Castlerock Golf Club: Castlerock's Mussenden Links (as opposed to its smaller 9-hole Bann course) is another of those lesser known gems with all the thrills and characteristics of great links golf by the sea. In this case you are at the estuary end of the River Bann as it enters the Atlantic Ocean, and just downstream from another illustrious golf course, Portstewart, which can be seen on the opposite bank.
At Castlerock the sand dunes give the course its definition, and lead you through a very natural landscape, along some narrow-ish fairways and onto the excellent greens. Characteristically for top-quality seaside links courses, there are lovely rural and ocean views, impressive holes through good-sized dunes, as well as several flatter sections, wonderful deep revetted bunkering guarding the greens and many elevated tee-boxes.
At the village end of the course, the parish church looks down on all this links-land splendour from its lofty perch on a hill. Together with Royal Portrush and Portstewart, Castlerock makes up a triumvirate of excellent links courses just a stones throw from the town of Coleraine.
