Darren Clarke - Castle Dargan Golf Course Designer & Club Member

“I set out with the objective of designing a golf course that would do justice to a wonderful estate and create a test for golfers of all abilities. The land we had to work with very much dictated the design and allowed us shape some truly magnificent golf holes. Now we are finished, I can only say I am overwhelmed by the result. I am very proud to be a part of such a magnificent club” - Darren Clarke, Designer & Member
