Lying in the far north of Northern Ireland within County Londonderry are the golf courses at the Castlerock Golf Club. Nestled overlooking the steely North Atlantic Ocean, the views and panoramas that can be had from this site are truly out of this world. The local towns of Portrush and Coleraine have good general amenities for all and the local area is well known in the golfing world thanks to its large number of excellent golf courses, it is particularly synonymous with those of the traditional links style.

The site is home to two golf courses, the main Mussenden and the smaller yet still interesting Bann course which is named after the ebbing River Bann that lies very close to the site. The foundations of golf on the site date back to the early 20th century and therefore the club has a rich and diverse history spanning decades, a fact that is soon apparent to all that visit here. 

Consisting of 9 holes, the smaller Bann course has more universal appeal for players and is the more sympathetic of the courses. The style of the course is a mixture between parkland and links and is an intriguing and unique course that still offers its fair share of challenge. Measuring just short of 2240 metres and with a par of 34, this is an enjoyable and picturesque course that still has a good presence of features and hazards to keep players on their toes. 

The clubhouse is home to fair general facilities and there is both a bar and restaurant for players to enjoy after their rounds in which they are all sure to receive a warm and friendly welcome. Furthermore there is a pro shop on site offering a selection of goods from a number of international brands and practice facilities include a short game area on which players can refine their skills. 

Usually visitors combine their play on the Bann with a round on the Mussenden meaning that tee time availability is similar however it can be played as a stand-alone course if so wished. Green fee rates reflect the quality of the courses and the club and vary somewhat depending upon the time of the week/season.

The nearby towns of Portrush and Coleraine are well connected to much of the rest of the country as well as nearby Ireland by road. Onward links to elsewhere are strongest from the capital Belfast which is around an hour and twenty minutes to the southeast of the site by car. There are fair accommodation options in and around the local that are sure to appeal to most tastes and budgets.

    I have to admit that I was a bit disappointed with the first 3 holes here, but I was delighted with what followed. After a bland start, the 4th is a fantastic par 3 with out of bounds (and a railway line) all down the right, as with the following par 5. The course then wends it's way through the dunes, with the most punishing rough of any course we played on our Northern Irish tour.Some great elevated tees and greens. We were unfortunate to have a consistent rain throughout our round, which obviously made the course more difficult, but it's a really good golf course. The clubhouse and Pro Shop were hugely welcoming and accommodating. A must play if you're on the Causeway coast.(Round played: Apr 2015 - Score: 93 Handicap: 13.9)
