  • Belfast is the vibrant capital city of Northern Ireland and birthplace of the Titanic, which famously struck an iceburg and sunk in 1912. Full of history, many attractions and a buzzing nightlife, Belfast is the perfect place to base yourself for a Northern Ireland golf trip.

    Whilst the Royals of County Down and Portrush tend to take all the plaudits in these parts, in this recommended vacation we have selected the best 'hidden gems', which offer great value and will not disappoint. Royal Belfast and the Strand Course at Portstewart offer a great contrast of the old and the new, with Ardglass and Castlerock providing a true links experience, and Ballycastle something a bit different.

    A great city, great golf and great value!

  • Practice Facilities
    These are not quite as abundant as they are at US golf courses, and you may struggle to find a practice range (or a conveniently located one) at the great, classic links courses in the UK and Ireland. Even if you do manage to find one, don’t be surprised if you have to purchase range ball tokens from the Pro Shop and self-serve!

    Tee Times
    Many of the golf courses you will wish to play are private golf clubs and therefore have limited tee times and restrictions on visitor play. Often demand outstrips supply, so it is never too early to begin planning your golf vacation.

    Handicap Restrictions
    Many of the golf courses have handicap restrictions for visiting golfers and will require to see official proof of your handicap. The primary reason for this is to ensure only seasoned golfers visit these courses and don’t hold up play.

    Attire in Golf Clubhouses
    Most golf clubs allow visitors to use their clubhouse facilities, including the locker rooms and dining areas. Over the last decade, golf clubs have relaxed their dress codes, however we recommend taking a pair of street shoes (not sneakers) to avoid any issues.

“Northern Ireland on a budget is very easy to do, but without sacrificing quality. Hotels are very reasonably priced and outside of Royal County Down, Royal Portrush and Portstewart you have some incredible golf courses that won’t break the bank”
