  • There is lots of choice and diversity when it comes to championship standard golf courses at budget prices in Northern Ireland. Holywood and Galgorm Castle, for example, are two beautiful parkland courses. The former being home to Rory McIlroy and with unrivalled views of Belfast and its Lough, and the latter being one of three Northern Ireland courses to be named in the Top 30 of Irelands Finest Golf Courses . In contrast you have Ardglass, Castlerock and Portrush Valley all of which are classic links courses. At Ardglass you have the wonderful backdrop of the Mourne Mountains with the Irish Sea visible from all 18 tees and greens.

  • 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”
