King of the Castle

What a gem this course is, the greens were fantastic, the fairways also in good condition and some of the views out towards the Mourne Mtns were spectacular. Its a big course and tough to play in any weather but expect a real challenge on a windy day. Only let down was poor facilities i.e. food etc

Great Course just outside Downpatrick

I was a member of Bright Castle for many years before moving away. I recently went back to play it and it is better than ever. The Ennis brothers who own the course have done a great job in making a great course even better. I would love to see the par 6 put back in but that is just for old times sake. Highly recommended if you are in the Downpatrick area.

GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY

Best opening 4 x holes to a golf course. Great views, always look forward to playing there. Hard to find but you are glad as the first tee is normally empty.Arnold & Gordon always welcoming. Would be nice if they could turn back time and re-instate the par 6. Would recommend for all handicaps.

We visited this course in August, 2015. Not having the time to book a round I did visit - the management provided a cart - and was amazed at the beauty of the course and the dramatic views of the Mourne (you seemingly could almost touch them) and the sea just below it. After inquiring as to the golf fee and realized this must be the best kept secret in all of Northern Ireland. A bit remote, but a short drive from Downpatrick and perfect in every way!

A cracking course, have been coming here for over twenty years and would recommend 100%. This course is well maintained and fully playable during the winter months, never a temporary tee box or green.
