Galgorm Castle

Published by Golf’s Greatest Holes on 23 September 2021

Host venue of the 2020 Dubai Duty Free Irish Open, the Galgorm Castle championship course is the heart of professional golf tournaments in Northern Ireland. The Par-72 layout is one of Ireland’s finest parklands and was designed by Simon Gidman, opened in 1997. The course is nestled in the heart of the 2020-acre historic Galgorm Castle Estate, and is bordered by the river Maine and Braid which come into play on numerous holes, as well as five lakes and magnificent oxbow lake adjacent to the 14th hole.

The scene of many major tournaments on the European Tour. Chris plays the 18th. A great way to finish a round. A par 5, with a testing tee shot and approach with the green surrounded by water.
