The East Course was designed by the talented golfer and successful Walker cup captain Peter McEvoy who brilliantly follows the contours of this mature and historic landscape. It has hosted the 1998 Irish PGA which three time major winner Padraig Harrington won in a playoff. The East course also hosted the 2001 Irish Seniors Open. Powerscourt East offers something for everyone, with the traditional mix of four Par 3’s & Par 5’s, and 10 Par 4’s. It is an incredibly enjoyable round of golf, with 3 of the par 3’s playing downhill, and the fourth and signature Par 3, the 16th hole, playing over water. It is a strong but fair test, measuring 5929 metres from the White Tees.
