Assistant Professional

After three years quietly in the making, Dragon’s Fire Golf Club took flight in 2008 when the course opened to the public. While the 18-hole championship caliber design doesn’t have supernatural powers, the secrets dwelling within Dragon’s Fire boundaries are well guarded by some 80 bunkers and other natural hazards. The abundance of trees and rolling landscape, provides a feeling of seclusion and isolation as you play each of the holes that are surrounded by neighbouring woods and farm fields.

Whether you want to believe that dragons are friendly creatures that bring good fortune and wealth or that they’re fiery beasts that kill their prey from a distance your theory will probably be determined by the tees you choose to play from. The course stretches from 5,200 to 7,200 yards, par-72 with six sets of large tee blocks to choose from. We have designed this course to be both enjoyable and challenging for the average golfer, yet the further back you go the more the dragon’s fury and teeth will come into play, there is a 660-yard, par-5 to deal with for anyone playing the tips.
