Ardminnan Golf Club is situated near the small coastal town of Portaferry, and is one of the top golf courses in County Down. It is pleasantly situated in an area of outstanding local beauty, close to the Silver Bay Caravan Park, and has panoramic views out over the North Sea. This club is worth a visit for this reason alone, if nothing else!

This scenic 9 hole course, which was designed by the locally renowned course architect Frank Ainsworth, opened to the public for the first time in 1995, one of the younger golf courses in the area.

The composition of the course itself is as follows:

  • It covers an area of approximately 45 acres.
  • It consists of a 70 par course.
  • It has a total length of just over 3,000 yards.
  • It features two gradual hills, a river and two ponds.


This course is enjoyable and manageable, and is especially recommended for golfers with a lower level of experience, although it has to be said that some of the holes, particularly those affected by the water hazards do prove to be an exciting challenge. As such, this course would be perfect for those golfers who wish to integrate their game within a busy schedule, whether that be for work or on holiday, or for bringing along friends or family members who are less experienced.  

Ardminnan Golf Club, a smaller club as it is, boasts facilities for both trolley and club hire, as well as a fully licensed bar and restaurant – complete with an outside seating area - perfect for enjoying a light lunch in the sun after your round. You can also venture minutes down the road into the quaint little town of Portaferry to wander around and see the Marina or perhaps visit the town’s aquarium – the only one in Northern Ireland!

Green fees and tee times are very reasonably priced, and can be reserved by calling the club, and visitors are welcome at any time, but advance bookings should be made for societies.

Ardminnan Golf Club is a hidden gem amongst the more famous golf courses in Northern Ireland, and its beautiful scenery makes it a great place to enjoy a quick round any day of the week.
