The long history of Holywood Golf Club dates back more than a century but it's perhaps most well known for being the home club of 2011 U.S. Open winner Rory McIlroy. He attributes much of his success as a golfer today to the course, stating "It was a great course for me to learn the game on, it has all the traits that develop your game from playing it regularly." Holywood G.C. has a parkland layout that overlooks Belfast Lough and the surrounding countryside. The front and back nines differ greatly, allowing golfers to practice a variety of shots. For a quick round before or after work, the easily walkable front nine is a great option. The more challenging back nine tumbles across hillier terrain. The length of the golf course isn’t overwhelming but there are many interesting holes that require good course management and sharp short game skills
