Castlerock Golf Club was founded in 1901, originally as a nine-hole layout. The famous Scottish club maker, Ben Sayers, extended the course to 18 holes in 1908. In 1925, Harry Colt made further modifications.
Living in the shadow of its famous neighbours, Portstewart and Royal Portrush, Castlerock Golf Club does not disappoint. This is one of the toughest links courses around, with some fantastic holes. Play close to your handicap and you are doing exceptionally well.
As a closing note, Castlerock also has a 9-hole course called the Bann. The layout is similar to the main Mussenden course, and the par five 5th is considered to be “one of the most scenic holes in Irish golf” – we can’t disagree.
