Tulfarris Golf Course Reviews and Accolades
As Lead Tournament Director for the PGA Europro Tour it was my responsibility to work with Tulfarris to deliver a tournament to the demanding standards required for an event of that stature. In both planning and execution the team provided flawless delivery and were a pleasure to work with. The course itself is stunning in both quality and layout with views to match. Tulfarris is a fantastic addition to the Tour’s schedule and I am greatly looking forward to returning in 2020.

For me, Tulfarris was the number one stop on the Europro this year. It’s a true test of golfing ability rewarding good golf but punishing bad golf. The quality of the golf course was second to none and I can see it as a future European Tour stop. More importantly the service we as players received was outstanding and we were made to feel right at home. Will definitely be back to play this hidden gem in the near future.

I’ve recently been fortunate enough to play and stay at Tulfarris on the PGA EuroPro Tour and loved the experience. The course has a stunning setting and examines every part of a players game. I would recommend anyone to stay and play.

A glorious setting and great, great golf
Taken from 'HOOKED' - An amateur's guide to the golf courses of Ireland, by Kevin Markham
"Mark Twain once said that 'golf is a good walk spoiled'. Not here, it's not. There are some great courses in these parts, and Tulfarris is right up there with them. It is certainly the most scenic of them and the course has everything a golfer could wish for as it moves gracefully around Blessington Lakes. The lakes are always in view, becoming very prominent on the back nine, and the trees and mountains make it an an idyllic setting.
Every swing of the club is a pleasure...and at 6,745 yards you will be swinging a lot. There is a tough par 5/par3 start which illustrates perfectly how challenging and pretty this course is. There are more good holes to follow - the par three 6th is picture-perfect over a deep pond - but for me, the course really takes off at the 9th where you have to fade your drive around trees (something which is repeated on the 14th) as you hit towards the lakes. And from then on, the lakes are ever present. The last ten holes are spectacular, with mature trees crowding in on you at 10th, 12th, 13th and 14th, and, while the fairways remain gentle and generous, far more is demanded of your drives and accuracy. As a result, the hotels and your shots are more satisfying, nowhere more so than on the tricky dog-leg 17th and the wonderfully intimidating, water-laced 18th.
This is another course where playing to your handicap is tremendously rewarding."

There's something undeniably special about Tulfarris. Stand on the first tee beside Blessington's lovely lakes and you will be stunned by the beauty of this 18-hole championship course, designed by the late, great Patrick Merrigan. Read More…
