Galgorm Castle was awarded the IGTOA’s ‘Parkland Course of the Year 2014’ award. The course draws widespread praise from European Tour players and officials annually during the Northern Ireland Open, with particular praise based on the pristine greens that run true all year round.


The 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. Bordered by the rivers Maine and Braid, these 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.


Off the course, the academy includes a 24-bay driving range and USGA spec short game area plus the fun golf area’s pitch & putt course and Himalayas putting green.

The clubhouse is home to the outstanding Castle Kitchen + Bar, a brand new destination bar & restaurant offering the very best in local produce and hospitality.
