Found in the south east of Northern Ireland is the golf course at the Bright Castle Golf Club. To the south of the major town of Downpatrick the club is well situated to receive visitors from both the rest of Northern Ireland as well as the north of nearby Ireland. The coast is only a short drive away from this club and there a number of lovely beaches in the area. Fellow golf courses found nearby include the one at Ardglass Golf Club which is another great golfing facility.

There is little documented about the foundations of the club and its course however it is clear that this has developed and matured well into a popular golfing installation in the area. The club is enjoyed by a good mix of both members and visitors and all are sure to enjoy their time here. 

Measuring a lengthy 6500 metres from the white tees and with a par of 73 this is a course of monster proportions. Its parkland style boasts many of the traditional features one would expect including plenty of mature trees and strategically placed bunkers to provide challenge. The course is open for play all year round and is rarely closed due to bad weather, it is an interesting and enjoyable course with just the right amount of challenge. 

Facilities at the club are as to be expected and players are sure to find most things that they will need for an enjoyable time. There is a modest pro shop offering a selection of equipment and apparel for players to purchase from a number of well-known international brands. Trolleys and buggies are also available for hire here and these will help to facilitate play.

This is a popular course with members although visitors are also warmly welcomed. With regards to tee times for visitors there is fair general availability and should be a time to suit all if arranged in advance. Green fee rates are very reasonable here and represent good value for money.

The towns of Newcastle and Downpatrick are nearby and transport links both to and from there are strong. With regards to accommodation, Downpatrick is quite popular with tourists at certain times of the year meaning that there is a good selection of providers in and around the local area which should appeal to most tastes and budgets.
