Description

Ronan Rafferty and his caddie go and play in Fintona Golf Club. The club was founded in 1904 and includes a fine parkland 9-hole course. Situated about halfway between two of Ulster’s natural landmarks, the Sperrins and Lough Erne, the golf club conveniently lies at the edge of the small village of Fintona. The current village is developed from an Uí Néill fortress built in 1431 and is believed to be one of Tyrone's oldest settlements. 


The region is known for its natural beauty and a game on this slick nine-hole course is the way to do it. Many of the holes have different tees the second time round allowing players a different challenge and makes the game more interesting. Ronan’s caddie advises on what equipment to bring including a full set of waterproofs and a lucky charm.
