What we say

Ought really to be in Scotland; Ballycastle is exactly the kind of unassuming little links which Scotland is famous for. The course is gloriously good value and offers a mixture of good honest links action with some thrilling holes, not least one of the most spectacular downhill par 3s you’ll ever play.

Ballycastle Golf Club, situated in an 'Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty' on the North Antrim coast of Northern Ireland between the world famous Causeway Coast and the Glens of Antrim.
Ballycastle Golf Club offers a full 18 hole, part links, part parkland, championship course open to members and visitors all year round.

The Club was established in 1890 and is a founder member of The Golfing Union of Ireland. The first five holes of the course are on diverse parkland along the banks of the Margy and Carey Rivers and bordering the ruins of the 12th century Bonamargy Abbey. The rest of the course runs alongside the beach before rising to the "top holes" with panoramic views including the Mull of Kintyre, Rathlin Island and Ballycastle Bay.

Ballycastle offers a challenging enjoyable game. Accurate iron play is essential for good scoring while the undulating greens will test putting skills.    The modern clubhouse was completed in 2003 providing magnificent views over the course and is equipped with bar and restaurant facilities, visitor showers, locker and changing facilities. The club has a fully stocked PGA Professionals shop.

Ballycastle Golf Club is proud to be one of the four courses played each June in the world renowned Causeway Coast Golf Tournament.

    A wonderful location for a golf course. The scenery and views on the holes along the coast are hard to beat. Lovely clubhouse/warm welcome.
