Castletown Golf Links
Golfers have been enjoying the course at Castletown since 1892 when Old Tom Morris laid down this magnificent seaside track. Revised by Mackenzie Ross in the late 20s and early 30s, the course now offers golfer of all abilities a great test of traditional links golf from start to finish and some spectacular views along the way. The quality of the course has been highlighted by the hosting of top amateur and professional events in recent years including the 1979 PGA Cup and various Europro Tour events plus being named by Rolex among the top 1000 course in the World.

Castletown Golf Club
Castletown Golf Links is located at the south-eastern tip of the Isle of Man, on the rocky Langness Peninsula, better known locally as Fort Island. This breathtaking piece of land is bordered on three sides by the Irish Sea and is connected to the mainland by a thin strip of rocks. Like some other more famous links courses in the UK and Ireland, such as Turnberry and Nefyn & District, Castletwon is simply stunning and no matter how you are scoring you are sure to enjoy strolling the fairways.
Little has changed since Mackenzie’s post World War Two tweaks and as such Castletown offers as traditional a test of links golf as you will find anywhere in the UK. Natural hazards including wild rough, rocky beaches and menacing gorse all stand between you and a good score but the biggest challenge to be found at Castletown is the wind. The course is laid out high above sea level and, with only a few small mounds a no sand dunes, there is no protection from the elements. When the wind gets blustery, punch shots and old fashioned bump and run shots are the order of the day.
There are many great golf holes at Castletown, but one of the best, and most memorable, is the par 4 17th. With a forced carry across a deep rocky gorge form the tee you will do well not to let the sea crashing into the rocks below disturb your concentration.
