Royal Portrush Golf Club

Simply put, the Dunluce course at Royal Portrush is one of the world's finest links courses and the only course in Ireland to have hosted the British Open. Overlooked by the ruins of the 13th Century Dunluce Castle it is a masterpiece of golf architecture. Famous for its magnificent turf and excellent holes, many of which require long and accurate drives made all the more difficult by the high winds. Unimaginable rough and tricky greens, thrown with windy conditions make this course an admirable test for a seasoned golfer.
Portstewart Golf Club

A claim is often made that Portstewart has the best opening hole in Irish Golf - some say in the world. Situated on Ulster's magnificent Causeway Coast, Portstewart Golf Club is one of the very few 45 hole complexes in Europe. Going back to 1951, when the course was used as a qualifying venue for the Open Championship at Royal Portrush, it seemed that Portstewart was destined to be forever cast in the shadow of its more illustrious neighbour. Not any more. Everything changed when the new championship layout of the Strand Course hosted the Irish Close Championship in 1992.

Castlerock Golf Club

Castlerock is another great links course on the Causeway Coast, lying where the River Bann enters the Atlantic Ocean. Set among rolling sand dunes it offers stunning views of Donegal, and even Scotland on a clear day. The Championship Mussenden Course is a par 73. The best known hole is the fourth, called the "Leg O'Mutton", a 200 yard par-3 with a railway line to the right, a burn to the left and a raised green.
Rossapena Golf Club

It is here, where the bays of Sheephaven and Mulroy converge, that a unique experience awaits. The wild Atlantic has chiselled the rugged features of Rosapenna and the beauty is spectacular, the air is invigorating and the welcome is warm and sincere. Each hole is both a challenge and a charm, with picture postcard scenes composed of mountains, oceans, sky and dunes. Rosapenna offers golfers an unparalleled opportunity to enjoy links golf at its best.

Ballyliffen - Glashedy Links

Described as "The Ballybunion of the North" Ballyliffen is Ireland's most northerly links and comprises 365 acres of spectacular dune land, surrounded by rolling hills and mountains with the Atlantic Ocean as its western boundary. Glashedy Links opened for play in August 1995 and its location on the north western Atlantic Coast makes it a magnificent setting. Designed by Pat Ruddy and Tom Craddock, it has been laid out on predominantly higher ground above and beyond the Old Links. The challenge presented by the Glashedy Links is almost as formidable as it is exhilarating.
