Portstewart Golf Club overview
Portstewart Golf Club was founded in 1894 and is home to three great links golf courses. The Old Course, The Strand and The Riverside provide completely unique challenges, each create an enjoyable test of golf within contrasting pieces of land. The undulating fairways that weave their way through spectacular dunes on The Strand Course create a beautiful setting for this top-quality golf course. The Riverside Course offers a slightly different test but is equally enjoyable. There are a range of holes that meander along the banks of the River Bann allowing for beautiful views.
