Course Record

On the 8th of July 2003,Rory McIlroy, then aged 14 years and playing off scratch broke the course record while playing in the Connacht Boys Championship with a score of 67. We are all very happy to see that Rory went to create many more records in the world of Golf. We would also be happy to see him coming back to challenge the course which has been changed quite a bit since he set that marvellous score at a very tender age.
In the meantime, Eoin O Connor, plaing off 4 set a new course record of 67 for the revamped layout.
