With the improving weather and longer evenings, the summer golf season is in full swing. Whether you are visiting Ireland to play golf or you just want to play somewhere different we have got some great tips and resources to help you along the way and improve your game. Here at Carton House we are a club with a passion for Golf.
Golf can be an intimidating and also quite frustrating game, which is why every golfer should plan their round and implement proper course management. Whether you are playing at your local golf club, or playing a course for the first time, planning and managing your round is essential in not only shooting a low score, but simply enjoying your round of golf.
At Carton House, the Montgomerie and O’Meara courses are designed so that each golfer will make hundreds of decisions throughout their round. Making the correct decisions comes with proper planning and course management to put you in the best position possible for every shot.
When playing on a new course or whether it's been awhile since you last played on the course it's important to know the layout before you tee off. Whether you are playing on our Montgomerie course or on our O’Meara course we have a 3D tour course available which you can check out here. If you want to take it a step further in your preparation our courses are now available to to download as a PC Simulation.

Choosing the right equipment is an essential aspect of pre-round preparation. The weather on the day is the main influencer on a golfer’s equipment. From clothing, to the type of clubs, to your choice of golf ball, setting out the right equipment is vital in making the best of your round.
Besides the weather, for every golfer it is important to have the right clothing and equipment in order to feel comfortable in the environment which you are playing, as the saying goes, “Look Good, Feel Good, Play Good”. Visit our Golf Shop for any equipment you may need.
