Despite modest beginnings, on a local area of sandy turf known as the Warren, the original nine holes opened in 1891. By 1926 the final layout was created and the current 18 hole course has remained largely unchanged to the present day.
The course ‘clubhouse’ prior to 1901 consisted of a wood and corrugated iron hut. Over the years a fully functioning clubhouse was developed up to 2003 when the clubhouse was rebuilt and extensively modernised, providing excellent golfing facilities for both members and visitors.
The first five parkland holes are bounded by the rivers Margy and Carey and the ancient Bonamargy Abbey is situated alongside the 2nd, 3rd and 4th holes. The outstanding panoramic views of Glenshesk and the North Antrim Coast may force you to take your eye off the ball more often than you would like.
