18 holes. Tree-lined parkland. Undulating terrain - several slopes to climb.
4 miles S of Belfast
Heading north-east on the A55 Belfast ring (south of Belfast) and just before the traffic light intersection with the A24, turn left into Purdys Lane. After o.2 miles turn right; after 100 yards turn left into golf club, directly opposite Knockbreda Parish Church.
Belvoir Park Golf Club: pronounced "Beaver" Park, this is without doubt one of Belfast's best - a very pleasant wooded parkland course, with an incredible variety of mature trees lining the good width fairways.
The terrain is constantly undulating (but not overly tiring), with many small valleys and ridges to be negotiated; several holes start from elevated tees, drop down into a valley, only to turn uphill somewhere around halfway, leaving you an uphill approach shot to an elevated green. The par-70 layout contains many good length par-3s and 4s, as well as the exquisite and heavily bunkered short par-3 8th hole. The back-nine feels a tad tighter than the front, and has a few water ditches to watch out for.
With excellent greens, superb bunkering, top-quality maintenance and picturesque views over Belfast, its no wonder that Belvoir Park is a firm favourite with local and visiting golfers alike.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and Sundays; not Saturdays.

The first President of Belvoir Park was Lord Deramore whose family had for generations owned the land that was to become the golf course. The Club purchased 163 acres of the Deramore estate on a 10,000 year lease. By permission of Lord Deramore, the Club was permitted to use his family coat-of-arms.
Ireland: 53rd best course in Ireland (Golf World, 2023).
