LIMAVADY, Northern Ireland, June 1, 2007 - Northern Ireland is littered with stunning links courses. Royal Portrush and Royal County Down headline an impressive collection of golf courses that are becoming more and more popular as tourists rediscover the region after a decade of peace.
Located in the town of Limavady, the Radisson Roe Park Hotel and Golf Resort isn\'t out to compete against these 100-year-old links. Instead, it serves a niche offering Northern Ireland\'s only four-star golf resort and a golf facility that includes an 18-hole parkland course and full-service practice and teaching facility. And it\'s all within an easy drive of most top courses.
From the resort, you\'re a short drive to the towns of Castlerock, Portstewart and Portrush, all of which offer championship links golf. There are many scenic attractions along the A1 Causeway Coastal Route, including Giant\'s Causeway, Dunluce Castle and the Bushmills Distillery, the world\'s oldest whiskey distillery, dating to 1608. Ireland\'s northernmost links, \"Ballyliffin, is across the border in the Republic of Ireland and can be reached by the Foyle Ferry, which crosses the Foyle Lough in about 10 minutes. Note, however, the ferry is closed when the weather is poor and the drive around the lough is about two hours.
Belfast, Northern Ireland\'s capital city, is also less than an hour away.
The Roe Park golf course itself isn\'t one of those \"must plays\" of Northern Ireland, but it\'s a serviceable full-length parkland course set on hilly traditional Irish land that winds along the valley of the River Roe.
