The City of Derry Golf Club has one of the most progressive junior programs in the country. Junior golfers are given the opportunity to learn, play and compete on one of our two courses.


The 9 hole Dunhugh Academy Course offers a fair but challenging prospect to golfers of all abilities. It has a selection of par 3’s and 4’s ranging from 70 yards to 375 yards. Golfers can select one of the three sets of tee’s based on ability and the distance they hit the ball.


The 18 hole Prehen Course, our championship course offers a much sterner test with longer more challenging holes, it is recommended that children learn and develop their game on the 9 hole course before attempting the championship offering.
