The course was only opened in 1994 and is situated adjacent to the popular holiday coastal town of the Strand. This area is famed for its long stretch of unspoilt beach. The prominent features of the course are the abundant water hazards and bunkers, undulating greens and tree-lined fairways. Many of the holes on the back 9 play in semi-links style. The Strand Golf Club has been known for its greens over the years which have provided an excellent putting surface. There are several tee boxes (championship, club, senior and ladies) on each hole, which makes for approximately five hundred metre difference between championship tees and club tees over the 18 holes. In 1994, two and a half thousand trees were planted on this course and they are now becoming very much part of play.
