About The Course
The course is a unique golfing challenge in that it covers both parkland and links holes. The first five holes are flanked by the Rivers Margy and Carey with various trees and natural hills as the main landscape. The ruins of the 12th century Bon-a-Margy abbey provide an historical "out of bounds".
From hole six onwards you are presented with some outstanding links holes running alongside the strand and between gorse and sand dunes encompassing impressive views of the famous North Antrim Coastline, the Mull of Kintyre in Scotland and the hills of Donegal.
About Ballycastle Golf Club
Ballycastle Golf Club, founded in 1890, sits yards from the shoreline on the Causeway Coast, a spectacular stretch of golfing coastline of unsurpassed beauty. The golf course is one of the most scenic in Northern Ireland and has a multitude of personalities from tame parkland holes to wild links offerings and includes flat and low-lying holes and a back nine that launches you up into seaside hills that command panoramic views of the town of Ballycastle, Fair Head, Rathlin Island and on a clear day the Mull of Kintyre. It's exposed location and the typical challenging conditions call for real shot making, from punched long irons, little bump and runs to hitting under the wind. This is how the game originally started and what real golf is all about. By the end of the round there is no doubt that you will have used every shot in your bag.
