As the spiritual forebear of Old Head in Ireland and one of a handful of courses on the Isle of Man, Castletown is situated on a rugged peninsula on the southern tip of the island.
Unlike so many links, it is possible to enjoy views of the sea from every hole, and these will not be blocked by trees as there is just the one on the entire course.
The recent bunker redevelopment programme should reap dividends and there are some thrilling holes, with both the 5th and the 17th guaranteed to really set the pulse racing. RS
+ Great value; cliff-top golf in a dramatic location - Not easily accessible; to be avoided during TT fortnight
