Ardglass Golf Course is an 18 hole links course on the north-eastern coast of Ireland with many stunning views and excellent and unique golf holes. The course is just 50 minutes by car from Belfast and only 30 minutes from the world renowned Royal County Down golf links at Newcastle.
The course is a true test of golf, particularly on a windy day. The course hugs the coastline, with no fewer than 8 holes where the Irish Sea coastline comes into play. The Irish Sea is visible from all 18 tees and greens and on a clear day it is possible to see across the Irish Sea to the Isle of Man.
Ardglass really is a course to savour with some outstanding holes. The 1st from the Medal Tee, the daunting 2nd, the unforgiving 11th and the picturesque Par 3 12th each of which requires a carry across the coastline or cliff tops of the Irish Sea. These rank among the best, most photographed and talked about golf holes in Ireland. This is our local course and the place where we fell in love with the game.
