History of Colin Valley
The Colin Valley Golf Course, formerly known as the Old Dunmurry Golf Course, previously flourished as a public 18 hole course but fell into disrepair due to pressure on the land after it was vested by the Department of the Environment for the construction of the Dunmurry by-pass.
The Colin Glen Trust took over the management of the remaining 56 acres in 1994 and began to restructure the course and the management systems. Over two years the Trust turned it from a loss making facility to one that made a small profit, which in turn was ploughed back into the development of the greens and fairways.
In 1997 the Trust introduced an attractive membership scheme to enable the many local players to join the newly formed Colin Valley Golf Club, whilst Pay and Play Facilities also continue to be made available.
A new development plan for the course was started Spring 2000, which will see the creation of new greens and tees, the realignment of the Course to facilitate a new entrance at Blackís Road, the development of a Driving Range Facility, Outdoor Bowling Green and a new Clubhouse, as well as storage and workshops.
This unique facility ensures the protection of an important piece of green space in an area of increasing developmental pressure, and is an extension of the wildlife haven of Colin Glen Forest Park less than a mile upstream along the Colin River which links the two properties.
The Colin Valley Golf Course also provides financial support for the Colin Glen Forest Park, as any income is ploughed back to the Trust to help manage the Glen.
