The classic links golf course at Castlerock was made into an 18 hole layout by the famous Scottish club maker Ben Sayers in 1908 before Harry Colt made alterations to the course in 1925.
The Strand Course at Portstewart is regularly ranked third best course in Northern Ireland behind Royal County Down and Royal Portrush. Hosted the European Tour’s Irish Open in 2017.
Often ranked as the number one course in the world, the Championship Links at Royal County Down is a magnificent test of golf in the most beautiful of links settings.

Ardglass is a breath-taking links gem close to Royal County Down. Very unique in the fact that the Irish Sea can be seen from all 18 tees and greens, with it coming into play on 8 holes.
Although the second course at Royal Portrush, The Valley is a great links layout in its own right. Shorter and more forgiving than the Dunluce and a wonderful warm-up course.

Consistently ranked amongst the best courses in the British Isles, Portmarnock Old Course has hosted multiple Irish Opens and the Walker Cup. A pure and traditional links gem close to Dublin.
