Knee high grass instead of rough, elevation and directional changes and blind shots make this potentially fine golf course penal for the average golfer. Our foursome lost close to 40 balls playing it.....many of those were 3 to 5 feet off the fairway. I realize this is Irish golf and not USA golf but Tralee, Ballybunnion, Waterville, Portstewart, Portrush and... More

We did not about this course before we played it. What a beautiful layout. Good fairways but tight. Off the fairway is penal. Lots of ups and downs but great views. Found a couple of birdies to make it better. I would recommend this course to anyone.

Everyone was very helpful and friendly and the food was good in the clubhouse. We ate before and after the game and the seafood chowder was especially good, and the banoffee. It was a dry breezy day and the course is challenging, with the rough near landing areas being very penal. Lots of hard weird bounces are to be encountered... More

Played the Mussenden course, what a fantastic experience. One of the best courses I've played on the North Coast. Amazing condition around the entire course from tee to green, and a true test of golf.

Grandparents, Parents & children went for a meal. Restaurant was not too busy with plenty of room around the tables with attentive and knowledgeable staff. Children's menu was as good as I have seen and my three children had the rump steak which for an extra £1 was well worth it. All adult meals were excellent with good portion sizes... More

Finally got to play it with the sun on our backs. Love this course proper links and in perfect condition although the rough on this day was so unforgiving, long wispy grass about 18"/24" in height and as thick as Santa's beard They should supply a stroke saver with every four ball even if it's at an additional cost it...

What a difference a year makes! Castlerock Golf Club restaurant/bar has changed beyond all recognition! The once grim dining experience with unhappy staff, slightly hostile reception and a rather odd overly long and unwieldy menu has been transformed into a buzzy, friendly place with smiling staff and an accessible "I want to eat everything" menu. We have a holiday place... More

Played Castlerock with my Brother-in-Law. in an Open Competition in June. We both enjoyed the experience and met up with a couple of Irish guys where there for the same reason. Very friendly. It was little bit windy when we set off and with the wind behind us the first few holes were relatively easy. Pars were common. The shock... More
