Strandhill Golf Club was founded in 1931 as a nine-hole links golf course.

Shortly after the links was opened, a green tin shed was acquired as a clubhouse, which was situated near the present seventh green along the Strandhill beach front.

The present 18-hole course was opened in 1973 (subsequently redesigned with the imput of several members) as also was the new modern clubhouse, most of which was incorporated into the new building which was unveiled in 1997. In addition, the club had much to celebrate in 2007 when 17-year-old Tommy McGowan was selected for the Irish Youths team which participated in the annual representative match with Wales.

Tommy earned his first Irish cap on the back of an incredible performance in the West of Ireland championship that Easter, when he reached the semi-finals.
