Malone Golf Club is one of Ireland's best parkland courses - it was founded in 1895 and has been part of the sporting and social landscape in Belfast since its inception. From its first location at Stranmillis to the current site at Ballydrain, the club has welcomed many golfers from all levels including those that simply want to enjoy the surroundings and bar facilities or, as it's called in Ulster, the 'craic'.

It is located 5 miles south of Belfast, in the lower Lagan Valley at Ballydrain. The course gently rolls through 330 acres of immaculately maintained parkland along the River Lagan and was designed by CK Cotton and Associates.

From the moment you drive up the tree lined entrance you know you are in a special place and what lies beyond the gates will definitely not disappoint.

The facilities include 27 holes of golf, three practice areas, a short game area, putting green and a lawn bowling green.

The main course comprises the Drumbridge and Ballydrain nines - named after the local area. Measuring almost 6,700 yards, Malone is a solid test of Golf. Accuracy from the tee is demanded due to the many mature trees that await a wayward tee shot.

After finding the fairway, golfers must negotiate the championship greens which, in conjunction with the grounds are maintained to the highest standards.

Malone rightly deserves its place alongside the elite courses in Northern Ireland and any golfing vacation to this area would not be complete without its inclusion.
