Set on the Peninsula of Islandmagee, the nine-hole Larne Golf Club in Islandmagee offers views of the Antrim coast and even views of western Scotland when looking over the Irish Sea. Built in 1895, either side of the course is bordered by the Brownsbay and Ferris Bay beaches. In short, Larne Golf Club offers some of the most spectacular vistas in this part of Ireland. The addition of nine new teeing areas allows golfers to play Larne as par-70, 6,288-yard course of uniquely varying yardages and strategies. The first hole, for example, is a 520-yard par 5, and when played as the 10th hole, is a long par 4 at 460 yards. Overall, the first five holes on each side at Larne Golf Club are open, playable and provide a good foundation for solid scores. Finishing holes for each side, however, make players work to keep their scores low. The signature hole at Larne G.C. is the par-3 seventh/16th hole. Dubbed "The Bell," the holes are short par 3s that aren't as they seem -- an elevated tee requiring a shot over water to a green bordered on two sides by the Irish Sea adds difficulty and deception when nearing the home stretch of a round.
