Besides the lake, the River Lagan comes into play on the dogleg 7th a 455 yard Par-4 index 1.

History of Malone

Instituted 1895 affiliated 1895

Ernest Young, the first Captain at Malone, was the guiding light behind the founding of this famous club. He was a member of the Royal Belfast Golf Club in 1885 in 1890 he became Hon. Secretary of the new Co. Down Golf Club at Newcastle. He found these two clubs too far from Belfast and decided to form a club nearer the city.

The Belfast Newsletter 29th April, 1895, records the first meeting "On Friday last 26th inst., a meeting of the promoters was held in the National Schoolroom, Malone Road. The Rev. R. W. Seavers B. D. Rector of St. John’s church, was in the chair. It was unanimously resolved that such a club should be forthwith established and that its designation be "Malone Golf Club", membership of which should be open to ladies and gentlemen. A committee was elected and the first Captain was Ernest Young, the Hon. Secretary was Mr. Joseph Pyke, the Hon Treasurer was Mr. W. A. Chapman.

By 1896, the club had 450 members and the entry fee was two guineas and an annual subscription of two guineas.

In 1919, the club moved to the Harberton Estate, which was an eighteen-hole course. Then in 1962 it moved again to its present location at Ballydrain, Upper Malone, and is now a twenty seven hole course.
