Headfort has two very different but excellent parkland courses. The New course opened in 2001, spread across a swathe of the old Headfort Estate. It is home to majestic trees, bountiful water features and two islands which are at the heart of the course. Holes fit elegantly into the undulating landscape and despite its length (6,164m middle tees) every shot is enjoyable. Big (and straight) hitters will love it. The par threes are exceptional.
The natural water features are, not surprisingly, a constant highlight, appearing in one shape or another on the opening 10 holes, as well as three more. Holes 9 and 10 demand big drives over a lake, so finding land is a victory. A couple of pretty walks to and from tees only adds to the feeling that this course has been here a long time. The two islands are home to a special Asiatic tree collection. Remember that as you try to tackle the heavy woodlands.
Favourite Hole: the par four 10th drives over a wide swathe of water onto one of the tree-drenched islands. A long bridge takes you to a fairway which then doglegs sharply right.
What's in the Bag? Accurate driving to open up the best route to the greens.
