Established by Dublin City Council, Silloge Park originally opened as a 9-Hole Public Golf Course in 1984. An exciting major re-design took place in 1995 which extended the course to 18 holes and has seen the course flourish to become one of the most popular public golf courses in Ireland. Maintained by a dedicated Dublin City Council team of greenkeepers It provides golfers with an enjoyable, fair test of golf in a wonderful parkland setting, at exceptional value for money.
Big Challenge. A tricky opening drive with out of bounds all down the left. Accuracy is key for your second shot with trees and a lone bunker flanking the green.
Santry River. Our signature par 3 that plays uphill and across the Santry river. Make sure to club up as anything short will leave you with a hard up and down.
Mighty Monster. While this short Par 5 is reachable in two it has some tricks up its sleeve meaning that par or better is far from a given. A good drive to an undulating fairway will give you a chance to go for the raised green in two. Make sure not to go long!
Silloge Lane. Finding the fairway on the 4th will setup a short iron to a forgiving green. Make sure to stay away from the left-hand tree line.
The Barn. A strong par 5 that demands a good drive to a tree lined fairway. If you go off line take your medicine and play safely back to the fairway. A good birdie chance for the longer hitters. If playing as a three-shot hole watch out for the ditch when laying up.
Old Start. The original opening hole might play short but make sure to position your opening shot well on this slight dogleg to open up your approach shot to attack the pin. Out of bounds down a portion of the left-hand side and a lone bunker protect the green.
The Bowl. A short downhill par 3. Make sure to select your club carefully as missing the green can lead to a tricky up and down for par.
Christy’s Choice. A fantastic challenge, requiring a long accurate drive over the valley. An equally demanding second shot awaits with out of bounds down the left-hand side. A par here will feel like a birdie.
The Pitch. After the demands of the Christy’s Choice the 9th hole provides some relief and a definite birdie opportunity. Take dead aim and go for the pin.
Valley View. Another fantastic par four to start the back nine. The sloping tree lined fairway is tough to find and even if you do the undulating make for a challenging downhill second to a well-protected green.
Big Carry. A generous fairway lets you open the shoulders. Long and straight will lead to a straightforward approach to an inviting green.
Runway. Try not to be distracted by the planes taking off at Dublin Airport on this long straight par five. Three good shots are required to give the best chance of a birdie putt. Watch out for the fairway narrowing and ditch crossing and choose your strategy to suit your game.
Hooker’s Dread. A challenging par three for players of all level. A well protected green here with a bunker and as the name of the hole suggests, do not go left!
The Avenue. Heading back towards the club house the key to this hole is finding the right portion of the green. Protected by a bunker on the right-hand side the green slopes from back to front making it a tricky two putt.
Faders Fancy. A gentle downhill dogleg right where an accurate drive will open up a great view of the green for your second. A small tricky bunker protects the front left of the green waiting to catch those attacking a pin tucked on that side.
Long Haul. A narrow fairway and a small target on the approach means that accuracy is required to have the best chance of making par. Playing slightly uphill the second shot can play longer than it looks to a well-protected green flanked by bunkers.
Monkey Puzzle. Named after the tree that catches your eye while on the tee box this short par four is a great scoring opportunity. The puzzle for the player is whether to play conservatively from the tee or try to get as close to the green as possible.
Last Chance. A great finishing hole giving you a last chance to tee it high and let it fly. Make sure to stay on the right-hand side of the fairway as the trees on the left can block your approach. A fair green means that hitting it in two gives a great opportunity of a final birdie.
