

The idea for a new 18 hole course began in early 2000, thanks to the vision and planning of Castleblayney Golf Club. The golf club approached Coillte to buy 240 acres of dramatic, wooded landscape that tilts down into Lough Muckno. The views are spectacular, stretching across the Monaghan Drumlins to the Cooley and Mourne Mountains to the east, and the Slieve Gullion and Mullyash Mountains to the north. And all the while you are surrounded by the lake and its scattering of islands, including Black Island, Otter Island, Crane Island and White Island. It is a unique setting that golfers, fishermen and walkers will love.

The landscape holds a rich history. The ruins of an old folly Castle (known locally as McMahon’s Castle), built by Lord Blayney, lies beside the 8th tee box, while the Temple ruin is located between the 9th tee and 4th fairway. This was a picnic retreat for Lord Blayney. Elsewhere, the Belfast steps are inextricably linked with Castleblayney folklore and the fortunes and misfortunes of the Blayney family.

The shape and flow of the golf course are perfectly complemented by the drumlins that roll across the countryside. This easy rhythm adds to the beauty of the course and its challenges, and it will inspire every golfer who chooses to play here. Woods and trees stretch their way elegantly around the course and between holes to give Concra Wood a truly natural touch.

Heaven

This is a wonderful course with friendly staff and fantastic views to be enjoyed as you play the course. I struggled with the opening holes as balls ran a last faster than we could ever imagine so they hit water hazards and bunkers with little effort. Greens are in good shape although breaks in them gave us plenty of challenge.

Fabulous but need buggies!

One of the best courses I have played. Course in great condition, interesting, challenging layout but still playable. Amazing scenery. Would be expensive but I played it with a society so cannot complain about price. Buggies a must - some of the elevation changes are huge! Buggies have to go down path on 10th not fairway as so steep!

This place is an absolute diamond. The setting for this place is stunning, most of the holes are glorious and pose a different challenge. The only problem for some people may be the length of the course. One of the best courses I've played in a long time. A must for anyone. If you get it in good weather there isn't anywhere id rather be.
