The Heritage, a 72 Par Championship golf course, designed by Seve Ballesteros and Jeff Howes is set in the beautiful rolling countryside of Co. Laois, just one hour from Dublin, with the Slieve Bloom Mountains as a backdrop. This championship golf course provides the most enjoyable experience for golfers of all standards in Ireland.
"It was a course I would like to go out and play and come back in time and time again. The condition of it was second to none. There is nowhere around the world that could be better than it. It was a lot of fun and a great golf course. It is going to hold some beautiful golf tournaments, hopefully the Irish Open and few others." Seve Ballesteros
Five lakes and a stream meander through the course and brings water into play on 10 holes. 98 beautifully shaped bunkers and 7,000 trees adorn the landscape, which is very gently undulating without any climbing involved. A variety of tees allow the course to be played from 5,747 to 7,319 yards.
"This course is capable of holding an Irish Open straight away. It's in fantastic condition and the thing I really liked about it is we actuality enjoyed playing it. You can build a golf course, even a great one, and there's no fun to be had on it; this golf course is different. It's an enjoyable one where you can hit good shots and make birdies." Padraig Harrington

"When I arrived on the first tee, I thought, I wouldn't mind putting on this. I haven't seen such a well conditioned golf course and as the years go by, it will be capable of hosting any kind of tournament, the Ryder Cup, anything." Sam Torrance
