Aberdelghy Golf Course is an 18 hole parkland course situated 5 minutes outside Lisburn City centre, just off the main Lisburn to Belfast A1 road.

 

One of the first municipal golf courses to be built in Northern Ireland, Aberdelghy was founded in 1986 and designed by Alec Blair and Greg Ferris as a 9 hole golf course. In 1998 the course was extended to 18 holes. Although the course is relatively small in length (4622 yards, Par 66) compared with some of the other golf courses around the area its tricky layout and tree-lined narrow fairways make it a challenging round of golf for even the skilled golfer and equally enjoyable to the keen amateur. Water comes into play on no less than five of the holes. The signature hole is undoubtedly the 3rd at 340 metres played as a dogleg through tall trees to an undulating green which is well protected by water.

 

Some new bunkers have been added more recently as the course continues to improve with many changes having been made within the past 5 years. In June 2011, the course reopened after the completion of the first phase of an intensive improvement program which included a major overhaul of the drainage system, several new greens, tee boxes and bunkers, several holes lengthened and a new irrigation system installed.
