All new members will then be issued with a GUI Handicap card which must be used when entering all club competitions throughout their respective playing careers.

It is also the responsibility of all new members to inform the club if they have ever been at any time or still are a member of any other Golf Club or Golfing Society and what handicap they held.

Failure of a new member to disclose this required information shall result in automatic refusal of the application, or if they have been accepted as a member, automatic dismissal from membership of the Club.

Get on course for a golf feast… Loughgall Country Park and Golf Course has been designed to provide all golfers with a test of skill and composure.

And what golfer could ask for more? A course that both challenges and teases offers a credible examination of concentration and confidence. Certainly, the front nine holes of this eye-catching par 72 creation will surely ask some pertinent questions of golfers irrespective of their handicap. The 3547 yards to be covered incorporate the mischievous par 3 5 th hole at 223 yards and the testing par 5 9 th at 614 yards.

The shorter back nine presents an opportunity to perhaps restore lost ground by picking up shots with short par fours but watch out for the tricky 17th – don’t say you haven’t been warned! With water hazards, bunkers and some cleverly-placed sloping areas, the course is meant to bring out the best in those using it. The fairways, although generous, still ensure that those guilty of errant shots will pay a penalty whereas smart club selection and strategic play will be rewarded with better scores.

The greens have been constructed to USGA (sand based) specification and with an average size of 700m sq some lengthy putts are usually the order of the day. Overall, if your goal is a golfing challenge in appealing surroundings at a reasonable price, then you will have found it at Loughgall Country Park .
