- The golf course is on a headland reaching
out into the Irish Sea on the northern end of the peninsula of
Islandmagee and is bounded on either side by the sandy beaches
of Brownsbay and Ferris Bay. It overlooks the Port of Larne and
the mouth of Larne Lough and has fine panoramic views of the
Antrim Coast and, on a clear day, the west coast of Scotland.
- It is a 9-hole/18-tee course part parkland/part
links of par 70 and total length 6179 yards (Ladies par 74, length
5884 yards). 9 new teeing areas have been added which allow 18
unique holes by varying the length and perspective from the tee
of the existing holes on the front and back nines.All the holes
have their own distinctive characteristics but while the opening
five of each nine are not overly demanding or punitive of wayward
shots, the closing stretch of 6th/15th, 7th/16th, 8th/17th and
9th/18th do not give up good scores easily especially in the
prevailing westerly wind.
