A must play!!

If you are on the north coast of Northern Ireland you MUST play this course. It is superb. Everything about it is great. The staff are all so friendly and helpful, and the course is in excellent condition with superb views, especially up by the 17th tee box. Will definately be back here again to play it.

High Handicappers nightmare

I played with a low handicapper who loved this course but for me and the other high handicapper in our three ball this course proved very difficult. Many of the tee shots are intimidating with fescue a hazard even before you reach the fairway. I have never seen so many players searching for balls on a course and the day was calm not windy. It is a lovely course and it is in immaculate condition but if you drive to land around 170 yards you will be in trouble on many holes. Low handicappers enjoy a course that is set up for your game.

Tight course so don't go off the fairway or the grass is punishing and hard to find your balls. Greens in fantastic condition and dry underfoot all around the course. Some slow groups and cutting in made it a frustrating 3.5hrs when it should have taken a lot less.

I have to admit that I was a bit disappointed with the first 3 holes here, but I was delighted with what followed. After a bland start, the 4th is a fantastic par 3 with out of bounds (and a railway line) all down the right, as with the following par 5. The course then wends it's way through the dunes, with the most punishing rough of any course we played on our Northern Irish tour.Some great elevated tees and greens. We were unfortunate to have a consistent rain throughout our round, which obviously made the course more difficult, but it's a really good golf course. The clubhouse and Pro Shop were hugely welcoming and accommodating. A must play if you're on the Causeway coast.

Playe this course for the first time recently and it was an absolute pleasure, both in terms of the setting and the set up of the course. A very tricky par 73 with a large number of blind shots. As with any good links, it is essential that you stay straight as the rough is extremely punishing. With 5 par 5's on the course you are in for a long walk when you play here but it is definitely worth it. The course was in immaculate condition and the greens were like snooker tables. As I was playing with a member it only cost me £15 as well which is an absolute bargain - it is £95 at the weekends for visitors. When I played Ballyliffin in Donegal a few years ago I didn't think I would ever be as impressed wit a golf course again, but Castlerock definitely meets that standard. I am just dying to get back now to try and take a few shots off the round I just played, which at 27 points asn't a bad effort first time round.
