By Agnes Birnbaum
A recent stay at Lough Erne Resort, a luxurious golf resort in Co. Fermanagh, Northern Ireland proved to be a wonderful experience in a truly enchanting environment.   Comprising 600 acres on a peninsula in the Fermanagh lake district,  the resort has two championship golf courses:  the Nick Faldo Championship Course and the Lough Hume course.  

Located two hours
 by car from either Dublin or Belfast, the resort is also reachable via seaplane or helicopter.
 The Faldo Championship course, 7,167 yards with Par 72, has stunning scenery of Lough Erne,  14 holes with water features and another welcome sight:  a Halfway House mid-course offering refreshment.  And at the tenth hole, known as "Emerald Isle", the green is surrounded on
 three sides by water.  

The Nick Faldo Championship Course, designed by Nick Faldo, is the only one of its kind in Ireland.    If you’re taking instruction at the Nick Faldo Academy you can use
 their indoor and outdoor training facilities and take advantage of their advanced video and computer technology to track balls in flight and analyze your swing.   |

The touring professional is
 Rory McIlroy and Lynn McCool is the resident instructor.
When The Faldo Championship Course hosted the Lough Erne Challenge--the Dual on the Lough between top Irish golfers Rory McIlroy and Padraig Harrington—Rory McIlroy set a Faldo Course Record of 68.   

 In 2011 and 2012 the Faldo Championship Course will host the Faldo Series Grand Final and Faldo Series Ireland Championships.  
  As befits the saying about Ireland as a place where the expected rarely happens and the unexpected
 often does, there’s an unexpected find here:  an authentic

Thai spa! 

The resort prides itself on offering the most authentic Thai spa experience outside of Thailand.  That’s right,
 the highly trained spa staff comes directly from Thailand.  After a day swatting golf balls hither
 and yon, you’re in for a treat at the tranquil Thai Spa offering special golfer’s treatments andpampering massages using a range of soothing Asian botanical ingredients.   Among such
 pleasures as a full body massage, scalp massage, foot massage or ginger scrub, guests can
 also indulge in the spa’s special relaxation rooms, exotic rain shower and crystal aroma steam room.   Pure bliss!   And one evening before dinner I happily took a plunge in the infinity pool. 
 While fruit smoothies are available at the spa, if you want something stronger, head straight to the
Blaney Bar which offers an astounding array of liquor,  including over 100 varieties of Irish whiskey!      
And if there are six or more in your group, the hotel can arrange a private Irish
Whiskey Tasting event in conjunction with the nearby Bushmills distillery,  Ireland’s oldest
 distillery, and the only distillery in Ireland to make triple-distilled malt whiskey.
 I thoroughly enjoyed the welcoming fireplaces throughout and feeling very cozy in my plush and
 romantic turreted cottage suite overlooking the lake.    
Meals couldn’t have been tastier, prepared
 with fresh local produce under the direction of acclaimed Irish chef Noel McMeel and I still recall
the mouthwatering steak I had.   And at the full Irish breakfast (salmon, eggs, bacon, etc.) there
 was even a bottle of Bushmills whiskey standing next to the oatmeal.    I was told it’s an Irish
 tradition--and comes in handy when facing the golf course in bracing weather!    
  Besides golf, there are other sporting choices.  There’s a Resident Game Angling
 instructor, opportunities for salmon fishing, helicopter and seaplane tours, flying lessons, horseback
 riding and 4x4 off road driving.   If you can’t bring yourself to leave this tranquil hideaway,
 there are lodge homes for rent or purchase, and owners are entitled to exclusive member privileges.   
  Lough Erne Resort definitely made an impression on me as being unique in many ways, 
 particularly as a place where visitors can play golf and “Thai” one on!
There are special golf packages throughout the year and it’s a nice location for conferences,
weddings and romantic getaways, too.    

is very helpful in planning your trip.
