Carts on courses

Known as Buggies over here in Ireland.

They are not widely available and some courses require a letter from your doctor to say why you should be using one.

Advance booking of buggies is required as some courses have very few. Pull trolleys are available at all courses.


We can book caddies in advance for you but be advised that their availability is not guaranteed by the clubs.

Pull trolleys are available at all courses and sometimes members will forecaddie for a group also.

Caddies are paid in cash after your round. Average cost including tip is 50-60 euros per bag – more at your discretion.

Expect caddies to carry a double unless there is plenty available. See caddy request form for details.

All the courses also have excellent course guides/stroke savers/yardage books.


Try and bring proof of your handicap. Maximum handicaps of 24 for men and 36 for women are the norm at the courses in Ireland.

Generally you will not be expected to provide proof of handicap.
