Cushendall Road, Ballycastle
Ballycastle Golf Club, founded in 1890, sits yards from the shoreline on the Causeway Coast, a spectacular stretch of golfing coastline of unsurpassed beauty. The golf course is one of the most scenic in Northern Ireland and has a multitude of personalities from tame parkland holes to wild links offerings and includes flat and low-lying holes and a back nine that launches you up into seaside hills that command panoramic views of the town of Ballycastle, Fair Head, Rathlin Island and on a clear day the Mull of Kintyre. It’s exposed location and the typical challenging conditions call for real shot making, from punched long irons, little bump and runs to hitting under the wind. This is how the game originally started and what real golf is all about. By the end of the round there is no doubt that you will have used every shot in your bag.
