Ireland is renowned all over the World as a wonderful golfing destination and famous for its friendly welcome. As part of Fáilte Ireland's commitment to driving competitiveness in the Irish golf industry, the 'Quality Assured' accreditation scheme under the National Standards Framework for Golf Clubs ensures that the Irish golf experience for visitors meets their expectations. Enniscorthy has committed itself to maintain and exceed the requirements of this accreditation. The standard also offers golf clubs a number of distinct advantages including free listings on the domestic and international Discover Ireland web sites under the 'Time to Play' promotion and access to key Fáilte Ireland business supports. The independent assessment of our amenities and services for visitors is an assurance to our visitors that they can expect first class facilities and enjoy a well maintained course when they visit us.
