Located 30 miles from Belfast on the rugged County Down coast, Ardglass Golf Course is links golf as it should be. With views of the raw and beautiful Irish coast line from every hole and the Mourne Mountains providing the perfect back-drop, Ardglass has a true claim to be rated amongst the world’s greatest links courses, and epitomises the beauty of Ireland golf travel.
This Eighteen hole seaside course, Par 70 with championship standard greens, is the perfect example of what Ireland golf tavel is all about. Currently number 75 on the Golf Digest Irish Course rankings, this course will certainly be a fun challenge. The first five holes, with the Irish Sea and cliffs tight to the left should be treated with respect and anything resembling a hook will meet with disaster. The second hole is a daunting Par 3. Your tee-shot must carry a cliff and canyon and that’s the easy part of the hole. While standing on the tee-box the superb view of the Mountains of Mourne should not be missed.
There are plenty of distractions if the golf is not up to scratch. In the heart of the local fishing village lies this spectacular course, allowing you the opportunity to explore rural Ireland, while still only a short car journey from Belfast City.
