Golf Course/
Castlerock

Named for the famous temple that dominates the cliff-line along the dramatic Derry coastline, the  Mussenden course at Castlerock Golf Club is one of the game's true joys.

The club is situated in a seaside village with which it shares its name, and is full of charm and character. And once you're out on the course, it's impossible not to be taken by rolling beauty of the landscape and the unspoilt splendour of the dunes, the River Bann and the Atlantic.

The par-3 fourth hole, nicknamed the Leg o' Mutton, is one of the most famous in Irish golfing circles and a true test of nerve and skill, but in truth every hole at Castlerock deserves attention.

The homeward stretch provides plenty of slopes to keep the game interesting, but it is the scenery that is particularly spectacular. On a clear day, golfers have an excellent view of the Isle of Islay to the north and the rolling hills of Donegal to the west.

Boasting a good mix of hole types and with the weather always a factor, the Mussenden is a course that will challenge and entertain golfers of all skill levels time after time.
