Overview

Galway Bay Golf Resort sports an 18 hole Christy O'Connor Jr golf course 9 miles from Galway overlooking Galway Bay. The course sits on a former farm near Oranmore in County County, Ireland.

Pitched and priced at overseas visitors who often equate price with quality, it is a busy course which gives deep-pocketed visitors a taste of home.

Water is a major feature with the course and is surrounded by the Wild Atlantic Way on three sides!
