Rathbane Golf Club

The public golf course at Rathbane, Limerick is due to get a remodel shortly, 18 new USGA Specification tees will be constructed, 25 new bunkers will be built, a new irrigation system is due to be installed and a new 9th hole (par 3) will be built with a challenging water feature.

Tenders are being sent out to a number of contractors at the moment and once the contractor has been decided upon it is expected that works will commence soon afterwards. This is a very exciting project to be a part of and we look forward to a new and improved Rathbane Course in the near future.
