NORTHERN IRELAND: GOLF GIANT
In geographic terms, Northern Ireland is not a huge country. But when it comes to golf, make no mistake: it’s a giant, with 90 clubs and champions like Rory McIlroy, Darren Clarke, Graeme McDowell and Stephanie Meadow to prove it.
Northern Ireland is the perfect mix of Links and Parkland golf courses. Home of the Golf Digest Number One Golf Course in the World, Royal County Down. And home to the host of The 148th Open, Royal Portrush. The Open will return to Ireland’s shores once more in 2025 for The 153rd Open.
As if further proof was needed that Ireland the best place to play golf, many of our courses have been accredited with a Golf Quality and Assurance award. The accreditation is designed to certify quality assured Golf Courses in meeting and exceeding customer expectations. These awards raise the bar when it comes to standards at golf clubs, with a particular focus on customer service. Having these high standards means you can enjoy the experience at every step, from the welcome and reception you receive, to clubhouse facilities and services, and certainly the golf course itself.
