Royal Portrush G.C. - Dunluce course - 5th green


Royal Portrush Golf Club is home to two links courses, Dunluce and Valley. Dunluce Links is widely hailed as one of the best layouts in the world. In 1951, the golf course became famous for being the only course outside of Great Britain to host the Open Championship. It is named after the ruins of the 13th century Dunluce Castle that is perched above the course overlooking the pounding waves of the Atlantic. The golf course has challenging rough areas and tricky greens that will test even the best golfers. The fifth hole is one of the most challenging par 4s in Ireland. This dogleg hole plays from an elevated tee towards the ocean across a wide expanse of rough. For golfers who find Dunluce too intimidating, Royal Portrush's slightly shorter Valley Links course is less demanding but still provides a formidable round.
