New Forest Golf Club is a truly spectacular course that is both a joy to the eye and a pleasure to play. Already recognized as one of the great Irish parkland golf courses, the undulating and natural forested surroundings bring an outstanding quality to the course, with some of the finest putting surfaces, tees and fairways in the country. The course is laid out over gently rolling terrain and is bounded by mature woodlands that give the property a very natural, traditional feel. Whilst only opened since the summer of 2006, the course offers a maturity of play only found on courses that have been around for decades. Located just an hour from Dublin, just off the M4, it is a perfect setting for an amazing golf course.

Golf is most enjoyable when played in a steady pace. Here at New Forest we recommend that ready golf is adopted. This form of play is the best way to avoid slow play and allow all golfers to enjoy their round.
‘Ready Golf’ means:
- Being ready to play, not playing when ready.
- The player with the Honour should be ready to play – If not then someone else should go first! (except in matchplay).
- Lost Balls – everyone should help out to find a lost ball but players should play their own ball first.
- On the fairway – walk to your ball as soon as possible and be ready to play as soon as it is your turn.
- Speed up play on the greens – get ready to putt before it’s your turn. Players should line up their putts while other players are putting so they are ready to putt when it’s your turn.
If each person in a 4 ball could just play 20 to 25 seconds quicker, then you will make up 25 to 30mins for each round Ready golf does not mean rushing. If you prepare in advance you can take your time & play ready golf
