Mount Juliet Estate
Mount Juliet Estate was the host of the 2002 WGC American Express Championship won by Tiger Woods. Two years later in 2004, Ernie Els would take the crown.
Mount Juliet has also hosted the Irish Open in 1993, 1994, 1995, and in 2021.

A little bit like the Ladies Putting Green at St Andrews, Mount Juliet has its own 18-hole Putting Course.

Mount Juliet Estate is in the running for the best parkland golf course in Ireland. Perhaps geared more toward deep-pocketed American visitors wanting for a taste of home than the locals, the course features five man-made lakes while the River Nore runs alongside the course.
