Gracelands Traad Ponds is situated in N.Ireland on the West coast of Lough Neagh just outside Ballyronan and is surrounded by a conservation area teeming with wildlife.
Opened in 1998, Gracelands Traad Ponds was designed around man made ponds which were made by dredging sand in the 50’s and 60’s.
All the trees and vegetation have now matured around the ponds and a challenging nine-hole golf course was cut out of the wilderness.
There are five ponds containing freshwater fish such as Pike, Roach, Perch, Tench, Eel, Rud and Bream. This is a catch and release Fishing Facility from the fifthteen specially constructed fishing stands. Fishing from dawn to dusk.
New clubhouse will be opening in the near future with changing rooms and shower.
The course is set in a particularly picturesque parkland area demanding skills and patience for the golfer due to the position and size of the man made ponds.
Although it is strictly parkland in nature, the nine-hole
tract has the distinct feel of a links course offering excellent year
The golf course has 6 par fours and 3 par threes with some challenging navigation required over the ponds.
With the ground being of sandy nature the course is quite dry and playable almost all year round.
There are changing rooms and shower facilities.
