this course is pure heaven

Castlerock is the "hidden gem" with some holes in the dunes and some inland more reminiscent of the Scottish links with their more muted mounds. Either way, I loved the course and its 9-hole Bann Course is among the more intriguing and audacious in the game, beautifully situated closest to the sea in the rugged dunes.
Castlerock, one of the most welcoming clubs in the land. The championship 18 is only slightly less vintage than the two Ports, but no less intoxicating. From the nerve-jangling fourth (only 200 yards, with the railway to the right and Snake River ditch to the left) to the innocuous 16th, Castlerock is simply beguiling.
