Galgorm Castle Golf Club

  • Galgorm Castle Golf Club boasts a fantastic par 72, 18-hole parkland golf course that was established in 1997 and has developed a brilliant reputation for itself as one of the top courses of Ireland and it is consistently rated as one of the top three parkland courses in Northern Ireland. 
     
    The course lies within the spacious 220-acre estate that once was home to the McQuillan clan including the breathtaking castle that overlooks the 10th green which was commissioned in 1618. Although at Galgorm Castle Golf Club you won’t have the prevailing winds disrupting your shots, this modern, tough and exciting parkland course can still offer a very stern test of golf that is not to be underestimated. There is plenty of water on the course to avoid as the fairways are bordered by Main River and Braid River on two sides and even if you manage to keep your ball on course and avoid these rivers, there are other water hazards along the way. This course boasts a stunning location with its fairways winding throughout the beautiful, old estate and it poses a great golfing challenge – a course that should not be missed out on whilst you are golfing in Northern Ireland.

    One of the best things about Galgorm Castle Golf Club (besides the brilliant course) is the Halfway Hut and The Clubhouse. The Halfway Hut is situated after the first nine holes and is the perfect place to enjoy a mid-round snack whilst discussing the (hopefully) successes of the first nine holes before embarking on the back nine. 
     
    The fairways are routed around the estate and you can tell that tournament play was in mind during the designing of the layout as many of the holes dogleg to the left or the right and the rough is very thick, particularly when it has been raining which can make it very difficult to score well! 
     
    The rivers play a heavy part in the course between the 4th hole and the 15th so it is crucial to hit accurately if you are to score to your handicap. The 4th hole is short but challenging as the fast-flowing River Braid runs to the front of the green and on the 7th you must also cross one of the rivers in order to reach the green. There are many difficult holes along the course and the pros can make it look easy but it certainly isn’t for anyone playing with an amateur handicap, but it is a fantastic course in a great location in immaculate condition.
