Located beside the Stormont Estate in east Belfast, Knock is a beautiful parkland golf course measuring 6,428 yards, par 70. Originally established in 1895, the course moved to the current location “Summerfield” in 1920, with leading golf course architects, Colt, Mackenzie and Allison being instructed to design the new course layout. Always in superb condition with fast greens and beautiful fairways, the course still retains many of the original features that were imagined all those years ago.
Knock offers a great test of golf, suitable for all levels of golfer and accomplished players. Long tree lined fairways require accurate driving and approach play with strategically placed bunkers testing club selection.
The Knock Golf Club Course is a beautiful parkland course situated on the outskirts of Belfast and is overlooked by the famous Stormont Buildings. Some of the most difficult holes are set in the backdrop of the magnificent Stormont Castle.
The Top 100 Courses is the only independent website dedicated to the best Courses in the world – they rate Knock number 22 of courses in N Ireland.
Knock poses a stern test of golf even for the very best player. With hole 10 being the only par 5, Knock’s par of 70 sets a stiff test from tee to green. Emphasis is placed on long accurate driving and with 17 of the greens having strategically placed bunkers around them, the challenge also demands good club selection and careful approach lines into the greens.
