The clubhouse was opened in 2003 by the then Captain Noel Malone accompanied by The President of the Golfing Union of Ireland Michael O’Donoghue and Ita Butler, The President of The Irish Ladies Golfing Union.
Ardee Golf Club’s objective was to create a contemporary facility that would serve the needs of members and visitors by providing a modern, comfortable and welcoming environment to complement its well established and high quality golf course.
Entering through the main door you are greeted with a combination of the historical aspects of the club in the form of the pictures of former Captains and Presidents and the winning pennants and cups. However it is the portraits at the top of the elegant stairway of Peter McDonnell, Fr Shane Cullen and Paddy Taaffe that draw your attention. These portraits by renowned artist Padraig Lynch were commissioned by their friends to honour their considerable contribution to the success of Ardee Golf Club.
The ground floor houses the Professional Shop which is one of the best stocked golf shops in the region. Resident Golf professional Scott Kirkpatrick who has been providing the service for over a decade ensures his shop serves the demands of the members and visitors alike with a broad range of equipment and clothing from all of the major brands on display.
On entering the locker rooms you are greeted with a spacious, well kept changing areas and showering facilities. The design of the locker rooms is intended to provide comfort and dignity at the end of your game of golf.
Located on the first floor is the lounge and restaurant. The first storey sets up views primarily to the golf course through large glass windows and an expansive balcony with a spacious patio. The doors to the balcony open up to a view of the 18th green and accompanied with a view of the clubhouse garden below it leaves you in an area where after dinner drinks should be enjoyed in the Summer.
The restaurant, under the service provider of Edmund and Breige Mathews, is a comfortable eating and drinking establishment. Historical documents and pictures are on display around the walls and two large screen televisions in the lounge are available for all sporting events. The mix of good food and relaxed atmosphere makes the restaurant a perfect place to share with your friends your Ardee Golf experience.
Today the clubhouse provides a wide variety of options for members and community events, dining and social activities.
