Since its establishment in 1976, Stackstown Golf club has grown into one of the most well respected and attractive venues to play golf in Dublin. Set amidst the Dublin Mountains, with its unique wildlife and panoramic views of Dublin Bay and City, Stackstown has a uniqueness of its own.
While Padraig Harrington is its most famous son, the ladies and gents of Stackstown have won honour in most national competitions including the major provincial championships in Ireland. It was founded as a Golf Club for Ireland's national police force, the Garda Síochána, and is now happy to welcome visitors from all over the world.
Padraig Harrington played his amateur golf out of Stackstown Golf Club, on the foothills of the Dublin Mountains. He had an illustrious amateur career, having played in three Walker Cups; he won the Irish Amateur Close Championship at Lahinch in 1995 and the West in 1994.
Padraig turned professional after the European victory in the Walker Cup at Royal Portcawl in 1995. By this stage, he had qualified as a chartered accountant. His first win on the European Tour was the Peugeot Open de Espana in 1996, on only the tenth start in his professional career.
Padraig's Harrington's international experience in the design of this redevelopment has resulted in a challenging Course for members and visitors alike.
A fully equipped Pro-Shop and a plentiful supply of buggies provide the novice and experienced golfer with all that is needed. The social and hospitable atmosphere in the bar and restaurant will complete a wonderful day.
“Stackstown is my Home, from Home. A great place to play golf.” Padraig Harrington
