Tullamore Golf Club
The James Braid designed course has been situated at Brookfield since 1926 and was upgraded in 1996 by the highly regarded golf-course architect, Patrick Merrigan. While maintaining many of the Braid features the re-design incorporated three new lakes along with seven new greens, eleven new tees, thirty bunkers and one thousand trees were planted to augment those clusters of mature oak, beech and chestnut trees that have been there for a century and more. The result is a magnificent course which combines the best of the Braid design with new developments and features.
The course plays 6,472 yards off the back markers and has three par 5’s, ten par 4’s, and the five par 3’s, with water coming into play on seven holes accuracy and good course management is required. The toughest hole is the index one 474-yard 14th and in addition the 13th, the signature-hole 16th and 18th holes, in particular, provide the visitor with an unforgettable and enjoyable challenge.
