We would like to thank all our Patrons and visitors who have played Sandfield Pitch and Putt this year. We hope you have enjoyed your days here.
It has been a tough year. Both from weather wise perspective in what has been a record wet year. Also with the various challenges we have faced in preparing and maintaining the course. We look forward to delivering new challenges and new holes in the coming years as well as upgrading the facilities here at Sandfield.
A Busy day on the Sandfield Pitch and Putt Leaderboard yesterday and here is the update for 17th August. We have a new low score of 5 under par 49, recorded by Manus Friel with 6 Birdies and 1 Bogey.

Congratulations to Manus who now heads our Leaderboard.
Unrelated this was followed by a personal low score of 51 for Paul Whelan bettering his previous best of 53.
“Michael Allsop hails from Nottinghamshire in England. His wife hails from Ardara. In the spring of 2021, they re-opened Sandfield pitch and putt in Ardara as the new owners. Michael tells the story of how this came to be, buying the piece of property from the now late Tom Finn. We look back on the course’s early history as well, which dates back to 1983. Michael has exciting plans for the future of Sandfield pitch and putt which he and his family run. He talks about the cost to play a round, best scores submitted and famous names to have stopped by for a round. I hope you enjoy the interview.” — Tony McGettigan.
