Castle Hume was known to many as a bog about 10 years ago, and this is why I think it is not receiving the recognition it should be.

To date, I don't seem to have played a harder course (well, honestly, Royal County Down, but that was with driving rain and a gale-force wind). I think this course is a hidden gem, and you can always be assured of a warm welcome, whether it's from the staff in the pro shop, members out and about or staff upstairs in the bar and restaurant!
