THE COURSE

 

The golf facility at Eriska is ever evolving. Our long term intention is to create a 9 hole course with teaching and practice facilities so when we began back in 1994 we began with a simple three hole pitch and put triangle. this has evolved through a 9 hole par three course to a six hole par 22 course with the intention to reach a nine hole par 35 course eventually. So for now it as a vacation course with driving range and practice facility.
