  • 18 holes. par 73. 6,805 yards. Links.

    The classic links golf course at Castlerock was made into an 18 hole layout by the famous Scottish club maker Ben Sayers in 1908 before Harry Colt made alterations to the course in 1925. Castlerock is considered as one of the best links golf courses in the country and certainly won’t disappoint during a golf vacation to Northern Ireland. The course itself features a number of trademarks of a traditional links, including undulating fairways, punishing bunkers and is made a tougher challenge with the presence of a prevailing wind.

    Castlerock Golf Course has hosted a number of tournaments including the 2001 Ireland PGA International which featured the likes of Paul McGinley and Des Smyth. The signature hole at Castlerock is the par three 4th or ‘Leg O’Mutton’ which requires a perfect tee shot to a green guarded by bunkers – try not to focus on the out of bounds to the right and the water hazard running up the left. A visit to Castlerock will certainly enhance any golf break to Northern Ireland.
