The backdrop of the Mourne Mountains provides Royal County Down with one of the most stunning settings for golf anywhere in the world. The stupendous course has it all, with undulating fairways and gloriously natural bunkering making it an exhilarating and at times challenging, place to play.
Host of the extremely successful 2019 Open, magnificent Royal Portrush is well and truly back on the The Open rota. A Harry Colt classic, recent alterations for The Open have elevated this must-play course to new heights. A thrilling rollercoaster ride that twist and turns through the dunes.
Quite simply, one of the most spectacular golf courses on the planet. Sitting entirely on a small peninsula, more than half of the holes play alongside towering cliffs with the churning Atlantic hundreds of feet below. The incredible setting delivers jaw dropping, fun filled golf.
Tom Watson calls it "the best course in the world", whilst famous golf writer Peter Dobereiner said "If sheer pleasure is the yardstick, then Ballybunion's Old Course gets my vote as No.1 in the world". Experience it for yourself to discover why it exudes a majestic feel unlike any other on earth.
Almost completely surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean and with mountains in the background, Waterville is a dreamy and timeless links of the very highest quality. Tiger Woods chooses to hone his links game here every year before The Open and is a member of the club, need we say more?
Course architect Arnold Palmer famously stated "I may have designed the front nine, but surely God created the back nine". With towering dunes and cliff top greens, the stunning setting represents paradise for those willing to challenge one of the finest links courses in the world.
If your idea of a perfect golf tour is world class courses followed by world class nightlife, then the island of Ireland is tailor-made for you! From Royal Portrush in the North East corner to Waterville in the South West, the entire Emerald Isle is littered with stunning courses of the very highest calibre, complemented of course by the world famous Irish 'Craic'.
Starting in the North, the Open Championship hosting Royal Portrush and the world ranked Royal County Down rightly grab all the headlines. However, with a stellar supporting cast including links classics such as Rosapenna, Ballyliffin and Portstewart, it is a little wonder the strength in depth of courses in the area has produced major champions such as Rory McIlroy, Darren Clarke and Graeme McDowell.
Moving down the East Coast, Ireland's capital city of Dublin provides the perfect base for a golf tour. Only 15 mins from the airport, you can be on the historic championship links at Portmarnock Golf Club within an hour of arrival, whilst the adjacent Portmarnock Links and nearby Royal Dublin and The Island make the perfect quartet for a short break links tour. Looking for a longer tour? No problem, simply add in the Ryder Cup hosting K Club and the Jack Nicklaus designed Mount Juliet, plus the magnificent links layouts at The European Club and County Louth - what's not to like!?
Last but by no means least, with no less than 7 courses ranked inside the UK & Ireland's Top 50, The Wild Atlantic Way on Ireland's South West coast is home to one of the finest collection of courses anywhere in the world. 5-time Open Champion Tom Watson knows a thing or two about links golf and called Ballybunion "the best course in the world", whilst Tiger Woods uses the area as preparation for The Open each year and is a member at Waterville, which should tell you something. Combined with several other world class links such as Lahinch and Tralee, the immaculate Adare Manor (host of the 2026 Ryder Cup) and one of the most spectacular clifftop courses in the world at Old Head, The Wild Atlantic Way is truly a must visit destination for any lover of the game.
