Perched in the far north of Northern Ireland is the fantastic Portstewart Golf Club and its golf courses. This extensive complex lies within County Londonderry and overlooks the churning North Atlantic Ocean. Portstewart itself is very close to the town of Portrush which is also renowned for its excellent golfing installations including the Royal Portrush golf club meaning this area is a must visit for golf pilgrims from both near and far. 

The club was originally founded in 1894 making it one of the oldest in the country. The complex is home to not one, not two but three excellent courses which offer a diverse and interesting array of game play for golfers of varying styles. The Old Course, The Riverside and The Strand are all made up of 18 holes and all have their own specific appeal. 

As the name suggests, The Old course is the oldest of the three here and is laid out on the original location of the course along the rugged shoreline.  This is perhaps the most sympathetic of the three courses and is a par 64 which measures 4407 metres for gentlemen. The features here are very mature and traditional and this course is an excellent example of a true links style. Expect rolling sand dunes and rugged terrain combined with panoramic views and vistas to create an enjoyable course with a fair amount of challenge.

Due to the sheer size of the complex, the facilities here are very good and there is a spacious restaurant and bar area for players to enjoy after their rounds in which all are sure to receive a warm welcome. There is also a well-stocked professional golf shop with a number of items for both sale and hire including clubs and trollies which will help to facilitate play.

As the Old course is the least challenging of the three, it is not the most popular meaning that tee time availability for visitors is normally very good and there should be a time to suit all. Green fee rates for the Old course are also very reasonable and reflect its less demanding nature.

The club may at first seem secluded thanks to its tranquil nature and setting however the major town of Coleraine is just a short distance to the south of the area by car. Accommodation options in and around the area are moderate and the club has a number of long-established links with many local providers.

    I played Portstewart last week. Course is a good test. Greens were lovely. Some of the holes were a bit strange, but over all an enjoyable day. I would reccommend coming and playing Portstewart if in the area, as you will no doubt have a good day, but be warned - it can be wet in November, so maybe better to wait until summer.

    Wow, what a course. The front nine has got to be one of the best I've ever played, the views and the dunes (they're massive!) are great. It isn't the easiest course you'll ever play with lots of rough ready to snare any shot off line. I think I'd play a lot better when I play it next time as there are plenty of times when you are unsure which club to hit. Well worth a game and the clubhouse served some cracking food and drink after our golf.
