Course Record

The course underwent a major upgrade and re-design over the years 1997 to 1999. On the 8th July 2003 RORY McILROY then aged 14 and playing off scratch set a new course record while playing in the Connacht Boys Championships with a 4 under par score of 66. We are all delighted that Rory went on to set many more records in the world of golf.
