The Club and Junior Convenors would like to thank all of the volunteers who gave up their time on Tuesday evenings over the summer months to help out with Junior Golf. Your contribution was a huge reason behind the success of our Junior program this year and wee look forward to your continued help in the future.

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.

We need your help to make this and future phases of the project a success. You can help by supporting the 50/50 draw either by buying a ticket for each draw or signing up for a monthly direct debit which will ensure you are entered into every draw. Envelopes and direct debit forms are available from the bar, golf shop and office.
