Parkland golf doesnâ€™t get much more elegant or tranquil than this. Two rivers run through the course while charming lakes lace several fairways. They threaten and divide holes. With no changes in elevation this is as gentle a round as youâ€™ll findâ€¦ but it is also the home of the Northern Irish Open, so you know the quality will be excellent.
Galgorm Castle is not designed to be punishing but the doglegs will test your positioning skills and the water can prove magnetic. And then there are the many mature trees spread over the estate (the castle lies to your left on the drive in). Great facilities, too.
Favourite Hole: the par five 10th is a sweet curling hole around a pond and a small wood of big oak. What's in the Bag? Accurate driving will open up greens.
