In 1892 the first Athlone golf course was laid out on the undulating terrain of the Batteries, a raised area west of the Shannon. It was the ‘Athlone Garrison Golf Club’ and during the early years it was mainly British army officers and R.I.C. personnel who were members of this nine hole course.

This course was designed by Mr. J. McAllister and was officially opened on the 19th June 1938. The clubhouse, a pavilion style building, was situated beside the lake, close to the present sixteenth tee.

In 2003 a three year course redevelopment programme commenced under Mr. Eddie Connaughton, Course Design Ltd. The work was carried out by S.O.L. Golf Construction Ltd. The redesign and construction of sand-based greens to USGA standards, the introduction of water features and the construction of the new par 3 sixth hole have further enhanced Athlone Golf Club, a club which has hosted many provincial and national championships, including the All-Ireland Cups and Shields Finals in 1998.
