The Home of Golf and many legendary Open Championship golf venues. Links golf is Scotland is a pilgrimage for all golfers.

Golf Course/
Royal Portrush - Dunluce

Home to the 2012 Irish Open and the only venue outside of mainland Britain ever to host the Open Championship, the Dunluce Links at Royal Portrush Golf Club ranks amongst the world’s greatest courses.

Regularly at the top of magazine rankings around the globe, it is a masterpiece of golf course architecture. Unimaginable rough and testing greens, combined with the unpredictable weather of the roaring North Atlantic make this course an admirable test for even the most seasoned golf aficionado.

Harry Colt, universally acknowledged as one of golf’s greatest course architects, used the natural contours and dunes of the links land at Portrush to create a legacy which attracts golfers from all across the globe. His 7,143 yards Par 72 masterpiece is routed through rugged links land, and constantly changes in both direction and elevation, whilst all the time providing some of the most awe-inspiring scenery to be found in Ireland.

Royal Portrush Golf Club boasts some of the best golf professionals as its members, including Darren Clarke, Padraig Harrington, and Graeme McDowell, with Rory McIlroy holding the club record.

The club hosted the Irish Open in 2012, where Jamie Donaldson was declared champion in front of a sold out crowd.
