Northern Ireland Golf Holidays

Northern Ireland’s golf history extends well over a century, when Royal Belfast became the first golf club on this island in 1881.  The passion quickly caught on and continues today.

Northern Ireland has dozens of courses created in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, many designed by designers rated among the very best…Harry Colt, Tom Norris and Alister McKenzie among them.  The grandest courses are Royal Portrush and Royal County Down, just as challenging and invigorating today and once again famous for nurturing no fewer than three Major Champions.  From the dedicated visiting golfer to the first timer Northern Ireland offers new places, new stories and new experiences to last a lifetime.

Even the most dedicated golfer has to agree there’s more to life than sinking putts Northern Ireland is compact and nowhere is more than 2 hours’ drive away from our two main cities, Belfast and Londonderry! Swap the lush green fields of Tyrone for the soft, golden sands of the Causeway Coast in under an hour, or leave the peaceful, picturesque Fermanagh Lakes and reach the Walled City of Derry in 90 minutes. You are never far from some of Europe’s most unspoilt scenery - dramatic coastlines, mountains, boglands, forests, and lakes.

Of course, there’s plenty of opportunity for the great food and renowned ‘craic’, the Irish word for fun.  Northern Ireland also has a busy calendar of festivals and fairs dedicated to everything from traditional music, to food, the sea, country and city life, the arts, and much more.

And Northern Ireland’s countryside has attractions for every interest, no matter which golf course is on the day’s agenda. You are never far from a stately home with glorious gardens, or a peaceful forest or the superb beaches.

Or if you’re looking for a rural break then discover parkland treasures located within the country estates, native woodlands, along lakeshores and reclaimed bog. Among the noteworthy parkland courses, there are more than a few stars: Clandeboye near the lively, attractive seaside resort of Bangor, and Radisson Roe Park, set in a beautiful valley opening onto the magnificent Causeway Coast facing the North Atlantic and close to the Giant’s Causeway.

Dramatic landscapes, quality accommodation and the hearty welcome which awaits you, mean that your next golfing holiday could really be the best you’ll ever experience.  And always remember… Links play in Northern Ireland is the closest to an extreme sport golf can get!

Northern Ireland’s rich cultural heritage means you’ll find 10,000 years of history as you explore the golf.  Ruins of medieval castles, stone farmhouses and ancient bridges are all part of the terrain here.  Many of the finest courses have been carved out in the grounds of country estates.  The most recent creation, Lough Erne, was designed by Nick Faldo.
