Northern Ireland’s golf history extends well over a century, when Royal Belfast became the first golf club on this island in 1881. The passion quickly caught on and continues today. Northern Ireland has dozens of courses created in the late 1800s and early 1900s, many designed by some of the leading and most innovative course architects of the day, such as Harry Colt, Tom Norris and Alister McKenzie (designer of the Augusta National Golf Club). These include the grandest Royal Portrush and Royal County Down, still just as challenging and invigorating today.
