Macreddin Golf Club
Alongside his co-designer, the legendary Roger Jones, McKinley has showcased his talent throughout the visually appealing and challenging 7172 yards, Par 72 ‘golfing pilgrimage’ in the Wicklow countryside. He provides a splendid definition through the use of the natural forestation. The opening holes overlook the mature tree-lined fairways Macreddin is famous for while the front nine sweeps eastward from the clubhouse. The first nine holes' splendor and style lies in the twisty fairways amongst natural contours and tender slopes of the terrain, with stunning panoramic landscapes throughout the valley. The back nine holes represent a beautiful combination of Macreddin’s natural elements - pines, greens and landing areas. The free-flowing brook embedded throughout the back nine is where decision-making skills of golfers are put on a test.
