Larry Foley and a member of the club, Liam McDevitt, purchased the club and hired Hanse Design and company to completely renovate the links. Phase One began in October 2018 and was completed in February 2019 by SOL Golf Construction. Phase Two began in October 2019 and was completed in June 2020 by Atlantic Golf Construction.

The Modern Links

The course is a Par 70 that can play from 4999 yards to 6591 yards over fours sets of tees. There is also a combo set of tees that plays at 5386 yards. There are four one-shot holes all of which are under 150 yards. There are just two three-shot holes, with the 3rd hole tip the scales at nearly 600 yards.
