Blackwood Golf Centre

One of Northern Ireland’s finest pay and play golf facilities

Over the years I have taken great pleasure in watching Blackwood Golf Centre mature into one of Northern Ireland’s finest pay and play golf facilities. Sitting amongst the ancient woodlands of the Clandeboye Estate, Our Hamilton and Temple Courses have long had a reputation for their beauty. Now, with years of continual improvement to layout and drainage along with expert green keeping, they have developed into fine examples of parkland golf.

The facilities at The Blackwood offer something for golfers of all ages and experience and are being added to and are improving all the time. The floodlit driving range with its automatic power tees is excellent for practice, the par 3 Temple Course is excellent for beginners and the Championship standard Hamilton Course is a good examination of anyone’s golf, whether you are a junior competing in our annual junior golf competition or a top professional competing in the PGA Ulster Championship (hosted by Blackwood on two occasions). The Blackwood now also boasts a golf shop.

I have watched many golfers pass through the Blackwood Golf Centre and look forward to welcoming many more over the years to come.
