Northern Ireland is a golfers playground. Once out of the hustle and bustle of Belfast, life assumes a quieter pace seeming to recall an earlier, more leisurely age, in an area rich in scenic beauty.
Of the golf courses in Northern Ireland, two stand out, both being championship courses in the classic mould. Close to the remarkable Giant’s Causeway, lies Royal Portrush, which hosted an Open in the early 50’s, and is now being considered by the R&A as a future venue, and of course Royal County Down, nestled in the foot of the Mountains of Mourne.
However, there is more to golf in the province than these two, superb as they are. Portstewart and Castlerock near to Portrush, are both links courses, worthy of note, as are Ardglass and Warrenpoint, in County Down. Royal Belfast and Malone are parkland courses whilst the course constructed at the Hilton Templepatrick makes excellent use of existing topography, to form an interesting parkland course.
