Ballycastle Golf Club

Northern Ireland, Ireland

Ballycastle Golf Club overview

Located on the northern coast of Northern Ireland, just a few yards from the spectacular shoreline of the Causeway Coast, Ballycastle Golf Club is one of the most scenic in Northern Ireland.

Founded in 1890, it is a wonderful mix of tame parkland holes and wild links, from flat and low lying to a back nine up in the seaside hills, which provide panoramic views of Ballycastle town, Fair Head, Rathlin Island and even the Mull of Kintyre on a clear day.

Golf Course overview

The course at Ballycastle is one of the most varied in Northern Ireland. The first five holes are parkland and flanked by the Rivers Margy and Carey, with various trees and natural hills as the main landscape. From hole six onwards golfers can expect more of a links layout, with holes running between thick gorse up in the seaside hills, offering fantastic views of the famous North Antrim Coastline, the Mull of Kintyre in Scotland and the hills of Donegal.

At a little under 6,000 yards, Ballycastle is not known for its length, but what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in characters and quirkiness throughout the course. A unique feature to look out for when playing the first five holes is the 12th Century ruin of Bon-a-Margy Abbey, which provides a truly unique out-of-bounds and one that you will hopefully avoid!

Signature Holes

The signature hole at Ballycastle Golf Club has to be the par-3 17th. Measuring in at 180-yards, the hole provides a beautiful hilltop vista that golfers can enjoy, with the green a tricky 100ft below, and requiring the perfect club selection.
