Old Tom Morris Links
The architects of the original course around the turn 20th century were golfing heroes and Open winners Old Tom Morris, James Braid, Harry Vardon and later H.S. Colt. The Old Tom Morris Links was initially developed and made famous by the St Andrews golfer and course designer who is well known as the father of modern day greenkeeping. The holes he originally created remain to this day.
Sandy Hills Links
Sandy Hills has regularly been referred to as one of Ireland’s toughest and most spectacular golfing experiences. Even on a calm day, when the wind is a little more forgiving, the dense rough, tossing fairways and testing greens will challenge the most polished of players. The course cuts through the dunes and is designed to showcase the rugged and unspoilt coastal magnificence to golfers who enjoy the many high tees and greens.
St Patrick’s Links
St Patrick’s Golf links was described by the head of Nicklaus Design - which began work to redesign the course in 2006 – as “absolutely an incredible site".
Nicklaus, who is for many greatest golfer ever - having won 18 Major Championship titles – was commissioned along with his design team to begin work in November 2006, however work ceased in December. The first of the two courses, Maheramagorgan, was completed over 14 years and opened in 1996. The Trá Mór course was designed by former Royal County Down assistant professional Joanne O'Haire.
