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.
