Course Information

As with all links courses, the wind plays a key role in how your game will develop. Keeping shots low should reduce the impact of the prevailing winds on tee and approach shots. The signature hole is the par 4, 10th which measures 435 yards and has out of bounds along its left side and some subtle bunkering on the right. An elevated green protected by gorse bushes and deep rough increase the difficulty even further.

    Shockingly good

    Course was in excellent condition for this time of year. Solid fairways, hard fast greens and thankfully the rough was pretty forgiving. Would love to play again and am dreading playing my own boggy parkland course again.

    Fantastic course

    This is the 3rd time I've played at Kirkistown and it always lives up to expectation. Course was in fantastic condition for the 2nd Jan. Got it on a good day as was little to no wind so was not too difficult. Have played before when blowing a gale and it is a completely different beast. Can't wait to play again! Staff were brilliant as well, very friendly and welcoming. Great putting green and chipping area.

    Great course and great club

    First time playing Kirkistown and the course was in great condition. Fairways played beautifully and greens were excellent, challenging at times but also very rewarding if you take on the brave shot. 10/10 would play again

    kirkistown golf course

    had a really great day at the course ,greens where in great condition and a nice pace .the rough is not a place to be, so keep it on the fairways .you need to be brave at some of the holes and dont be afraid to try a chip and run onto the greens , stay out of the bunkers they are deep.will look forward to another round here again, value for money was excellent.

    There is no better place to play golf than on a true links course and Kirkistown Castle has been giving golfers that experience since 1902. With native fescue splitting the marram grass fairways, gently rolling terrain and a good breeze coming off the sea, you're in links heaven. A friendly greeting from Niall in the pro shop, a good test of golf and a pint afterwards made for a great day.

    A real test of golf.

    Myself and three friends played a Saturday afternoon fourball. The course was in great condition despite the horrendous weather we had in the few days before our game. The greens are the best I have seen at this time of year. The wind was galeforce but it just added another element to an excellent day out. The change in elevation from tee to fairway and fairway to green was really challenging. The wind made the course play fairly long also. I would strongly recommend the course to golfers of all handicaps.

    Excellent Course

    Great open links course with fantastic drainage but beware of the weather, windy conditions can turn a round into a real challenge! Enjoyable nonetheless. Food afterwards was good quality and very reasonably priced. Service was friendly and efficient. Overall, a good package that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to others.
