Meath - Proud to have hosted The 2011 Solheim Cup
From the challenging parklands at Headfort, Royal Tara and Co. Meath Golf Club to the historic old links at Laytown & Bettystown, golfers of all ages and standards will find a course to suit their game. Add in the well established old favourites at Black Bush, Ashbourne, Navan & Kilcock - together with more recent gems such as Killeen Castle, Knightsbrook, Rathcore, Julianstown and Bellewstown - and there is enough variety to whet any golfer's appetite to stay & play in County Meath.
The hosting of The 2011 Solheim Cup at the magnificent Jack Nicklaus designed championship course at Killeen Castle and the PING Junior Solheim Cup at Knightsbrook only enhanced Meath's reputation as a great place to play golf and explore some of the Boyne Valley's wonderful heritage.
Meath offers quality and value to the visiting golfer and you will be assured of a warm Irish welcome wherever you go. You will find accommodation to match the great golf courses with a selection of fine hotels, guest houses and self catering, all within easy each of every course in the county.Des Smyth is one of our most reverered golfers and knows a thing or two about Meath golf courses...
''I enjoyed over 30 years on the European Tour, the Seniors Tour in Europe and the United States and played in two Ryder Cups. I can honestly say the quality and variety of courses in Meath is on a par with anywhere I have been. It's all here, from courses to suit the big hitting young guns to the more leisurely players, golfers of all ages and abilities will find a course that will suit their game. The hosting of the 2011 Solheim Cup has announced Meath's arrival as a world class golf destination and I know that everyone will enjoy their golf in Meath and will look forward to coming back for another visit''.
