The 17th at Black Bush Golf Club in Co Meath.

 

Golf club membership in Ireland saw a large increase in 2020 as people safely took to the fairways during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Now, with golf courses around the country closed again, membership is more important than ever. After inviting clubs to send in details of their membership offers, The Irish Times has compiled a list of deals from around the country.

The list will be updated and if you would like your golf club added please email details to rcroke@irishtimes.com.
