The New course at Headfort Golf Club is a well-rated and pleasantly testing golf course. This tree-lined and open parkland layout should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy. Plenty of golfing challenge and usually good upkeep contribute to the appeal of this well-crafted design. One to include on your play list if you are in the area.
