Description

Northern Ireland's most famous club, Royal Portrush Golf Club, has the distinction of being the only club outside of Great Britain to host the Open Championship. Royal Portrush is home to two links courses, Dunluce and Valley. The Valley Links golf course is slightly shorter than the more famous Dunluce, making it a bit less demanding but it is a challenge no less. Valley lies between the East Strand, a popular beach for surfing, and Dunluce. The aptly named golf course plays through huge sandy hills that are situated along the Atlantic. Two of the most notable holes are played back-to-back. The par-4 fifth hole plays from an elevated tee to a green surrounded by towering dunes and menacing bunkers. Golfers are then subject to the par-3 sixth, which plays uphill to a green partially hidden by natural mounding.
