Belvoir Park Golf Course

Belvoir Park Club Crest

The immediate impact on visiting Belvoir Park Golf Club is one of peace and tranquillity. Set in rolling parkland, the course has some of the finest specimens of mature trees some are said be over 150 years a growing. With the Black Mountains, Cavehill and the scenic village of Newtownbreda all, visible from the course set on 170 acres of the Deramore Estate. 

Belvoir was the scene of the emotional victory of Harry Bradshaw over Bobby Lock in the 1949 Irish Open Championship. "The Brad" had finished runner-up to Lock in The Open at Royal St. Georges earlier in the month after the infamous "broken beer bottle" incident. Harry said after his victory that "Belvoir Park is the finest inland course I’ve ever played on". It hosted the Irish Open Championship again in 1953 when the Scot Eric Brown lifted the trophy, he was aided some exceptional playing of the 16th a 204 yard Par-3. He had a hole-in-one and two birdies on his way to victory at this hole.

The feature hole is the 439 yard index 4 17th a real two-shot challenge. It is what is known as a delayed dogleg, with the forest along the left-hand side and the second is then a full carry over water to a raised green. Getting your par here is a bonus and lengthy periods have elapsed without this hole yielding a birdie.

Designed by the legendary Harry Colt Belvoir is a Par-70 measuring 6,597 yards and has a standard scratch of 71 off the white tees.

Belvoir Park has a magnificent clubhouse and the visitor is assured of a warm welcome after a memorable game of golf.

History of Belvoir Park

We should all be thankful for the vision and determination of that group of gentlemen, who in 1926, in a period of depression, worked together to form Belvoir Park Golf Club. In December 1926 at a meeting in St John's Hall, Newtownbreda a motion was passed approving the formation of the Club. A committee was appointed and the Lord Mayor of Belfast , Sir William Turner was chosen as chairman. Sir William Turner was to become the first captain of the Club and was captain in 1927, 1928 and 1929. The first President of the Club was the Lord Deramore whose family had for generations owned the land that was to become the golf course. The Club purchased 163 acres of the Deramore estate on a 10,000 year lease. By permission of Lord Deramore, the Club was permitted to use his family coat-of-arms. The course was opened by Lord Deramore in June 1929 with Sir William Turner hitting the first shot.
A persuasive figure in the formation of the Club in the earliest days was the Attorney General, Mr A B Babington (later to become Sir Anthony Babington whose family have long been associated with Royal Portrush Golf Club). He was a first-class golfer and a member of several clubs throughout the British Isles and it was on his advice that Mr H S Colt was employed as course architect. Mr Colt reported, “I consider that it will be possible to make a course affording an excellent test and, at the same time, one that will give maximum of pleasure to players”.
Those of us who have played a lifetime's golf at Belvoir Park believe that he was right. His skill as a golf course architect continues to be seen in a golf course which has remained largely unaltered since its design. A photograph in the Clubhouse, that was taken in the 1950's, shows clearly that the changes over the past 40 years have not been to the layout of the holes, or to the magnificent mature oak, beach, fir or other trees, some of which have stood for at least 200 years, but have been brought about by the planting of thousands of young trees. The holes on the course have been shaped and separated by thoughtful planting of many new varieties of species of trees.
In large part this was due to Dr J A Smiley, Captain of the Club in 1958, who was involved in the planting of 40,000 new trees, such as Scots pine, Douglas firs, Larch, Cypress and many other varieties. The forest between the 15 th and 7 th fairways was largely planted by Dr Smiley personally, and has been affectionately known as Smiley's wood.
Many famous golfers such as Peter Allis, Fred Daly, Rory McIlroy and the world renowned golf writer Peter Dobereiner, have rated Belvoir Park as one of the best inland courses in Ireland, if not the British Isles.
