Royal Portrush golf course is one of the best and most challenging links golf courses in the world. In the five years between 1995 & 1999 and also in 2004, Royal Portrush Golf Club hosted the Senior British Open Championship (‘British Seniors’), and June of this year it held the Irish Open with the highest attendance in European Tour history.
Situated on the beautiful North Antrim Causeway coast, Royal Portrush Golf Club occupies a triangle of giant sand hills which present magnificent views in all directions. The hills of Donegal in the west, the Isle of Islay and Southern Hebrides in the north, with the Giant’s Causeway and the Skerries in the east. The course is overlooked by the ruins of 13th century Dunluce Castle and this gives its name to Royal Portrush’s famous Dunluce course. Royal Portrush is the only golf course outside Great Britain to host the British Open Championship in 1951, won by Max Faulkner, and are hoping to host it again in the very near future. The course itself is simple breathtaking with huge sand-dunn’s, knee deep grass Brier, hidden dips, blind tee shots and tight undulating greens, which all add up a unforgettable round of golf. And of course the ever changing weather can bring any low handicapper to there knee’s. A hard course to crack, a must play!
