Castlewarden is one of the best kept secrets in Leinster.

Located a short 10 minute drive from the Red Cow roundabout, this hidden gem is nestled in the plains of Kildare and is truly a gift of nature.

The 160 acres of mature pastureland was transformed into a magnificent par 72 - 6704 yards, 18 hole Parkland Golf Course.

Castlewarden opened as a members' owned Club in 1990. The original course development was undertaken by the well-known golf professional and course designer Tommy Halpin.

In 1993 Bobby Browne was commissioned for the second stage of development and undertook a redesign of the course. In 1995 the much acclaimed course architect, the late Tom Craddock gave his design recommendations for a long-term development plan. In 2008 the design services of Tommy Halpin were enlisted again to complete the final stage of the clubs' vision for this grand design.

The course has matured beautifully over the years and bears little resemblance to the original design. Many thousands of trees have been planted and today Castlewarden boasts an enviable selection of native and exotic trees. The members now enjoy a course of championship standard and it presents an interesting challenge for every level of golfer.

The house known as Castlewarden House pre-dates the 16th century. In 1941 the Harrington family sold the farm of 200 acres to the O’Malley family. The O'Malley's then lived there and enjoyed a thriving mixed farming family business until they sold 160 acres approx. to what is now home to Castlewarden Golf Club.

In 2003 the original house, which is listed as a national monument, was tastefully extended to include a new bar and restaurant with excellent views of the 1st and 3rd holes. Fully fitted ladies and gents locker rooms and professional golf shop now complete these modern Clubhouse facilities.
