Ardglass Golf Club
One of the most scenic, breathtaking courses in Ireland with the mountains of Mourne as a backdrop. On a clear day, you can see across to the Isle of Man. This golf course offers a true test for all levels of golfers with its championship standard greens and many cliffs and canyons for good measure. The first five holes meander along cliff tops with the Irish Sea to the left. The second hole is a daunting par 3. Your tee shot must carry a cliff and canyon, and that’s the easy part of the hole. Ardglass is also renowned for its warm hospitality on and off the course. The Clubhouse was formerly known as Ardglass Castle, and this magnificent building is steeped in history and tradition dating back to the 14th century.
Located 30 miles from Belfast on the rugged County Down coast, Ardglass Golf Course is links golf as it should be. With views of the raw and beautiful Irish coast line from every hole and the Mourne Mountains providing the perfect back-drop, Ardglass has a true claim to be rated amongst the world’s greatest links courses, and epitomises the beauty of Ireland golf travel.
This Eighteen hole seaside course, Par 70 with championship standard greens, is the perfect example of what Ireland golf tavel is all about. Currently number 75 on the Golf Digest Irish Course rankings, this course will certainly be a fun challenge. The first five holes, with the Irish Sea and cliffs tight to the left should be treated with respect and anything resembling a hook will meet with disaster. The second hole is a daunting Par 3. Your tee-shot must carry a cliff and canyon and that’s the easy part of the hole. While standing on the tee-box the superb view of the Mountains of Mourne should not be missed.
There are plenty of distractions if the golf is not up to scratch. In the heart of the local fishing village lies this spectacular course, allowing you the opportunity to explore rural Ireland, while still only a short car journey from Belfast City.
