The golf course at the Traad Ponds Golf and Leisure Complex is located centrally within Northern Ireland. Lying on the shore of the expansive Lough Neagh, the complex is home to a number of freshwater ponds that are a must visit for anglers and as well as the enjoyable golf course there are installations for darts and pool also. Lying on the fringes of County Londonderry, the site is just outside of the small town of Magherafalt which has good general amenities for all. 

There is little known about the history of both the course and the complex in general however it is clear to all that play here that this is a much loved installation. The course has matured well over its lifetime and is somewhat of a pleasure to play on. 

Comprising of just nine holes, the course here can either be played as a nine or 18 hole layout depending on the desires of individual players. An 18 hole round measures just short of 4500 metres from the yellow tees with a par of 66. Features here are well placed and include a number of well integrated ponds. Although on paper the course is definitely of a parkland style, there is a distinct links style vibe to the course which will be apparent to all that play here.

Facilities at the club are fair and there is a pleasant restaurant-bar area on site offering a good selection of refreshments for players to enjoy. There is also a fast food stand at the complex offering an array of quick meals such as pizza and chips for those who may be short on time. Furthermore there are modest practice facilities at the site including a practice area and putting green. 

Tee time availability for visitors to this course is generally good and there should be a time to suit all if people are willing to avoid peak times that are preferred by members such as weekends. Green fee rates are very reasonable here and players are sure to find this a good value golfing facility.

As the country is so compact, road links both to and from the area are strong and the major metropolitan hubs of Antrim and Belfast are easily accessed from here. There are fair accommodation options in and around the local area that are likely to suit all, particularly those that enjoy outdoor pursuits.

    Great course that should challenge any player whatever the handicap. You wont find a better course in N. Ireland at this price!. Always able to get a game even at weekends. Not really any facilities at the course but the staff couldn't have been more helpful. (Round played: Aug 2012 - Score: 95 Handicap: )
