Lough Erne Resort “IGTOA 2010 Golf Resort of The Year” (Ireland Golf Tour Operator Association) is home to two Championship Golf Courses – The Faldo Course and Castle Hume Golf Course.
The Faldo Championship Course (7,167 yards Par 72)
Designed by Six time Major winner Nick Faldo, Lough Erne is Faldo’s first golf course design in Ireland. Set on a 600 acre peninsula between Castle Hume Lough and Lower Lough Erne, The Faldo Course has been planned carefully to take full advantage of the natural topography. This makes for fourteen holes where the waters of the Loughs come into play, including a green surrounded on three sides by water. Superb All Year Round Playing Conditions, ensuring a spectacular, challenging and exciting golfing experience. In terms of beauty and enjoyment, there are few courses that can rival The Faldo Championship Course at Lough Erne Golf Resort in Co Fermanagh, in North West Ireland where the 15th Faldo Series Grand Final was played in 2011. No one would disagree with Faldo who calls it; “one of Europe’s – indeed the world’s – most visually stunning golf courses.”It is visually strong with striking features and risk-reward holes which inspires golfers and ensures they never tire of facing the varying challenges it offers”. It is tough but fair and a golf course which forces players to think their way around and not just blast it off every tee.
