What the club says: Ballycastle lies at the foot of Glenshesk - one of the Glens of Antrim. It offers a variety of terrain, combining parkland and links traits to present a good test over the excellently maintained course. Founded in 1890, Ballycastle also has outstanding panoramic views of Glenshesk and the North Antrim Coast.

An excellent afternoon/evening

This is a lovely and challenging links course for a golfer of moderate ability like myself. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the coastal scenery and were fortunate to play on a lovely afternoon finishing just after 7pm. The course was in great condition and the greens ran true. Well done the grounds team.

Differing opinions

Three of us played this course and two of us thought it was great throughout whilst the other, who is a low handicapper found the holes at the top of the cliffs bland. All of us found the condition of the course to be first class and the resident pro is very friendly and helpful. Clubhouse facilities are excellent. Practice facilities are limited.

First 5 holes just don't belong there at all. Everything else works well with some very testing holes. Some more on course signage would help but it's a minor point. I would like to play again in the summer months.

What a great course. The first five holes are parkland, fairways good, greens immaculate, variety OK. Then you are back by the clubhouse and the next thirteen holes are more links in character with lots of sloped, hard fairways that bring in an element of luck and tough rough in places. Variety is great over and the fairways and greens are in immaculate condition over these thirteen holes. The views from the tee boxes are picture postcard on some holes.

Reasonably priced course which gives every golfer the chance to play on part links conditions without the huge fees usually associated with links golf.

Stunning views and beautiful sloping fairways and some interesting holes. Well worth the money. Greens slightly bumpy though but not enough to put me off

I played Ballycastle on Sunday June 13 along with my two good friends, Chris Hughes and Roy Lappin. The weather forecast was a bit iffy, but it turned into a really beautiful day. The course was in tip top condition and even though I didn't get off to the best of starts I still had an enjoyable day. It was Chris's Captain's day in the society he belongs to and Roy and me were there as two visitors. The only downer on the day was that we weren't allowed to win the two's competition or the 'longest' drive, which Roy would have won easily. Otherwise we were treated like Kings and Chris was his usual charming affable host. We enjoyed our meal in the clubhouse after the golf, pretty basic fair but ample enough. The Guinness was in good order (just a half pint for me) and the service was excellent. The cost for the day was £28, which for Sunday golf with a meal (basic fayre), represents good value for money in my book, all in all a good experience.
