|Type of Course||Parkland|
|Number of Holes||18|
This Parkland designed course which measures 6,443 yards from the back tees, plays much like a links course. The entire course has been designed and built to USGA specifications with sand based greens and tees. Course Designer Peter McEvoy's concept was to build a course to provide golfing conditions and aesthetics to delight.
Among its features is a five-tier double green which is shared by the 8th and 10th holes. Yet sandwiched in between, is a quite lovely par five - the 9th, which measures 500 yards off the back, and although index 18 brings it's fair share of heartbreaks as well as delight. Peter McEvoy whose successes include Powerscourt and Rathsallagh amongst others, believes he has constructed 'probably the best set of par 3's ever'.
Golfers of all levels will find the course a challenge with its natural slopes and valleys combined with McEvoy's trademark undulating greens and some 90 bunkers. With truly magnificent panoramic views of the Wicklow Mountains and the Irish Sea, McEvoy claimed, 'the views made this site a designer's dream.'
