The Montgomerie Golf Course
Inspired by the greatest links lands of the world, The Montgomerie Golf Course pays tribute to the traditions of the game and sets a challenge like no other.
This is golf at its purest. This is adrenaline and shot-making at its best. Designed by Colin Montgomerie, it's a journey across sweeping fairways, cavernous bunkers and impeccable greens. It's an adventure from first to last and is proud to have hosted the worlds finest golfers at the 2005 and 2006 Irish Opens.
"In my design, I attempted to go back to a more traditional golf course. I looked at the great courses around the world - Royal Melbourne, Troon, Turnberry - and worked out what is so good about them. One thing that springs to mind - bunkering. They are hazards and they work with the prevailing wind. Few holes are straight up and down the wind but tend to be across, which brings the bunkering into play. This is the kind of course where the best players would always come out on top"
The O' Meara Course
GUI Cups & Shields Finals 2014
Designed by 1998 Open Champion and US Masters Champion Mark O'Meara, this classic parkland course might lull you with its beauty but is still full of challenge.
You'll find yourself skirting the banks of the river Rye then sending the ball soaring over its golden waters. And, when you cross the greens, it is as if your feet float on a thousand velvet kisses from beneath.
