The Academy

At Dromoland Castle

A state-of-the-art practice facility on Dromoland Castle’s magnificent estate, there’s no finer place to raise your game. Our Golf Academy offers Trackman, so you can take your game to the next level. Enjoy replicating historic shots or hone your game on a familiar shot with ‘On Course Practice’. Players of all abilities can practice and play on a wide variety of stunning virtual courses, which can be played in a fraction of the time it would take to play a full round. Or play a selection of fun games suitable for all ages - there’s something in Trackman for everyone.

The short game area includes two USGA specification greens with the same Penn A4/G6 Creeping Bent grass as used on the golf course: a 500 square metre Putting Green to hone the perfect stroke before you tackle Kirby’s greens on the course, and a 450 square metre Bunker and Chipping Green. The Bunker and Chipping Green offer a number of lies, slopes and grass lengths to practice from. In addition to a well-shaped, large greenside bunker, there is also a riveted face links style bunker, modelled on the famous ‘Road Hole’ bunker on the 17th at St Andrews.

Should your game require a little fine-tuning, why not book some expert tuition with the professionals at our School of Golf?
