Castlereagh Hills Golf Course

Castlereagh Hills Club Crest

Castlereagh Hills Golf Club was founded in 1983 and designed by one of Northern Irelands favourite sons David Jones. It is a 18-hole Parkland just outside the City of Belfast, measuring 5,700 yards with a Par 67 and a standard scratch of 68 off the men's tees. The ladies course measures 4,830 metres with a Par 72 and a standard scratch 70.

Catlereagh Hills Golf Club is in the process of upgrading the whole Course. At present 12 of the greens and tees are to USGA Standard and an ongoing programme will upgrade the remaining 6 holes over the next couple of years.

It is a fair but challenging round of golf where a warm welcome is extended to one and all in the clubhouse.

David Jones on his Course:

The 4th: a strategic, 'risk versus reward' short par four where a decision has to be made to lay up short of a broad stream, or go for the heroic carry to shorten the second shot.

The 7th:  ...which came out of nowhere following the discovery of an ancient "flax-hole".  This was excavated into a lovely little lake with stone bridges transforming what might have been a very ordinary par four into a superb one.

The 8th:  A tough uphill par four through the only band of mature trees on the site, to a well-protected and interestingly contoured green."
