Our Take

Castlerock is a true hidden gem of Irish golf, often overlooked, or more aptly overshadowed by nearby Portrush and Portstewart. We sought it out precisely because of its unpolished nature. Castlerock is a lovely links course, presenting a truly memorable golfing adventure. There is nothing stuffy or pretentious about this course. The staff and members pride themselves on their warm hospitality. The setting is inspired and the golf is very good. We are pleased to include Castlerock in our itinerary and trust you will find it to your liking.
