Faldo’s first Irish creation near Enniskillen presents a real mix of golfing styles as it wends its way round Castle Hume Lough and Lower Lough Erne. Holes vary from pine-lined and heathland to a hint of the links on the par-5 6th. Water comes into play often, most memorably on the short par-4 10th with its semi-island green.

Panellists’ comments: “Ireland’s answer to Loch Lomond”; “A beautiful and very fair test” “A stunning course in a magnificent setting”;
