" /> Castlerock Golf Club lies approximately 8km (5 miles) due West of the town of Coleraine on the North Coast of Northern Ireland. It is a fabulous Ben Sayers designed links course set among rolling sand dunes. Its scenic qualities embrace the river Bann flowing out to the Atlantic, and also eye-catching views of Donegal and on a clear day towards Scotland and the Isle of Islay.

The Championship Mussenden Course is a par 73 running to 6,747 yards off the back tee. It has five par-5’s, four par-3’s, and nine par-4’s. The best-known hole is the 200 yard par 3 fourth hole, called the Leg o ‘ Mutton, it has a railway line to the right, water to the left and a raised green - a daunting prospect a times!

Over the past hundred years the Club has played frequent host to the country’s National Championships both Amateur and Professional and more recently in 2000, Castlerock Golf Club played hosts to the World Student Games, the first time this competition had been played in the United Kingdom.
