Golf Courses

Ballyliffin - Glashedy Links

BALLYLIFFIN – OLD COURSE 6937 YARDS – PAR 71

Full practice facilities

Ballyliffin Golf Club is widely regarded as the finest links complex in Ireland boasting two championship links courses – The Old Links and Glashedy Links. The new Glashedy Links is a Pat Ruddy and Tom Craddock masterpiece fashioned around the incredible dunes, and is rated amongst the best links tracks in the world.

Sandy Hills Links - Rosapennanks - Rosapenna

ROSAPENNA – SANDY HILLS LINKS 7183 YARDS – PAR 71

Full practice facilities

The Sandy Hills Links at Rosapenna opened for play in June 2003 and has matured into one of Ireland’s finest modern links courses. Where Old Tom settled for a course alongside the dunes, Pat Ruddy has gone straight through them from start to finish and created an awesome course that will test any golfer, yet somehow still seduce those that cannot live with it. Each hole is spectacular and the views across the Old Tom Morris Links toward the beautiful Sheephaven Bay will salve any wounds inflicted by this incredible golf course.

Ballyliffin - Glashedy Links

BALLYLIFFIN - GLASHEDY LINKS 7486 YARDS – PAR 72 – USGA 74.1

Full practice facilities

Ballyliffin Golf Club is widely regarded as the finest links complex in Ireland boasting two championship links courses – The Old Links and Glashedy Links. The new Glashedy Links is a Pat Ruddy and Tom Craddock masterpiece fashioned around the incredible dunes, and is rated amongst the best links tracks in the world.

Castlerock

CASTLEROCK GC - MUSSENDEN LINKS 6805 YARDS – PAR 73 – USGA 73.1

Full practice facilities

Castlerock is a fabulous links course set among rolling sand dunes. Its scenic qualities embrace the River Bann flowing out to the Atlantic, eye-catching views of Donegal and on a clear day towards Scotland and the Isle of Islay. An ideal retreat in which to play golf.

The Championship course, Mussenden Links is a true test of golf even for the advanced player.

Royal Portrush - Dunluce Links

ROYAL PORTRUSH - DUNLUCE LINKS 7317 YARDS – PAR 72 – USGA 73.6

Full practice facilities

The Dunluce Links is rated as one of the most challenging and spectacular links courses in the world and has undergone major changes as part of preparations for the 148th Open. Perhaps the most famous hole here is "Calamity Corner," a long par 3 featuring a steep dropoff short and right of the green. Spectacularly bunkered with narrow fairways and doglegs, Portrush is a supreme test of ball-striking, in particular when the wind is blowing off the northern coast.

The Strand - Portstewart Golf Club

PORTSTEWART 7118 YARDS – PAR 72

Full practice facilities

A ‘true test of golf’ is a much overused phrase, but in this case it is a reflection of the variety and ingenuity of the shots required to get round this masterpiece of a golf course. The views from almost every hole are quite simply, magical. The Atlantic is never very far away and the beauty of the course has to be seen to be believed. It is a treat that will take a very long time, if ever, to fade from the golfer’s memory. The jewel in the Portstewart crown.
