St. Margaret’s Golf & Country Club, located in North Co. Dublin, announces it will invest €1m in the club over the next five years. The investment is set to enhance the quality and standards across all areas of the golf club including significant changes and improvements both on and off course. In addition, the return of a joining fee will increase membership value for its loyal members.

Since its inception in 1992, St. Margaret’s Golf & Country Club has played host to many high-profile events including the Ladies Irish Open, the Senior Irish Open and the Irish PGA Championship. Steeped in history, the club has long been associated with quality. Built by world-class golf course designers Pat Ruddy and Tom Craddock, the course design and conditioning is second to none.

Under the management of Synergy Golf, the club’s motto has been to always improve and over the past six years this has been evident with the clubhouse and golf course all undergoing significant makeovers. Since the end of 2014, over €1.2m has been invested leading to improvements in every aspect of the facility. Now a further €1m is planned over the next five years with the club outlining its ambitious plans to continue its pursuit of excellence to members last week. Quality always awaits members and guests at the club, but these enhancements take it a further step forward to its overall goals.

“At St. Margaret’s, we pride ourselves on offering quality and consistency to our members and their guests. Year after year we continue to improve our facilities on and off the golf course. As we enter 2021, we renew our focus, and we are delighted to announce significant investment in the golf club over the next few years. Throughout next year the evolution and refinement of our membership experience will become very evident to all our members and they can look forward to significant improvements on and off course, some of which have already been completed. The coming years are set to be very exciting for the members of St. Margaret’s, we have major plans in the pipeline and the re-introduction of the club’s joining fee outlines the true value on offer at our fantastic golf club. Members are already embracing these exciting announcements and the visual changes around the golf club. They are excited to enter this new chapter and create their own piece of St. Margaret’s history.” Says Andy Kenny, Director of Synergy Golf and General Manager, St. Margaret’s Golf & Country Club.
