Formed in 1914, Newtownstewart Golf Club is situated in the foothills of the Sperrin Mountains, within the attractive parkland estate of Baronscourt, the ancestral home of the Duke of Abercorn. Frank Pennink was engaged to extend the original 9-hole course and so holes 9 to 17 on the modern-day layout came into play in the early 1970s.

More recent improvements have been made to the course, including the addition of some length to the Pennink holes at the 396-yard 12th, “Pheasant Walk”, the 16th (a par five that has also been tightened up with the installation of extra bunkers) and the 389-yard 17th, named “Koram”.

Two of the tougher holes at Newtownstewart can be found on the old nine; the tee shot at the 385-yard 6th (“Big Bessy”) is threatened by trees down the left side of the hole whilst the 377-yard 8th (“The Ravine”) requires golfers to negotiate a fairway that turns sharply left towards the green.
