If you ever get the chance to play Royal Portrush then don’t miss out. Stunning part of the world. One of the best golf courses in the world.

Going to Ireland this year and playing last years Open Championship Course was one of the travel highlights this year. Loved the experience on a stunning day. Thanks for having me.

Royal Portrush (Dunluce Links Course) was host to The Open in 2019 for the first time in 68 years that it was organised in (Northern) Ireland. Well in my opinion it can come back sooner (rumours are that it will be back in 2026). If it is, then please play it before and go there to see how the big boys play it. The course is designed by top architect Harry S. Colt and if you have played more Colt courses you will see his trademarks. Relatively wide landing area's, though approach shot's and big slightly (sometime deviously) undulated greens.

The first hole par 4, where Rory shot that terrible 8, is ok to begin with yes there is out of bounds on the left and right but plenty of space on the fairway. The first cut at Portrush is a bit wider and more friendly (probably not during The Open) than courses like Royal County Down but the approaches have to be precise. If you miss the greens there are big run-offs that will take you 3 shots to finish the hole.

The views on and off the course are amazing when you look east you see the Giant Causeway and west you see the beautiful coast line. Especially the views from the green of hole 5 are amazing, and don't be long or you have to climb down to the beach... what's nice (and difficult) at Portrush is that the holes are not your classic links routing with nine holes out and nine holes in. This results in different wind directions on almost every hole. Some holes like 7 & 8 you really need to carry the ball to reach the fairway. On 16 a 200 yards par 3 (236! from the back-tee) you need a lot of carry because there is not really a bailout and the wind is most of the time against... so my flight members hit driver and I barely got my ball with a 3 wood left of the green for a well earned bogey... no wonder it's called Calamity Corner...

The clubhouse is huge (there is also an other 18 holes course) and the pro-shop well stocked. If you ever have the chance to play Royal Portrush go for it and I hope you have the same experience as I did; just sheer Links happiness! Also last tip; if you play here for the first time (or 2nd) please use a caddy, they are very knowledgeable tell great stories and will at least save you 10 shots, plus they will carry your bag and you will need all the energy you have to play this magnificent course.
