CLUB HISTORY
Open since May 2006, Dunmurry Springs Golf Club is becoming recognised as a must play golf course. Few courses match Dunmurry Springs’ uplifting overall feel, with its intriguing variety of holes, its expansive views and attentive customer service. The course is a classic piece of golf architecture for those who appreciate the romance of the game.

Its stunning vistas are most invigorating out by Dunmurry Springs’ own Amen Corner of the 6th 7th & 8th. Designer Mel Flanagan has provided a dramatic but playable challenge. The hazards are just that, with the bunkering for once a true test and the waters that grace several holes tormenting to the timid. With manicured fairways, tees and greens, your golf experience is further enhanced by the warm welcome and exceptional service for which the club is becoming renowned.

Voted one of the Top 10 Best New European Golf Courses 2005 by prestigous US magazine ‘The Golfer’, received a Silver Award by HSBC Golf Monthly regional rankings in 06 & included in the Peugeot Golf Guide 2008/09 as one of the 1,000 Best Courses in Europe.

The designer said of Dunmurry Springs It is challenging, but it’s fair… It’s a real golfers course.


GOLF CLUB REVIEWS

15/08/2009 - Sent by CHARLIE MCGROGER
  This is a great golf course. The sixth hole is a short risk reward par five. Makes a change from usual slog par fives. The golf course rewards golfers who play clever more than the grip it and rip brigade. This can be a culture shock for some.
The thirteenth hole is a great par five. The seventh is a great par three. The eighteenth is one of the best finishing holes. It is the nearest thing to an inland links golf course. Well worth a visit.

  Beautifully maintained course, very friendly people running it, but some very poorly designed holes. The 6th stands out for me as possibly the biggest mickey mouse hole in the country. A reasonably short par 5, it has no fairway with OB all the way down the right and an almost obtuse dogleg. Bail out left and you're in fescue grass up to your neck. Hit it straight and you're left with a completely blind lay up, hitting across the fairway with no idea where to aim and more fescue encroaching onto the fairway. And thats assuming someone hasn't hit your ball first, as it runs opposite the severly difficult 8th. Three of my friends and I all lost at least one ball on this hole and none of us felt as if we'd missed a shot. The highest handicap amongst us was 6.
The course has far too many blind tee shots in my opinion. Depending on how far you hit it, the 2nd, the 5th, the 8th, the 12th, and the 14th will all leave you having to hope your ball is ok instead of knowing. Having said that, there are some great holes out there, particularly the 3rd, the 6th and the 18th. The drainage is the best I've seen anywhere, the fairways are like links, and the greens are beautiful. Its still maturing, and has onvious potential as a golf course,but Dunmurry Springs remains very much a case of taking the good with the bad design.

OTHER INFORMATION
Dunmurry Springs is one of Ireland’s most exciting and original new golf projects in recent years. Born out of a passion to utilise a very special site beside The Curragh, Mel Flanagan and his team have gone about crafting a classic piece of golf architecture in the mould of the great romantic courses like Sunningdale and Gleneagles, but with a distinctly Irish blend.

Golfers of all abilities will admire the cunning with which he achieved his aim, as this is clearly a course that combines traditional design philosophies utilising the natural springs, movement and grasses of the land with some of the most spectacular views in Ireland. The result is a unique experience blending time-honoured golfing values with a contemporary service culture.

Clubhouse facilities expect to be open before the end of 2008.
