Galgorm Castle Golf Club is the Home of the European Tour Group’s Northern Ireland Open and one of Ireland’s finest Championship parklands. The course was awarded the IGTOA’s ‘Parkland Course of the Year’ in 2014 and is consistently ranked among the Top-3 Parklands in Northern Ireland, whilst drawing widespread praise from European Tour players and officials annually during the Northern Ireland Open.
The par-72 layout was designed by Simon Gidman and opened in 1997. The course is nestled in the heart of the 220-acre historic Galgorm Castle Estate, providing a mature setting that promotes an easy, relaxing rhythm that makes playing golf so pleasurable. The course is bordered by the rivers Maine and Braid which come into play on numerous holes, as well as five lakes and the magnificent oxbow lake adjacent to the 14th hole. A variety of teeing areas provide an exciting and enjoyable challenge for golfers of all abilities and its central location means the course is a must-visit for any golfers planning a trip to Northern Ireland.
“The long drive into the Estate shows off one of the best holes, the 10th – it looks wild, spacious and enthralling…the course undulates gently so it feels like a pleasant walk, which makes golf all the more enjoyable”
