Reviewed on

Stackstown G.C. a parkland course about 30 minutes from Dublin. The course is up high and overlooks all of the greater Dublin area and, as a result, is a very hilly course.

The other claim to fame is that it is the home of three time major winner Padraig Harrington. Photos of Padraig abound throughout the clubhouse and there is also a room with some cool memorabilia showcasing his career from amateur to three time major champion.

With the course being as hilly as it is, there are very few level lies for the entire round. Downhill, uphill, side hill is the name of the game here. With severe elevation changes club selection becomes everything.

The first is a perfunctory uphil par four and then the second is a 180 yard straight downhill par 3 where club selection is vital. The rest of the front nine follows similar pattern concluding with the tough 404 yard ninth. The uphill par 3 tenth is followed by a terrific short 293 yard par four where placement is king. You could probably use half your clubs off this tee depending on what you want hit into the green.

The back nine continues in this vein and finishes with a 185 yard uphill par 3 and 520 yard sidehill par 5. A par, par finish is extremely well earned.

Overall, an enjoyable but very tough physical round on a well conditioned track.
