Course Description
Course Description:

This new 18-hole course is a heathland - seaside course featuring holes running across the top of low cliffs with the sound of the waves always near. Designed by Peter McEvoy, the former Britain and Ireland Walker Cup captain, it is to his credit that, in this day and age of ever-longer designs, he has produced a course that requires virtually every club in the bag to be used. "The very first hole I saw when I visited the site," is McEvoy's comment on the third, another short par four measuring 320 yards. It is framed by mature woodland with a pond and a stream adding to the natural appeal. Once on the green, it is possible to hear the sound of water tinkling close by, while the fourth is the first par three to a well contoured green surrounded by trees. That short hole ends the parkland feel, and from the fifth hole there is a change to a heathland texture. This stretch features what is probably the toughest hole on the course, the 460-yards par four sixth hole. Off the back tee, the drive must carry a lake and thread itself between fairway bunkers and the out-of-bounds on the left. For the second shot, a tree that dominates the middle of the fairway becomes an added factor.

After the heathland segment comes the seaside holes, with the sound of the water crashing against the cliffs serving as an acoustic accompaniment on several holes. There are two magnificent short holes on the back nine, the 11th - measuring 180 yards, although it seems longer from the tee-box that is perched just yards from the cliff top - and the 16th, which measures 202 yards. This hole is played into the backdrop of the Irish Sea but it is the water in front of the green that is the danger. The 17th hole runs back up along the cliffs and shares a double green with the 11th, while the 18th is, in some ways, similar to the final hole at Druids Glen in that it has man-made weirs running down one part of the fairway and in front of the greens and it is also an uphill par four.

Club History

The concept of businessman David Cullen and his brother Stephen, the course opened in 2002. It has hosted a yearly pro-am event which in 2002 attracted Justin Rose, Paul Lawrie and Trevor Immelman. The year previous featured Padraig Harrington, Reteif Goosen and Barry Lane. It is hoped this successful event will continue for many years to come. In 2003 the fabulous new club House was opened, ensuring members and visitors and super 19th Hole.
