Founded in 1894 and redesigned by Willie Park jnr in the 1920’s this championship links course received its greatest makeover with the purchase of land known as “Thistly Hollow” in 1986. This enabled the club to build a stunning new seven holes through towering dunes and fabulous and natural links land. Designed by Des Giffin the Strand Course is the jewel in the Portstewart portfolio.
The Strand Course is without doubt one of the very top true links golf courses in Ireland. The Strand Course was designed by Willie Park Jr and Des Giffin and features undulating dunes, run off bunkers, rolling fairways and tricky manicured greens. The views from almost every hole are quite simply, magical. The Atlantic is never very far away and t…
The Riverside 2/3
The beautiful Riverside Course - a par 68 course - offers holes meandering along the banks of the River Bann. It's a great challenge and the Riverside Course is a perfect group/society course and for those who are not up for the mightiness of The Strand on any given day!

Wat een baan. De vergezichten en omgeving is ongelooflijk mooi. Zeker de eerste 9-holes zijn prachtig met torenhoge duinen, glooiende greens en moeilijke drives. Het is linksbaan dus je moet rekening houden met harde fairways en greens. Maar korte ijzers houden wel. Hole 2 is kort en je kunt een ijzer van de tee slaan, maar links heb je een flatgebouw aan duin. Greens las…
