This project was a complete renovation of all 18 holes over a period of five winters between 2003 and 2008. The work included 16 new greens, some close to their existing locations and some in completely new locations. All 18 tee complexes and bunkers were renovated in a similar vein to the green complexes.

The initial brief was to recommend measures to solve their 1st hole safety problems and recommend uses for land between the 15th, 16th and 17th holes. However I realised the huge potential of the golf course and developed a masterplan for its renovation and updating of all 18 holes.

My role involved yearly presentations to the member at EGMs, detailed designs, site reports, tenders, construction management and weekly supervision visits during construction.

Following the work the course moved from outside the top 100 ranked courses in Ireland to its current position of 33.
