Tullamore is a championship golf course located in a traditional parkland setting. It has many picturesque views, which are enhanced by clusters of mature oak, beech and chestnut trees with the Slieve Bloom Mountains in the background. It is rated among the top 30 parkland courses in Ireland in Backspin's 2012 Irish Golf Course Rankings.
The course is located at Brookfield since 1926 and in 1938 the Club invited James Braid, a 5 times British Open winner, to visit Tullamore to inspect the course and recommend what changes should be made to improve the overall standard of Brookfield. This was of significant benefit as Braid suggested 4 complete new holes among other changes which included a bunkering plan and a new 18th hole which was not completed until 1945. The bulk of the work on the course was carried out over a three year period. In the mid 1990's course architect, Patrick Merrigan was engaged to re-design the course. The result which was unveiled in the Centenary Year, 1996, is a magnificent course which combines the best of the James Braid design with three new lakes along with seven new greens, 11 new tees and 30 new bunkers. Drainage and irrigation were upgraded and 5,000 trees were planted to augment those mature oak, beech and chestnut threes that had been there for a century and more.
The 5th, 13th, 14th, 16th and 18th holes, in particular, provide the visitor with an unforgettable challenge and a course of championship standard to the discerning golfer.
