Some of the main golf courses on the Isle of Man:
Castletown Golf Links
Surrounded on three sides by the Irish Sea, Castletown, on the Langness peninsula, is listed as one of the top golf courses in Britain and Ireland. The clubhouse serves local Manx produce, starting from breakfast, staff are warm and welcoming, and fantastic views are all around. The links course is maintained in excellent condition, aided by drain away fairways and fast greens! The course has been compared favorably with Pebble Beach (Castletown was preferred). The Golf Shop is available and again, staff are welcoming and helpful.
Ramsey Golf Club
A beautiful parkland course with a brook running through and treed hillsides around, Ramsey Golf Club, in the North of the Island, is a hidden gem. It is a full 18 hole course set on mainly flat, even ground. An easy walking course.
Peel Golf Club
On the west of the Isle of Man, on heathland among pine trees and gorse, Peel Golf Club has many fascinating variations. This picturesque, 19th century course begins deceptively easily, then starts to grab your attention and become more challenging as you go along. Natural challenges include turf banks, streams and gorse bushes, with many holes cut into the pine tree forest surrounds. The course itself, meanwhile, is maintained in excellent condition.
King Edward Bay Golf Club
For some of the absolute best views on the Isle of Man are found at King Edward Bay Golf Club, elevated on the outer edges of Douglas. Beautiful springy turf makes walking a joy, and breathtaking views of Douglas Bay from some of the holes, set among the heather.
