History of the Club

Foxrock Golf Club is one of the longest established golf clubs in Ireland. Located in the quiet suburb of Foxrock village in Dublin, and in 2018 we celebrated our 125th year in existence.

Our 9-hole course course was originally laid out in 1893 by a well known golf professional Brown and was redesigned in 1914 by golf architect Harry Shapland Colt.

Colt advocated moving away from the traditional links courses and instead went for heathland and parkland locations. As a result, our elegant clubhouse, set on tranquil grounds, offers a haven to the members where they can relax afterwards in a house full of history and grace.

We recently developed a new Short Game Academy area and installed new bunkers on the third and fourth holes to complement the existing mid iron practice area. Innovation and progression are important to us – we want to provide a top-class facility for both our current and future members.

Keep up to date with developments, events and news about the Club in our Latest News section. Read more here about membership at Foxrock or corporate bookings. Book tee times or check out our Golf Events Calendar.

We have also included a short history appendix on the notable events and personalities in our club over the last 125 years, we hope you enjoy this section.
