RETURN TO SAMPLE TOURS PAGE

This five-night, five-round package takes golfers through the finest courses in Northern Ireland, presenting the true links experience on varying terrain with brilliant views. Royal County Down, an Old Tom Morris design, is generally considered as one of the top 10 courses in the world, and also as one of the more difficult courses in Ireland and beyond. Royal Portrush - Dunluce Links holds the distinction of being the only club outside of Scotland and England to ever host The Open Championship (1951) which it will do again in 2019. Ballyliffin - Glashedy Links is Ireland’s most northerly course, having opened in 1995. Many experts have ranked this fine layout as the best modern links and it’s often referred to as the “Dornoch of Ireland.” Ardglass is a classic seaside design, set on black rock where smugglers and pirates once roamed. The par-3 2nd hole is nestled in a cove on the shore, offering beauty and challenge. Read More.
