Why NI is made for golf

With The Northern Irish Open set to rock the fairways of Galgorm Castle Golf Club this August, we’re taking a look at just what it is that keeps Golf Royalty flocking back to these parts.

Northern Ireland is home to some of the world’s finest courses, designed by some of the world’s finest pros. So we’ve already got a winning combination! 

We’ve hosted many a great golf challenge here.

There was of course the fastest selling, record breaking Irish Open Championship: when the world came to tee off at Royal Portrush back in 2012.

And we continue to create world champion players in the shape of Rory McIlroy, Graeme McDowell and Darren Clarke; with top of the range golf academies dotted all around the province to encourage kids from all backgrounds to get involved.

Maybe it’s the country itself that gives NI that golf ‘je ne sais quoi’: Its rugged, majestic landscape instantly makes players up their game. This terrain is not for the faint-hearted.

Or perhaps there’s something in the water. Well, some of the world’s best links are to be found here. Just watch your step, and keep your eye on the ball.

Our best suggestion? Come and find out what it is for yourself.

Call us and we’ll put together a fantastic golf package in Northern Ireland for you.
