Scottish Golf Trips

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 - Valley

The Valley Course at Royal Portrush lays between the East Strand and the Dunluce Course. As its name suggests, the course is situated between the huge sand hills immediately along the Atlantic shore and the higher ground on which the championship course is laid out.

That is not to say the holes of the course are routed over anything like plain, level lying land, far from it, as the Valley has more than its fair share of the humps, hollows and undulations to be found on any links worthy of the name.

Another of the great Harry Colt's designs, this is a very fine test of links golf. The 6,304-yard par 70 course boasts excellent greens, which are always every bit as well tended as the famous Dunluce.

The Valley's varied hole types, back-to-back style and elevated tees – which offer some awe-inspiring views – epitomise all that is good about links golf, and great about Royal Portrush.

The Causeway Coast Amateur Golf Tournament, which attracts over one thousand golfers to the Antrim coast each year, is played over the Mussenden at Castlerock, The Strand at Portstewart, Ballycastle, and of course, the Valley Course.
