Dunluce Course
at Royal Portrush Golf Club

Northern Ireland, Ireland

Dunluce Course overview

Style: Coastal Links

The Dunluce Links at Royal Portrush is ranked amongst the best courses in the world. Initially a nine-hole layout dating back to 1888, today’s masterpiece has been heavily influenced by famous architect Harry Colt’s redesign in 1929. A host to multiple national and international amateur championships as well as being the only course outside of mainland UK to host The Open Championship (in 1951 and 2019), this magnificent links is a supreme test of ball striking.

Signature Holes

The 5th is one of the most stunning par fours in golf. A 382-yard dogleg hole played from an elevated tee towards the ocean that rewards the courageous shot across a wide expanse of rough. Just beyond the back of the green is White Rocks beach, so don’t be long with your approach shot! Alternatively, the 236-yard par-3 16th hole known as ‘Calamity Corner’ is a beast and requires you to clear a yawning chasm between tee and green.

Did You Know?

Rory McIlroy shot a course record of 61 on the Dunluce Links when he was just 16 years old. He along with Graeme McDowell, Darren Clarke and Padraig Harrington are all honorary members of Royal Portrush.
