Cushendall Golf Course

Cushendall Club Crest

This little gem of an 9-hole Parkland was designed by D. Delargy and has been in existence since 1939. Built on the shores of Red Bay, it offers majestic views of the Scottish Coast and the Mull of Kintyre. The River Dell meanders its way through the course and creates out of bounds on the 7th and 9th holes.

The Club has a very high membership for a 9-hole course in the region of 900 so it would be very advisable to ring in advance to ensure that a tee time is available when you wish to visit this "little gem".
