Delgany Golf Club is one of the few remaining members-owned golf clubs in County Wicklow – and it’s also one of the oldest members-owned clubs in the country, having been established in 1908.
The Ryder Cup came to Ireland for the first time in 2006 and Delgany Golf Club has some strong connections with this famous event. It is the only golf club in the world to have produced four Ryder Cup players in Harry Bradshaw, Jimmy Martin, John O’Leary and Eamonn Darcy. The strong Bradshaw family connection continues to the present day. Furthermore, Eamonn Darcy is a grand-nephew of Patrick J. Doyle, the first golf professional in Delgany Golf Club who subsequently became a well-known tournament and teaching professional in America.

Following an investment of almost €6 million by the members in 2003 to 2006, Delgany Golf Club now has a remodelled golf course with sand-based greens and tees to USGA specifications. The remodelled course was designed by the well-known Irish golf course architect, Patrick Merrigan.
