Designed by the legendary James Braid in 1934, Kirkistown Castle Golf Club is a true links course. Featuring elevated greens and elevated tee boxes, it is widely regarded as one of the best par-69 golf courses you are ever likely to play. Situated on the Irish Sea coast of the Ards peninsula in County Down, Kirkistown Castle is the most easterly 18-hole golf course on the island of Ireland and is the nearest links course to Belfast (less than 30 miles).
