It is my great pleasure to welcome you and all our visitors and guests to Malahide Golf Club.
While our club dates back to 1892, we are only 23 years at our present location having moved from a 9 hole course to a 27 hole facility.
The history of Malahide Golf Club is filled with glorious achievements. Founded by one of Ireland’s foremost painters, Nathaniel Hone, its survival and enlargement to what we now have is a tribute to those who have managed our affairs over the years.
Our golfers have brought the club to prominence many times. Our two outstanding players, Tom Craddock and Philip Walton, were Walker Cup players. Philip also represented Europe on the successful Ryder Cup team in 1995. Both Tom and Philip also earned international caps as did Paddy Caul, Raymond Kane and in the distant past Francis Jameson. Mick Craddock captained the Irish team. We can boast of Irish Amateur Close Champions in 1910, 1959, 1971 and 1982, and the Irish Amateur Open Champion in 1958.
Needless to say the dreams of golfing glory of most of our members is modest, but their playing of the game of golf and their participation in the club’s activities contribute much to the creation of this great sporting club of which we are very proud.
I believe you will find we live by our club motto, “a light heart and cheerful spirit” and we certainly hope you will enjoy the hospitality and friendliness of our members and staff when visiting our club.
