Course Details

Course Name: Kirkistown Castle Holes: 18 Yardage: 6167 Par: 69 SSS: 70 Slope Rating: 121
Kirkistown Castle is a true links course set on the Irish Sea coast of the Ards peninsula in Co Down. The course is a great but very enjoyable test of golf with some sporting Par4s and some varied and very interesting Par3s. Braid's bunkers still guard the superb but subtle greens. The Club is very welcoming to visitors.

    Your directions are misleading although probably understandable. The main road is to Portaferry not Pentaferry and the turn off is at (just after) Kircubbin not Kircublin. Regards
