Royal Belfast Golf Club is the oldest golf club in Ireland.
In 1925 the decision was made to appoint the eminent course architect of the day H S Colt to take full responsibility for the design and layout of the course. He produced a course of great charm which remains much the same today as it was then, a tribute to the enduring excellence of its original design. The new course opened in September 1926 and over the years has played host to a number of championship events.
In recent years our facilities have been extended but continue to retain their early charm and we are proud to have among our Members Mr Rory McIlroy who is often observed enjoying the challenges of our golf course.
