The best-known hole is the fourth, called the Leg o'Mutton, a 200 yard par-3 with a railway line to the right, a burn to the left and a raised green. Additionally the 9 hole Bann course has widened the appeal of the Club and contains a par-5 which has been described as "one of the most scenic holes in Irish golf.
The course record of 64 is held by Ryder Cup star Paul McGinley who said "the greens out there were as good as if not better than the ones we played on at the Open at Royal Lytham." And when asked what he thought of the course in one word, Christy O’Connor Snr. simply stated "great links golf!"
