Fortwilliam course is bordered by the picturesque Cave Hill on one side and Belfast Lough on the other. Rising to over 1000 feet above sea level, Cave Hill makes a stunning backdrop to many of the holes.
Fortwilliam Golf Club is located off the Antrim Road at Downview Avenue in the suburbs of North Belfast. It is situated in an area of natural beauty offering stunning views of a tranquil Cavehill to the north-west and the busy Belfast Lough to the east.
Although not a long course, it provides a good test of golf as most holes have narrow tree-lined fairways and difficult-to-read greens. It measures over 6000 yards, Par 70. The clubhouse has excellent bar and restaurant facilities with a vibrant social life and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere at Fortwilliam. The food is second to none with great variety, value for money and friendly staff (which is why we return week after week). We have recommended the restaurant to many friends and family who are now regular visitors. One improvement that could be made is light entertainment on a Sunday afternoon. This would encourage diners to stay longer and put more revenue into the club.
