Isle of Man

Overview

Surrounded by water on three sides, Castletown Golf Links on the Langness Peninsula has been touched by some of golf's greatest architects - Old Tom Morris and Alister MacKenzie. Unsurprisingly, there are sea views from every tee on the course!

The original design was done by Old Tom Morris in 1892. Alister MacKenzie updated the course after 1910 and just before WW1. It was Philip Mackenzie Ross who would return following WW2 to exert his influence.

The 7th hole is named "Race Course" as the first-ever derby horse race, The Manx Derby, was held on there over three furlongs in the 17th century.
