Stunning

Lovely course. Big long track. Requires accuracy from tee to green. Played it once about 15 years ago. Won't leave it so long next time!

Mussenden is a nice track

Nice track for the money. Conditions were great. Played with two younger members who were a pleasure. The nine hole Dunn course has some great views of the water, and some dramatic hills, but a bit short on some of the 9 holes. Worth playing 9 as a warm up to the big course.

A solid links near Portrush and Portstewart in Northern Ireland

The River Bann - the longest river in Northern Ireland - isolates Castlerock from its more famous links neighbors along the Causeway coast of Northern Ireland: The 54-hole Portstewart Golf Club and 36-hole Royal Portrush Golf Club.

Castlerock's Mussenden Links lacks the dunes of Portstewart. They're better utilized on the club's spectacular Bann course, which maybe the best nine-hole course I've ever seen.

Mussenden Links, a par 73 dating to 1901, winds outside the perimeter of the dunes, never getting too close to the river or sea, but still offering glimpses of both. The fun comes from a collection of unique holes - the uphill, dogleg second; the par-3 fourth between the railway line and a burn; the burn-crossing at the sixth and the signature 'Quarry' par 3 in the dunes at no. 9. A blind tee shot over a ridge on the par-5 15th hole sets up a strong finish. The 357-yard final hole plays much longer with the approach to an elevated green. It's not necessarily a bucket-list links compared to its more famous neighbors, although it's still worthy of a visit.
