You could’ve bought a golf course in Ireland for $90,000


Love golf? Love Ireland? Then you, like me, just missed out on an incredible opportunity.

Woodlands Golf Club in Kildare, Ireland, sold at auction this week for a mere $90,000, according to the Irish Examiner. The club was sold at an auction of 150 mostly commercial properties in Dublin on Tuesday. The club is a little west of the Irish capital.

The 127-acre property includes an 18-hole golf course, a pitch-and-putt course and a full practice facility.

The Tony Halpin-designed course plays to a max length of 5,877 meters, with over 1,500 trees planted on the parkland course since 1999.
