Tom Watson Signature Design

“No other game combines the wonder of nature with the discipline of sport in such carefully planned ways. A great golf course both frees and challenges a golfer’s mind.” -Tom Watson, Winner of eight major championships, including five British Opens.

Unmatched Beauty and Challenge

With meticulous artistry, Tom Watson sculpted our golf course to harmonize flawlessly with the undulating terrain and verdant glens of the Parkville countryside. Venture onto our 18-hole championship course, and you'll find yourself immersed in a golfing experience like no other. The landscape, adorned with rolling hills and elevations rarely found in the region, challenges and rewards in equal measure. Watson's ingenuity shines through, offering a journey that both tests and uplifts, solidifying our reputation as a pinnacle of challenge and delight.
