Playing the Course
Founded in 1894 and redesigned by Willie Park Jnr in the 1920’s this championship links course received its greatest makeover with the purchase of land known as “Thistly Hollow” in 1981.
The outstanding Championship Strand Course was the host for the 2017 Dubai Duty Free Irish Open. Jon Rahm, the 2017 winner was certainly impressed: ‘the golf course is amazing. It’s probably one of the most beautiful golf courses I have ever seen, If not the most’.
What can be said of the mighty Strand Course? Dubbed as the ‘sleeping giant’ do you dare to tackle it? It’s without doubt one of the very top true links courses in Ireland. It easily stands alongside the two Ulster Royals , Portrush and County Down. The brainchild of Willie Park Jr and Des Giffin, ably assisted bu undulating dunes, the run of bunkers, rolling fairways and tricky manicured greens.
