Portstewart Golf Club

Portstewart Golf Club

Founded in 1894 and redesigned by Willie Park Jnr in the 1920’s this championship links course received its greatest makeover with the purchase of land known as “Thistly Hollow” in 1981.

  • 18 hole
  • Links
  • Par 71
  • 6,467 yards

This enabled the club to build a stunning new seven holes through towering dunes and fabulous and natural links land. Designed by local school teacher Des Giffin the Strand Course is the jewel in the Portstewart portfolio.

Portstewart has played host to many major Amateur and Professional Championships over the years including most recently the British Girls Championship in 2006. Portstewart Golf Club is proud to offer 54 holes of golf spectacularly set on Ulster’s famous Causeway Coast with something for every golfer.

“The views over the beach, the sea and the dunes towards Mussenden Temple on the distant headland make this the best opening drive in Irish Golf. – Kevin Markham (Author of ‘Hooked’) talking about the first hole on the Strand course.

Local Knowledge
  • The par 4 second hole on ‘The Strand’ course is one of the most photographed holes in Ireland. The towering dunes on the left run the length of the hole and if you were standing at the top of the last dune you would be looking vertically down at the green!
  • The new completed club house is an excellent addition, beautiful stonework and make sure you pay a visit to the locker rooms, simply outstanding!
  • With its close proximity to Royal Portrush and Castlerock you have a perfect hat-trick of links courses in this beautiful part of the North.
