Legendary courses, world-class champions, no membership required for entry into top courses and a friendliness that knows no boundaries. All this in one little island.
Legendary is a pretty big word in golf circles, but when you see the combination of challenging links (a quarter of the world’s links are right here!), gorgeous parkland greens,stunning scenery and brilliant, easily accessible off-course activities, it’s no wonder people think golf here is pretty special!
Tee off at one of Rory McIlroy’s favourite courses. Royal Portrush
in County Antrim, and get a flavour of the action that will be happening there during the Open 2019; taste the salt on your lips at Portstewart Golf Club
, host of the Irish Open 2017; indulge your game at the Old Head Golf Links
in Kinsale – “WOW,” was all Tiger Woods could say as the early morning fog cleared at the 15th; challenge yourself at Royal Country Down Golf Club
, favoured by Golf Digest as their number one in the world; or tackle that Atlantic wind at Lahinch Golf Club
– a place that Phil Mickelson forged some of his fondest golfing memories.
The fun isn’t just confined to the fairways, either… head off from these magnificent courses and explore the Causeway Coastal Route, take to the Wild Atlantic Way, explore the stories from Ireland’s Ancient East or get to know our cities with their 100,000 welcomes!
