Flyover - Hole by Hole

Hole 1

A gentle Par 5 to start your round with a slight dogleg from left to right. Out of bounds all along the right side but remember virtually the whole of Ireland is to the left side of this hole.

Hole 2

A long Par 4 with a straightforward tee shot. At the end of the 390 yard fairway the hole rises steeply some 35 feet to an elevated green. The second shot can be intimidating with danger to both sides of hill up to the green. Kindly sponsored by The Hot Coffee Company

Hole 3

A short Par 4 with an elevated tee shot over a quarry. A risk/reward hole that can be driven in the right wind conditions. A deep revetted bunker sitting across the fairway some 15 yards short of the green adds to the risk. Kindly sponsored by BM Motors Newtownards.

Hole 4

A mid-length Par 3 guarded on 3 sides by more of James Braid’s bunkers. With the quarry over the back of the green a precise tee shot is required to have much hope of making your par. Kindly sponsored by Murdock Builder's Merchants,

Hole 5

A long dog-leg Par 4. A very good tee shot is needed to hold this fairway and give you an opportunity to make the green in two. Kindly sponsored by Toals Bookmakers,

Hole 6

The reverse of the 5th hole but slightly longer and with a fairway sloping from left to right. A tee shot straight up the middle can readily finish in the links rough to the right and a blind second shot to a green guarded by a deep bunker left and that quarry again to the right. Kindly sponsored by GS Stothers Mechanical & Electrical Engineering.

Hole 7

A short Par 4 that is driveable for the big hitters again depending on the wind. However, this will be a totally blind tee shot and if the ball does not finish in the vicinity of the green you may not find it. Kindly sponsored by Coulter Construction 07720 521 799.

Hole 8

A Par 3 with a semi-blind tee shot to an elevated green guarded by two deep bunkers at the front and gorse over the back. Kindly sponsored by Echlinville Distillery.

Hole 9

This Par 4 will bring you back to the Clubhouse. A good tee shot is needed to find this fairway and hopefully leave a relative short iron to a very well protected green. Only a precise second shot will have a chance of staying on the green. Kindly sponsored by Northridge Finance.

Hole 10

The signature hole on the course has recently been lengthened and updated to a challenging but fair Par 5. With gorse and out of bounds all along the left, new bunkering on the right and a small pulpit green sitting some 30 feet above the level of the fairway guarded by gorse, whitethorn and links rough you start to get the picture. Downwind birdie is on but if the wind is in your face you'll be delighted with par. Kindly sponsored by John Dynes & Son Builders.

Hole 11

The shortest hole on the course but don’t be fooled by this. The green is cut into the hillside and can prove difficult to hold.

Hole 12

A superb golf hole. An elevated tee shot down into the valley followed by a long second shot to an elevated green bring you back up to the same level as the Tee Box now some 440 yards behind you. Kindly sponsored by SR Fire & Security.

Hole 13

Another difficult Par 4 requiring both length and accuracy from the tee. The well guarded green can be hard to hold especially in summer conditions. Kindly sponsored by O'Prey Developments.

Hole 14

A flat Par 3 for a change. The tee shot is semi-blind due to a bunker across the front of the green although 20 yards short of it. Kindly sponsored by Bailie Property.

Hole 15

A very picturesque hole and one of Fred Daly’s favourite holes in Ireland. There are lots of options how to play this hole dictated by the wind conditions. Kindly sponsored by Courtney & Nelson.

Hole 16

Another splendid Par 3 with a semi-blind tee shot to another of our elevated greens. This green slopes severely from top to bottom to add to the challenge.

Hole 17

A cracking Par 4 with out of bounds all along the left. Finding the fairway is a must to give yourself the opportunity of reaching the green with your second shot.

Hole 18

Now you can relax with a Par 5 to finish. Miss all the bunkers and give yourself an opportunity to finish with a birdie and go home happy.
