The Golf Course
Constructed in the 1930’s, Duntryleague’s Championship Golf Course has stood the test of time. Built in what would be described as a “botanical gardens” setting with over 130 varieties of trees, the course if short by modern standards but remains a stern test for golfers of all levels.
Duntryleague is a thoroughly challenging and enjoyable experience to remember for golfers of all skill levels, with a par of 70 and an ACR of 71.
I played 18 holes there recently and what an absolutely magnificent championship golf course. The course layout is excellent with some very challenging holes. The fairways were imaculate and the ball sat up just waiting to be hit.
The greens were undulating and fast and as good if not better than the sand belt courses in Melbourne.
This is one course that you MUST put on your list too play.
I would strongly recommend a golfing trip to Orange and staying at the Heritage listed Clubhouse. They offer many golf packages and you can Follow the link for Golf Packages Available.

The Clubhouse and Guesthouse
Duntryleague provides groups a wealth of options when it comes to pre- or post- tournament facilities. The Clubhouse boasts a fully serviced bar and Brasserie and outdoor patio with a fabulous view across Orange.
The heritage listed Guesthouse, previously the family mansion of the Dalton Family, offers a number of elegant function rooms and 13 accommodation rooms.
In 1836, a grant of 640 acres of land, known as "Campdale" was made to William Ealy Simpson for which he paid 160 pounds. In 1849, James Dalton moved to Orange having previously owned and operated a small store in the nearby village of Lucknow.
He later went on to establish a number of flour mills in Orange in partnership with his brother Thomas, and later, his half-brother Michael. Over the years, the Daltons acquired substantial land holdings in and around the Orange district. James Dalton purchased the property and built the house where it stands today in 1876.
The name Duntryleague was taken from his birthplace near Galbally in County Limerick and means "The Fort of the Three Pillar Stones". It refers to the burial of King Cormack, who was the King of Munster in the 11th century. The original spelling of Duntryleague was Doon-tri-liag.
The house was built over three levels from bricks made on the property and features a magnificent stairway, wrought iron lace embellishments and iron lace portico.
The pride of the building is a stained glass window which features in the stairway and was a gift to James Dalton upon his investiture as a Papal Knight in recognition of his services to the Catholic Church.
The window had been presented to Dalton by Pope Gregory and carries his papal crest and motto, "Inter Cruces Triumphans in Cruces"
