Leitrim farmland, providing panoramic views of Sliabh an Iarainn (Iron Mountain). The course is bordered on three sides by the Ballinamore – Ballyconnell Canal and the steady passage of boats along the canal makes the course a pleasure to play. The Club was founded in 1934 and in 1996 Dr. Arthur Spring re-designed the course which was officially opened on June 26th 2004. It has established itself as one of the finest 9 hole golf courses in the region.
