“Good Course, Not sure about Etiquette”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Was part of twoball and first out on the time sheet.
Even though we were first out and not holding anyone up, (9 holes in 95 minutes), Members jumped in front of us onto the 5th hole where the Tee was close to the clubhouse. They were also playing quite quickly so didn't hold us up even though it wasn't proper. However when we were on the 9th fairway, the three-ball of members that started immediately after us, jumped in front of us onto the 10th Tee., avoiding the long par 5 loop of 7,8,9. Immediately they were holding us up forcing us to delay on each shot, causing us to ultimately slow up and destroyed our game.

It seems that manners towards visitors are sorely missing on this course. We had a much more friendly reception elsewhere on the IOM.

Dear Sir,

Firstly, please accept our sincere apologies for the poor behaviour of 3 of our members when you visited the Links on Tuesday.

Castletown Golf Links is a family run business and we take great pride in the welcome that we give to our members and visitors alike, as is evidenced by previous reviews.We will be sure to speak to the members in question.

We are glad you enjoyed the course itself and hope that you are able to visit again, when we are sure you will have an improved overall experience. Please visit our newly revamped website - for further information and reminders of some of the more memorable holes.

“Great place for breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Dropped in for breakfast to start a one day visit to drive the TT course with a friend who had not been to the Island before.
I'm not a golfer by any means, and was welcomed by friendly helpful staff. Had a really good, reasonably priced full English(or is that Manx?).
The restaurant was fresh, clean and with stunning views, and just 10 minutes from the Ronaldsway main airport. What a brilliant way to start our day! (Sorry, I did not notice if they had disabled access, but a quick call will soon let you know)!
Highly recommended for food. As for golf...well the other people seemed to like it!

“Beautiful links in idyllic setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Last weekend I had the great pleasure of playing the beautiful course that make up Castletown Golf Links. Set on a peninsula in the south eastern most part of the island, the course is lapped by the Irish Sea on three sides. All this adds up to spectacular views at every turn. A Very warm welcome by the staff got the day off to a good start. We played on Sunday with a strong breeze and plenty of sun for company. The course was in excellent condition and even though my golf was a bit off par, the walk alone was well worth the very reasonable green fee. I've paid more for municipal golf. This place is a real gem, don't miss it!
