Strandhill Golf Club Course Development

Phase one of the course redevelopment will commence early next year in February. This phase of the project will see the restructuring of the bunkers which will aesthetically and strategically enhance the course while also reducing course costs. This will involve the re-shaping of some of the bunkers and the re-positioning of others. It will also involve the filling in of bunkers that are superflous. The work is being financed from funds raised through the 50/50 draw and from course fundraisers held throughout the year.

The work will be carried out by golf course architect, Ally McIntosh and will include the lengthening of existing holes, the addition of new holes and the re-sequencing of the current holes.

The extension of the current fourth hole and the addition of the proposed new par three are both subject to planning permission being approved.
