Course Care


The course was re-designed in the mid 1990's by course architect, Patrick Merrigan. The result is a magnificent course which combines the best of James Braid's design.

The 5th, 13th, 16th and 18th holes, in particular, provide golfers with an unforgettable challenge.

Please repair pitch marks on greens, replace divots and rake bunkers. Thank You.

 

Pitch Mark Repair

The greens of Tullamore Golf Club are regarded as some of the finest in the country and in order to keep them in top condition it is essential that pitch marks be repaired as soon as possible. You may repair any pitch marks on the green before putting including your own.

Right Way

  1. Discard the loose piece of turf taken out by the ball
  2. Insert repair tool just outside the back of the ball mark
  3. Pull the turf towards the centre of the hole
  4. Gently tap the repaired area with your putter
  5. This action stretches undamaged turf over the ball mark, providing instant recovery

Wrong Way

  1. Do not replace the loose piece of turf taken out by the ball. It will die and delay the healing process.
  2. Do not pry up the centre of the depression with the repair tool as it exposes the soil and will delay the healing process
  3. Do not insert repair tool and twist it. This only breaks more turf loose.
