A beautiful parkland course close to the centre of the seaside town of Bangor
Situated not far from the centre of the seaside town on the north coast of County Down the course reflects the character of the county with its undulating parkland course overlooking Belfast Lough, the Antrim Hills, Irish Sea and on a clear day Scotland.
Founded in 1903 with a nine-hole golf course the increased 18-hole layout was designed by James Braid (five times “Open” winner) and although it has since been modified it still retains many original features.
Though not an especially difficult course, it is enough of a challenge to entertain good players without discouraging the less able.
