Royal Portrush Golf Club is home to one of the best and most challenging links golf courses in the world, the Dunluce Links. It is the only club in Ireland to have hosted The Open Championship. Royal Portrush is a members club which welcomes visitors all year round to face the challenges of it's courses and to brave the testing conditions.
Founded in 1894, this championship links course received its greatest makeover with the purchase of land known as “Thistly Hollow” in 1986. This enabled the club to build a stunning new seven holes through towering dunes and fabulous, natural links land. Designed by Des Giffin, the Strand Course is the jewel in the Portstewart portfolio. Portstewart Golf Club will host the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open in 2017, setting up a three-week spell of links golf culminating in the Open Championship.
Castlerock Golf Club is situated in the seaside resort of Castlerock, which lies approximately 5 miles west of the town of Coleraine on the North Coast. Castlerock is a fabulous links course set amongst rolling sand dunes. Scenic qualities embrace the River Bann flowing out to the Atlantic offering eye-catching views of Donegal and, on a clear day towards Scotland and the Isle of Islay. An ideal retreat in which to play golf.
Bushfoot Golf Club celebrated it’s 125th Anniversary in 2015. The club began back in 1890 although it is likely that golf was already being played on the links prior to that date. Since 1890 the Club has grown in area, its membership has increased and its general development and ethos have mirrored the times in which it has existed. Set against the beautiful backdrop of Runkerry House, it is delightful gem of a links course. Ideal for those who want a reasonable challenge, but not too difficult or penalising if you miss the fairways. Watch out for the train that runs through the middle of the course!
The Castle Course is ranked as one of the top golf courses in Northern Ireland and it is easy to see why. Home to a number of European Tour events, the 200 acres of sweeping mature parkland offer a beautiful challenge, set amoungst some of Northern Ireland's historical landmarks. The course is bordered by the rivers Maine and Braid, together with a magnificent oxbow feature and five impressive lakes. The perfect choice for those looking for a golf trip with a difference.
