We have two Golf facilities in the borough – at Craigavon Golf and Ski Centre and in Loughgall Country Park.

Golf is an excellent activity which allows you to get out in the open air and enjoy the company of friends. It helps improve flexibility and heart health as well as burning calories. There is a very low risk of injury and helps to improve your sleep.

Loughgall

Loughgall Country Park and Golf Course has been designed to provide all golfers with a test of skill and composure.

The front nine holes of this eye-catching par 72 course will surely challenge golfers irrespective of their handicap. The 3547 yards to be covered incorporate the mischievous par 3 5th hole at 223 yards and the testing par 5 9th at 614 yards.

The shorter back nine presents an opportunity to perhaps restore lost ground by picking up shots with short par fours but watch out for the tricky 17th. With water hazards, bunkers and some cleverly-placed sloping areas, the course is meant to bring out the best in those using it. The fairways, although generous, still ensure that those guilty of errant shots will pay a penalty whereas smart club selection and strategic play will be rewarded with better scores.

The greens have been constructed to USGA (sand based) specification and with an average size of 700m sq some lengthy putts are usually the order of the day.

Overall, if your goal is a golfing challenge in appealing surroundings at a reasonable price, then you will have found it at Loughgall Country Park.
