Lying in the far north of Northern Ireland are the golf courses at the Portstewart Golf Club. The serene and tranquil setting of this complex is perfect for those that want quality golf without all the hustle and bustle of mainstream clubs in busier areas. Within the county of Londonderry, the club lies near to the town from which is takes its name and the fellow nearby town of Portrush is also well known for its great golfing facilities.
Founded in 1894, the club here has a long and rich history spanning decades and is very proud of its heritage. The club is home to no less than three fantastic courses: The Old, The Strand and The Riverside and all have their own excellent features and merits which each attract their own specific followers.
Made up of 18 holes, the Strand course is the only one of the three at the site which is of a championship standard and is finished to the highest of standards. This links course has all the features one would expect and is wound through sand dunes and rugged terrain to create a challenging yet beautiful course. As always, nature plays a massive role in the success of players here and this course is often cited as the most formidable of the three and poses a significant challenge. From the white tees it measures 6040 metres from the white tees with a par of 72 for gentlemen.
The club is well appointed to meet the needs of most modern golfers and there is a welcoming bar and restaurant area for players to enjoy after their rounds in which they are sure to receive a friendly welcome and a perfectly poured pint or two (if they so desire!). There is also a well-stocked professional golf shop at the club offering an array of equipment and apparel from a number of international brands and helpful, knowledgeable staff are on hand to provide guidance and advice when needed.
As the Strand course is the most popular and challenging of the three, tee time availability for visitors is rather restricted and there are only a few slots throughout the weeks for visitors to partake in. That said, it is well worth the wait. Green fees for the course reflect its nature, quality and prestige and this is somewhat of a high-end course.
Access to the club is relatively good from the north of the country as well as the north west of nearby Ireland and the town of Coleraine is relatively close by and offers a number of stronger links to elsewhere in Northern Ireland. There are a number of accommodation options in and around the local area which should appeal to most tastes and budgets.

Average rating obtained byThis rating for Portstewart Golf Club. is the average of 21 ratings obtained from www.top100golfcourses.co.ukI 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.
Average rating obtained byThis rating for Portstewart Golf Club. is the average of 1 ratings obtained from www.worldgolf.comThe Strand course at Portstewart Golf Club should definitely be mentioned with the top courses in Northern Ireland. In my opinion the only thing that keeps it from being a top course is the last half
Average rating obtained byThis rating for Portstewart Golf Club. is the average of 6 ratings obtained from www.ukgolfguide.comWow, 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.
