In 1920 Knock moved to its current location at ‘Summerfield’, close to the village of Dundonald. The top-ranked firm of golf course architects, ‘Colt, MacKenzie and Allison’, was hired to design the course yousee today.
Knock contains design features that relate to all three of these great course architects, who in their respective careers left such an indelible mark on the world of golf.
Knock Golf Club is a great test of golf, suitable for all levels of golfer and accomplished players and has developed into one of Ireland’s finest inland courses - the par of 70 is reputed to rank among the toughest in the country.
Tree-lined fairways, a proliferation of bunkers and well-manicured greens add up to an exceptional challenge. “The course gets off to a delightful start with a right hand dogleg which culminates to a deceptively sloping leftto right downhill green. Another first nine favourite is the testing sixth, a par 4 of more than 450 yards.”
