Ballycastle Golf Club. Pleasure comes first here, with challenge as an afterthought. It's beautiful (five holes wind around the remains of a 13th-century friary), short (less than 6,000 yards), and has an unusual mix of links, parkland, and heathland holes. Views stretch across the north Antrim coastline to the hills of Donegal and on a clear day, north to the coast of Scotland. It's also just a few miles from Bushmills, the world's oldest distillery. 2 Cushendall Rd., Ballycastle, Co. Antrim, BT54 6QP. 028/2076–2536; £75. Visitors: daily.
