Respond to above review Was this review helpful? The course is famously split into thirds, the first few holes are good parkland holes winding around the church on the other side of the road, which is followed by some standout links holes running alongside the beach, with the closing holes a challenging set of holes running along mingler interracial dating clifftop and back to the clubhouse. I just did not "get" this course, sorry. The flow was not helped by the severity of the elevation changes between the seaside holes and the clifftop downland holes.
Maybe the 10th just irked me on the day and maybe I'm being unfair, but I would prefer to leave the 9th green and just walk up the hill to the next tee to on a proper golf hole! It is suitable for all handicaps and not easy but very beautiful housewives wants sex deadwood.
We played ladies want casual sex hannaford fourball in Ballycastle one afternoon last August after 18 holes in Portstewart. One small point, just so potential visitors to NI are not confused, is that Ardglass is basically at the opposite end of NI on the County Down coast, so probably a 2 hour drive. As you will find in other reviews, the course is rather a mixture of styles.

A bit of an unusual layout as some of the holes are across a road and away from the shoreline giving it a half links feel. It is yards on the card, and I can't help thinking most of those yards are upwards instead of forwards. Steve Emsley.
Great Course with some very interesting holes. Taken on their own there is not much wrong with most of the holes in these stretches, in dating internet leeds the parkland holes and especially 1 and 2 were among my favourites.

Moreover, the price of a green fee afternoon was 10 pounds if I remember correctly. These 2 holes for me are the undoing of the course, the 10th more so than the 17th as I felt it literally broke the course in two. It's just one of many memorable holes at Ballycastle.

The yard par 4 15th was in my opinion the most enjoyable, a long drive up to the crest of a hill leaving an attractive looking downhill approach.

It was a "Soft Day" when I played this gem in June The course varies greatly with a few very memorable holes. If you are going to be playing golf in this part of the world for a few days then definitely stop by on the merit of the views alone, but if you only have time for 1 round of golf in Northern Ireland then your Castlerocks, Portstewarts or Portrushes are only minutes away!
The front 5 holes are flattish parkland, with the next 3 holes plus the 18th being on seaside links-like terrain and the rest being what I would call down white and latino dating. One the 10th goes up, and one the 17th comes down again.

Fun course even when wind and rain make it really tough. Golf Club Website.

Played and in Causeway Golf Tourney and will play again in - this course starts in a park and then goes to the sea!

The first five guernsey online dating are played on parkland beside the Margy River and ruins of the Bonamargy Abbey, with the remaining holes laid out along the coast — holes 11 to 17 run up one side of a cliff, along beautiful lady wants real sex pleasantville top, then back down the other side.
I get quirky, and without routing the holes over different terrain types you wouldn't be able to have an 18 hole course here at all, so bravo to the deers for that. The 7th, a yard par 4 running along the beach into a clever green, and the par 5 18th between the OOB road on the left and some dunes on the right were my highlights from the more links style section. The 6th and 7th are decent holes and the 15th and 18th holes are very good.
Absolutely appreciate the fact that the course had to use the parkland area in order to make the 18 and actually these are not bad holes housewives seeking sex tonight huron ohio downside was having to wait for a lady member practicing up and down the 1st and 5th holes while we were playing!
I rate this as a delightful experience and I enjoyed it much more than Castlerockplayed the following day. Gerard McCloskey. November 10, Mariano Martinez de Azagra. The 1st being a generous yet interesting short par 5 with the river running up the right-hand side, the 2nd a par 4 doglegging across the corner of an old graveyard.
Elevation changes which have been taken care of by two par 3s. Well wort a visit if up in the North East coast of N. Not in the same league as Portrush or Castlerock but the green fees are reasonable and the club house does some lovely i want to date you quotes to help wind down after your round.
The condition of the course was very good, and credit must be given for the consistency of green conditions between the low-lying parkland holes and the rest. I'm afraid for me the course as a whole totalled less than the sum of it's parts. April 22, O'Neal Share:.

beautiful lady seeking flirt aurora I recommend this course to any golf tourist who is in the area; will not be disappointed. December 03, David Oliver. Perhaps it is for this reason that I remember Ballycastle far less fondly than the other courses, but am bearing this in mind in my best effort to write a fair review. Well worth a visit, would definitely play again for the views and the diversity alone, a real hidden gem.
August 09, Ardglass is superb. Well worth the stop and near Morton's for great fish and chips, too! Phil Cottington.
After the recent rains, the parkland style holes were flooded, so we could just play along the coast, but I must say we were very pleasantly surprised by this course.
