Golf at Sandy Lane dates back to 1961 when its first 18-hole course opened. The remains of this layout are now found in the resort's nine-hole "Old Nine". The resort took a huge leap forward in the late-1990s, when new Irish owners J.P. McManus, Dermot Desmond and John Magnier commissioned golf course architect Tom Fazio to design the Country Club course (2002) and Green Monkey course (2005).
