Golf Course Review

Concra Wood Golf and Country Club is located overlooking Lough Muckno near Castleblayney, County Monaghan near the border with Northern Ireland. From the course, you're given a view of Hope Castle, Black Island, Otter Island, Crane Island and White Island. On a good day, you can see the Monaghan Drumlins, Cooley, Mourne Mountains, Slieve Gullion and Mullyash Mountains.

Designed by Christy O'Connor Jr and Sr, it is a spectacularly beautiful area. The course was built in 2008 making use of the 240 acres that provide dramatic views of the Lough. The course lies on a headland with holes laid out to take advantage of the Lough side real estate. Unsurprisingly, water comes into play the majority of holes.

The topography is quite varied and the playing surfaces undulating. The ebb and flow of Concra Wood cleverly mimic the drumlins (small rolling hills) which characterise the immediate landscape.
