Like other clubs of its vintage, the clubhouse facilities were small but in 2000, the clubhouse was completely rebuilt on the original site to provide the best facilities for the new Millennium.

 

Dungannon is also home to Northern Ireland’s Darren Clarke, the 2011 Open Champion and it was Darren, now an Honorary Life Member, who officially opened the new Clubhouse in June 2000.

 

The course is located in typical drumlin countryside with Dungannon town as a backdrop. The course reflects the different acquisition dates of the front and back holes, in that the front nine are reasonably flat whilst the back nine test the fitness and psyche of the average golfer. Fairways throughout are wide to let the ponds, bunkers and course structure challenge the player.

 

One of these new holes, the signature 9th par 3 “Darren Clarke”, features a narrow, ribbon-like crescent shaped green protected from the tee by a pond.
