Located just a few miles form the Curragh Racecourse, Dunmurry Springs offers a classic yet contemporary, challenging and therapeutic golfing experience. Dunmurry Springs is becoming renowned as a ‘Real Golfers Golf Course’. The prestigious US Golfer Magazine voted this course one of the 10 Best New courses in Europe in 2005.
The layout of the course is such that it brings the golfer through a series of tests. Skill, tactics, and bravery reward those that give the course the respect it deserves. Every hole has its own dangers but with skill they are playable by all abilities. Multiple tee positions facilitate all categories of golfer, with the championship tee positions demanding exceptional strategic shot making. It is difficult to pick out a signature hole as so many have merit, but watch out for the lake fronted 3rd, the dog-leg par-5 6th, the links-like 8th and monster 10th. Also enjoy the watery splendours of the knee-trembling 11th and 15th.
The views of the seven surrounding counties are most impressive out by Dunmurry Springs’ own Amen Corner of the 6th 7th & 8th. Designer Mel Flanagan has provided a dramatic but playable challenge while using the courses’ superb surroundings to tease all levels of golfer.
