Castlewarden is a fine, well developed, mature 18 hole course.
It is maintained to a very high standard. Our greens are always in a superb condition and bunkers have, in the past number of years, been replaced and are now in top condition.
We have an excellent drainage system which allows our course to remain open all year round.
We have an excellent practice range. Range balls can be purchased at a very competitive rate.
We also have an excellent putting green, chipping area in our walled garden.

We have a very successful Junior Programme. Juniors receive coaching from our Club Professional. There are regular coaching sessions available. We are lucky to now have some of our Juniors who have come through this programme playing at National, International and Provincial level.
Ladies Get into Golf
In 2016 we introduced a Ladies Get into Golf Programme. This programme runs for six weeks and participants then have an option to join at a very reasonable rate. This membership entitles the member to play casual golf outside of competition time. The programme includes group lessons with our Club Professional. Our lady members assist in this programme and “buddy” the new members. This has proved very successful and is an excellent way for ladies to try golf. Clubs and balls are provided.
Castlewarden is run by a Management Committee and is member owned. There is also a Committee of members to oversee Mens and Ladies Golf, led by our Captain and Lady Captain.
