Ardglass Golf Club is an 18 hole links course on the north-eastern coast of Ireland with some stunning views and unique golf holes.

Founded in 1896 and located in County Down, Northern Ireland, Ardglass Golf Club is situated 30 miles south of Belfast. The links course creates a challenging test of golf, particularly on a windy day.

The David Jones-designed course hugs the coastline, with the Irish Sea visible from all 18 holes. On a clear day it is possible to see across to the Isle of Man.

Highlights

The Par 3 2nd, the Par 5 11th and the Par 3 12th require a carry across the coastline and cliff tops of the Irish Sea and rank among the best.

Food & Drink

It’s worth visiting the clubhouse after your round as it’s the oldest building in the world to be used as a real clubhouse. Parts of the building date from no later than 1405AD.

The bar serves a complete range of beers, including beer from the village micro-brewery. Ardglass is a working fishing village, and that is reflected in the clubhouse menus with fresh fish and seafood always available.

The local area

Things to do

Ardglass is located at the foot of the Mourne Mountains, around 20 miles from Royal County Down. Sightseeing attractions in the region include Dundrum Castle and Murlough National Nature Reserve.

The Norman era Dundrum Castle is situated around 30 minutes west of Ardglass. The Castle is believed to have been built in 1177 by John De Courcy as part of his invasion of Northern Ireland. It is considered an important example of Norman architecture.

Murlough National Nature Reserve is a 6000-year-old sand dune system owned by the National Trust and managed as Ireland’s first Nature Reserve since 1967. It is an excellent area for walking and bird watching due to its spectacular location at the edge of Dundrum Bay and the Mourne Mountains.
