Clandeboye Golf Club

Quality Assured Golf
This deservedly popular North Down club boasts two excellent courses, the Dufferin and the Ava. The vistas from the Dufferin Course over Belfast Lough and the Scottish Coast beyond, and Strangford Lough from the Ava Course create a perfect golfing ambience.

The Championship Dufferin Course, largely woodland/heathland in character, offers the golfer a genuine and demanding test. This highly rated course, renowned for its unforgiving opening holes, is exacting in its demands for skill, and memorable for its special features. The signature hole is surely the 386 yard par 4 fourth where the daunting tee shot into a narrow-necked fairway embraced on both sides of gorse heather and trees sends shivers through even the most hardened veteran.

The Ava Course is the perfect partner to its sister course, exemplified by ‘Tower Gap’, the 524 yard par 5 second hole. Rated one of the best holes in Ireland, this tree-lined masterpiece ensures accuracy is paramount for both the drive and second shots. A wonderfully mature course, it is a great blend of pleasure, skill and challenge set in stunning woodland surroundings.
