British Open Courses in Northern Ireland

Royal Portrush Golf Club:

Royal Portrush - Dunluce Links , is an outstanding course in a dramatic setting at the tip of Northern Ireland. Ranked by Golf Magazine as the 15th best course in the world, Royal Portrush regained much deserved recognition at the 2012 Irish Open whereby spectators totaling 112,000 made their way to enjoy for themselves history in the making.  The Dunluce Links holds the distinction of being the only course in Ireland to have hosted the British Open, some 68 years ago! The 1951 Open Championship was also the only occasion the event was held outside of Scotland and England, an event where Max Faulkner claimed victory.  Designed by the respected H.S. Colt in 1929, the Dunluce Links is as fine a course as you will find anywhere and boasts tremendous views, like the particularly memorable 5th hole which leads to a green hanging on the edge of a cliff.  On June 16, 2014, the R&A announced that Royal Portrush, Dunluce Links, will be added to The Open Championship rota. Which edition of The Open Championship will Royal Portrush play host to has yet to be announced, but other venues have already been decided upon through 2018.
