Bentra Golf Course is located in the County Antrim town of Whitehead, Northern Ireland. Touted as once the longest 9 hole course in Europe, now the longest 9 hole course in Ireland. The course at Bentra is designed with the experienced golfer and novice in mind, so there are some challenging moments but it is not too difficult throughout, providing an enjoyable round. The course offers some wide fairways with some particularly long holes which ensure a steady round on the whole. Clubhouse facilities include a confectionary shop, limited pro shop, sitting area, shower & locker rooms. Bentra Golf Course is situated beside the Bentra Grill bar & restaurant. Deals are often available for golfers when dining at Bentra Grill. Bentra Golf Course offers an attractive and inexpensive day's golf, for any standard of golfer. Bentra Golf course also has it's own 18 hole mini-golf course, situated beside the main golf course. This challenging, but fun little course has proven very popular with the public since it's opening in early 2015.

I've been here a few times for crazy golf sessions with our young children. It's a fun course and not very expensive- recommended!

North-west you see the tranquil waters of Larne Lough, then the idyllic Islandmagee peninsula. Next door is the unique green space of Whitehead’s Diamond Jubilee Wood. Check out the photos:... More

This looked like a beautiful golf course from the road but unfortunately once we got on the course we realised it was not so beautiful up close. The greens - well I've seen better fairways. Fine if you are just learning. Real shame because the layout is very interesting. Spend your tenner on Larne Golf Course instead (Larne advertise on... More
