Douglas Golf Course is one of only a select number of golf courses in the world designed by Dr Alexander (Alister) MacKenzie, architect of some of the world’s most challenging courses, among which are the Augusta National in Atlanta, Georgia and Australia’s Royal Melbourne.
For a good day’s golfing, right on the edge of the Island’s capital, Douglas Golf Club at Pulrose Park is ideal.
A favourite Isle of Man golf course was founded in 1891 and maintained in first class condition, Douglas Golf Club offers a memorable day out.
The course offers a variety of challenging holes, notably the par three 17th, from an elevated tee to a green some 70 feet below where you’ll need anything from a 7-iron to a wood depending on conditions, and the superb 322-yard par four second hole which requires a well-placed drive to set up a very difficult mid-iron second shot into a high and closely guarded green.
Isle of Man Golf Holidays say ‘Most of us will never get to see Augusta – this is a treat to play, skilfully laid out and has some great scoring opportunities. A controlled draw of the ball will reap rewards. Whilst in club house, try and find a real character known as ‘The Bear’ – PGA Pro Mike Vipond. One of the great golf hosts on the Isle of Man.’
Par 69 Men’s 5922 yards;
