Founding a private club in a remote destination is not without peril and it is reasonable to expect a club to take some time find its footing. Now well in its second decade, Ballyneal enjoys its finest playing conditions since opening. Balls are releasing across the rumpled ground and players delight in finding creative ways to use banks and punchbowl features to work their shots close. Fescue fairways help the ground-game options flourish.
